Vertical Entertainment has acquired the rights to the J-Horror inspired supernatural horror Still/Born. The film has received mostly rave reviews since screening at the first annual Overlook Film Festival, where the feature nabbed the Scariest Feature Award.
Starring Christie Burke, Still/Born follows a woman who gives birth to twins, but only one survives. As she spirals into madness she believes that a supernatural presence is after her only child. The film has been described as bearing resemblance to J-Horror, so we’re expecting lots of spooky water imagery and a demonic entity with long black hair…
Still/Born is the feature film debut of director Brandon Christensen and has a script written by himself and Colin Minihan, the director of Extraterrestrial and It Stains the Sands Red.
Vertical Entertainment plans to release Still/Born in early 2018. Hopefully we’ll get it in the UK soon.
