After world premiering at the Fantasia International Film Festival earlier this month, British horror film Martyrs Lane is coming to Shudder in September. The official trailer is here, and fair warning, it’s a creepy one.
In this unsettling ghost story, Leah, 10, lives in a large, old house with her family but can’t quite work out why her mother seems so distant. At night, she is visited by a mysterious guest who might be able to give her some answers. With a new challenge every night, Leah is rewarded with bits of knowledge that, when pieced together, threaten to shine a dangerous light on both the truth in her nightmares and of the world she lives in.
Ruth Platt wrote and directed the film, expanding on her 2019 short of the same name. Young actors Kiera Thompson and Sienna Sayer lead the cast, starring alongside Denise Gough (The Other Lamb), Anastasia Hille (Snow White and the Huntsman), Steven Cree (Outlander), and Hannah Rae (Broadchurch).
Wander down Martyr’s Lane when the film arrives on Shudder on September 9th. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
