An unnerving trailer has arrived for You Are Not My Mother, an Irish folk horror film from writer-director Kate Dolan.
Set the week before Halloween, You Are Not My Mother follows Char, whose bedridden mother, Angela, has mysteriously gone missing. All that remains is her abandoned car parked in the middle of a field.
When Angela returns home to their North Dublin estate the following evening without explanation, it becomes clear to Char and her grandmother, Rita, that something is amiss. She might look and sound the same, but Angela’s behaviour has become increasingly erratic and frightening, as if she has been replaced by a malevolent force. As Halloween approaches, a night steeped in ancient Irish myth and legend, Char must unearth the dark secrets of her family in order to uncover the truth behind her mother’s disappearance and save her, even if it means potentially losing her forever.
Hazel Doupe and Carolyn Bracken star in You Are Not My Mother, which arrives in theatres and on demand in the US on March 25th ahead of its UK release on April 8th. Check out the trailer below!
