Emily Redpath & Louis James in Mystery Thriller 'Help' Official Trailer
"I knew something strange was happening from the moment I got here…" An official trailer has debuted for an indie mystery drama titled Help, the feature directorial debut of British indie filmmaker Blake Ridder, who is self-distributing this one after a few fests. It played at the Cinequest Film Festival, and is dropping on VOD starting in February 2022 for any interested. A young woman's life turns chaotic when she uncovers a deadly secret about her friend. It's about a trio of friends that meet up in the idyllic English countryside, but "secrets are exposed and the friends come to see each other in a whole new light." Dun dun dun… The film stars Louis James, Emily Redpath, Sarah Alexandra Marks, and Duncan James. This looks much better than expected, although the erotic thriller story seems a tad cliche. Expect plenty of twists and turns.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Blake Ridder's Help, direct from YouTube:
A painful break-up prompts Grace to visit her friend Liv, who is living in the idyllic English countryside with her boyfriend Edward and his dog Polly. The trio start the weekend in high spirits but soon turns into chaos, as well-kept secrets are exposed and the friends come to see each other in a whole new light. Help is both written and directed by British filmmaker Blake Riddler, making his feature directorial debut after directing numerous other shorts and some acting gigs as well. You can also support him on Patreon. It's produced by Louis James. This first premiered at the 2021 Cinequest Film Festival earlier this year. Ridder's Help film will debut direct-to-VOD starting on February 14th, 2022 this winter. Who's interested in this?
