This will be premiering at the 2021 London Film Festival first before opening in the UK this fall, though there's no US date set yet. When a deadly secret rots the mind of a grieving widower, the decision to work alone on a deserted island morphs into a terrifying race to save his sanity and his own life. One mans spiraling madness meets a vengeful supernatural force. What starts as the perfect wind-swept escape becomes a race to save his sanity and his life. Starring Tom Hughes, Kate Dickie, Gaia Weiss, and Greta Scacchi. This has a really cute dog in this trailer, I'm just really worried something bad is going to happen to it. Hopefully not but you never know with horror. This looks pretty damn good - and terrifying.
