Overview

Twenty years after witnessing her mother murder her father and sister, Holly struggles to live a normal life while suffering from horrific nightmares. Then a reunion with an old friend leads her into the circle of a strange cult, led by a charismatic psychic who says he is destined to help her. Soon enough, her dreams start becoming all too real.

In his English-language follow-up to the much-buzzed-about Baskin, Turkish director Can Evrenol creates a creepy, mind-bending world for his heroine that solidifies him as one of horror film's most exciting up-and-comers. This ode to legendary Italian director Mario Bava and the pulp genre known in Italy as giallo is equal parts gruesome and surreal, making for a thrilling late-night ride.
