IN THE DARK HALF in theatres today

Today sees the release of our micro-budget horror thriller IN THE DARK HALF, a compelling and mysterious story of a teenage girl's journey through her own unsettled imagination, made in association with Creative England. The film features Tony Curran (Red Road), Lyndsey Marshal (The Hours) and Jessica Barden (Tamara Drew). Empire says it's "compelling and creepy", Total Film calls it a "striking debut", but it's probably best to decide for yourself at the cinemas starting today, at Empire Leicester Square or Ritzy Brixton, or from the 31st of August at Watershed Bristol and IFI Dublin.

Set half in gossipy, shallow suburbia and half in the mystical, eerie woods, the film explores the nature of depression and delusion whilst maintaining a chilling edge.
15-year old Marie and 6-year old Shaun are neighbours. Whilst Shaun goes on hunting trips with his father Filthy, a secret den in the hill has become Marie's refuge from a world she is finding increasingly difficult to cope with. One night, while Marie is babysitting for Filthy, Shaun suddenly dies in her care. As Filthy's grief threatens to overwhelm him, Marie becomes aware of another presence. It follows her from the hill into the city and it won't leave her alone. It wants something from her. Is it the spirit of Sean? Or her unresolved past creeping into her present and distorting her perception of reality?
