“It’s Worse Than Punishment”
IFC Midnight has released an official trailer for the indie thriller The Other Lamb, described to be a fascinating and freaky, horror-cult film.
The Other Lamb originally premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and also took a bow at Fantastic Fest and the San Sebastian Film Festival.
The film stars Raffey Cassidy as a teenager born into a secluded cult where she and other young women live under the influence of a man called Shepherd (Michiel Huisman).
Here’s the trailer –
The official synopsis reads –
“For her entire life, the cult she was born into has been all that teenage Selah (Cassidy) has known. Along with a band of similarly cloistered young women she lives seemingly unstuck in time, cut off from modern society in a remote forest commune presided over by a man called Shepherd (Huisman), a controlling, messiah-like figure with a frightening dark side. But when her insular world is rocked by a series of nightmarish visions and disturbing revelations, Selah begins to question everything about her existence—including her allegiance to the increasingly dangerous Shepherd. Awash in images of primal, dreamlike dread, this provocative fable is a haunting vision of adolescent awakening and revolt.”
The Other Lamb is directed by Polish filmmaker Malgorzata Szumowska (Happy Man, Stranger, 33 Scenes From Life), and the screenplay is written by C.S. McMullen.
The Other Lamb will open at the IFC Centers in New York and Los Angeles on April 3, 2020 before expanding to more theaters.
