When her boyfriend dies suddenly in an accident, psychologically fragile mother-to-be Charlotte is taken in by his family – but they seem increasingly obsessed with her every move. Her suspicions grow and panic builds – but just how far will they go in their desire to control her and her unborn baby?

Chuck says:

Sporting a Rosemary’s Baby vibe, Joe Marcantonio’s thriller focuses on a pregnant woman plagued by hallucinations who suspects that the family of her deceased boyfriend has intentions for her unborn child. Propelled by a fierce performance by Tamara Lawrance as the beleaguered Charlotte, the film gets off to a strong start as it plunges the heroine into a domestic nightmare after her husband is tragically killed and she finds herself trapped in a palatial estate overseen by her domineering mother-in-law (Fiona Shaw). The tension builds slowly – too slowly- as the sense of claustrophobia mounts for Charlotte and she slowly starts to lose her mind. Birds of pestilence are a recurring motif throughout and some of the most striking images revolve around them. The conclusion proves anticlimactic, the film’s slow pace only exacerbating this.
