Lorcan Finnegan’s feature debut has been scaring the pants off film festival goers around the globe and now its Dublin’s chance to experience this dark paranoid trip.  A treat for horror fans, don’t miss this one before it vanishes into the forest of oblivion. It is screening now in the IFI and the Lighthouse cinema.
Our award winning sound team, Aza Hand, Patrick Drummond, Colm Mullally, Katie O’Mahony and Colm Finnegan created and mixed all of the sound and it has been been making a great impression on critics.  Harry Guerin from RTE Entertainment said “There is no blood and guts here, but in terms of doom you can fill your boots. The casting is excellent; it’s beautifully shot by Piers McGrail and the sound team should also sleep the sleep of the gifted.” And it has a score of 89% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. High praise Indeed!
A blend of psychological horror and supernatural thriller,  it follows a land surveyor on an assignment to measure an ancient forest for a developer but soon loses his reason in a supernatural environment that has its own plans.
