With an exceptional cast that includes Alice Krige (Gretel & Hansel), Malcolm McDowell (Halloween), and a highly imaginative writer/director Charlotte Colbert, She Will is a Psychological Horror Extraordinaire. It starts nervously licking away at your brain as the images frighteningly shed layer after layer of sanity: the lead characters and, of course, yours. This is an emotional horror film of the highest caliber, Kreepsters, and deserves a look-see at all emotional costs. Keep an eye out for it in October.
The film explores the story of Veronica Ghent (Alice Krige) who after a double mastectomy, goes to a healing retreat in rural Scotland with her young nurse Desi (Kota Eberhardt). She discovers that the process of such surgery opens up questions about her very existence, leading her to start to question and confront past traumas. The two develop an unlikely bond as mysterious forces give Veronica the power to enact revenge within her dreams.
