Here Before, the feature film debut of Stacey Gregg, made its World Premiere at SXSW. Now, Saban Films has acquired the psychological thriller starring Mandy, The Grudge, and Possessor, actress Andrea Riseborough.
In the film, “When a new family moves in next door, their young daughter, Megan, quickly captivates Laura, stirring up painful memories of her own daughter who died several years previously. Before long, Laura’s memories turn to obsession as Megan’s unsettling behavior begins to convince her of something supernatural. As Laura’s determination to get to the bottom of it becomes all-consuming, her family begins to fracture and the line between the extraordinary and the real becomes ever more obscured in this haunting story about a mother’s love.”
Jonjo O’Neill (“The Fall”), Martin McCann (“Calibre”), and Eileen O’Higgins (“Brooklyn”) also star in Here Before, produced by Julia Godzinskaya and Sophie Vickers for Rooks Nest. BBC Film, Pia Pressure, and Northern Ireland Screen financed the film. Executive producers include Eva Yates for BBC Film, Pia Getty and James Durrant for Pia Pressure, and Will Norton for Rooks Nest.
