Headed your way this July is the psychological horror-thriller Mother, May, I? starring Kyle Gallner (Smile, Dinner In America), Holland Roden (“Teen Wolf”), and Chris Mulkey (Twin Peaks).
This spine-chilling film is the debut feature of writer-director Laurence Vannicell, who developed the film along with Daisy Long, who choreographed the supernatural scenes.
In this mind-bending film, “Emmett wants to clean and flip his recently deceased mother’s house: get in, get out, and avoid any trauma still lingering from when she abandoned him as a young child. Anya, his fiancé, see’s this as an opportunity to finally force Emmett to deal with his trauma because she believes it is preventing him from being the partner she needs. So she convinces him to take mushrooms to get him to let go. But something strange happens while they’re tripping: she starts behaving like his mother. The next morning he wakes up sober, but she still won’t drop the act… Anya loves playing games – is this her taking it too far? Or did his mother’s spirit somehow possess her?”
Mother, May, I? comes to theaters and debuts on VOD on July 21, 2023, from Dark Sky Films.
