I am a sucker for maternal thrillers. From ’90s popcorn thrillers like The Hand That Rocks The Cradle to the brutal extremism of Inside, crazy mothers hit a soft spot for me and part of it may be due to the fact that the motivation is right there. There’s no need for an extensive backstory when the loss of a child is involved. The audience gets it. While the premise of The Ones Below may sound like a familiar trope, writer/director David Farr knows how to utilize his unique style to provide a slow burn of a thriller that will keep the anxiety levels high.
Kate (Clemence Poesy) and Justin (Stephen Campbell Moore) are 18 weeks into their pregnancy when they get neighbors in the form of Jon (David Morrissey) and Theresa (Laura Birn) who are also expecting. Theresa is persistent on spending time with Kate, with a smile »

With the release of The Tunnel, it had a big job to do. Being the remake of The Bridge, it had to make it out of the Nordic Noir show’s shadow. With the first season it arguable managed to do this, but can it do it again with The Tunnel: Sabotage?
The Tunnel: Sabotage brings together the team of Elise Wassermann (Clémence Poésy) and Karl Roebuck (Stephen Dillane) as they investigate the disappearance of a husband and wife in the Channel Tunnel which leaves a small child abandoned. When a plane travelling from Paris to the UK is seemingly brought down by remote control hacking though, they find themselves pulled into an even darker case which will put them even more danger.

Tenser and queasier than your average thriller, The Ones Below finds two soon-to-be parents living in a flat above another expecting couple, an improbable scenario that turns even more improbably tragic and horrific. Parenthood is both a blessing and a curse, and writer-director David Farr captures both sides, stretching the creepy-neighbor tension to its breaking point throughout. It’s almost exhausting watching the high-strung domestic drama play out, with nary a moment of respite to cling onto, but Farr’s evocative use of lighting, editing and sound can at times provide something else to ponder should moments of the story prove too intense to stomach.
Harry Potter alum Clémence Poésy plays Kate, the female half of the upstairs, decidedly normal couple in this London-set neighborly standoff. She and her journalist husband Justin (Stephen Campbell Moore) have just moved into their second-floor flat in anticipation of the arrival of their first child, »

New parents get potentially deadly new neighbors in The Ones Below, the feature film directorial debut of David Farr (AMC’s The Night Manager, Hanna). With The Ones Below coming out in theaters and on VOD today, we recently caught up with Farr, who discussed working with David Morrissey (The Governor on The Walking Dead), the inspiration behind his new film, and much more.
David, thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, and congratulations on your fantastic new film, The Ones Below. How did you come up with the idea for your latest movie? Is this is a story that you’ve been thinking about for a long time?

The Ones Below sounds like a serious horror film, and though it wants to call itself a thriller, it’s really something without a comfortable genre home… but, it has a bit in common with horror theories.
The story revolves around Kate (Clémence Poésy) and Justin (Stephen Campbell Moore), who are expecting a baby. They’re a more or less standard couple, who are fairly well off, and their life is offered up as “that which you can relate to.” The ins and outs of their existence moves along a familiar track.
Their one problem is that they live in a two-story flat, and new people move in downstairs. Thus, the ones below. Jon (David Morrissey) and Teresa (Laura Birn) are said ones below, and they are expecting as well.
As we ease into the film, and the general discomfort of living in a situation where you have to see »

Properly moody, The Ones Below brews up a strong cup of neighborly paranoia. It's a familiar story. Kate (Clémence Poésy) and Justin (Stephen Campbell Moore) live in a lovely flat in a lovely building in a lovely London suburb. Kate is pregnant and they couldn't be happier. They live upstairs and are curious about their new downstairs neighbors, Theresa (Laura Birn) and Jon (David Morrissey). Their impressions are generally positive as far as the somewhat tremulous Theresa is concerned. She too is pregnant, though she is quite anxious about it, since she and her husband have already suffered through unsuccessful attempts to have children. Kate and Justin invite the couple upstairs for a meal, where they finally meet the bombastic Jon. Theresa starts sneaking alcohol,...

Perhaps aware that the comparisons to “Rosemary’s Baby” will arrive from the start, playwright and theatre director David Farr, making his feature film debut, acknowledges the allusions to Roman Polanski’s picture from the first frames. Our first look of Clémence Poésy in the film bears a similar fragility to Mia Farrow, and the score by […]

Never has breastfeeding looked so sinister. In our exclusive clip from The Ones Below, exhausted new mother Clémence Poésy asks her downstairs neighbor Laura Birn to watch her infant son. But it turns out that the new mother is more suspicious than exhausted, leading to a moment that sends chills down her spine. The movie builds tension slowly and deliberately. And if you've ever lived next door to someone -- anyone, really -- you'll probably be able to relate to what happens. Check the official synopsis below for more detailed information: The Ones Below is the debut feature from writer-director David Farr (screenwriter of Hanna and AMC's The Night Manager), starring the ensemble cast of Clémence Poésy, David Morrissey, Stephen Campbell Moore (Complicit, History Boys,...

"You never know your own neighbors..." Fears about your neighbors being psychos turned into a movie, oh how fun. Magnolia Pictures has debuted a new trailer for the thriller The Ones Below, about a new couple expecting their first child that learns something a bit weird is going on with the couple living below them. Clémence Poésy stars, along with a cast including David Morrissey, Stephen Campbell Moore, Laura Birn and Deborah Findlay. This film has been playing at film festivals like Tiff, London and Berlin so it can't be all that bad, but it doesn't look like that much to it from this trailer. Take a look below. Here's the latest official trailer for David Farr's The Ones Below, found direct on YouTube: A couple expecting their first child discover an an unnerving difference between themselves and the couple living in the flat below them who are also having a baby. »

Acting neighborly has deadly consequences in playwright and theater director David Farr's feature directorial debut “The Ones Below.” A contained thriller with heavy nods to Roman Polanski's "Rosemary's Baby," the movie may not reinvent the wheel, but it has lots of fun playing in a similar sandbox as the horror classic. Read More: Tiff Review: 'Rosemary's Baby'-Esque Thriller 'The Ones Below' Starring Clémence Poésy Starring Clémence Poésy, David Morrissey, Stephen Campbell Moore, and Laura Birn, the story follows a young couple, eagerly awaiting their first child, who become involved in a psychological battle of wills with the tenants in the apartment downstairs. And it's one that only intensifies when the couple below lose their own baby-to-be in a freak accident. "The Ones Below" opens on May 27th. Watch the trailer and a clip from the film below. »

David Farr’s tale of a young couple and their peculiar neighbours downstairs oozes anxiety and paranoia
This home-grown psychological chiller starts with an ultrasound image of an unborn baby’s face and a la-la-la theme which evokes Krzysztof Komeda’s lullaby from Rosemary’s Baby. The spirit of Polanski looms large as young middle-class couple Kate (Clémence Poésy) and Justin (Stephen Campbell Moore) find their expectant anxieties mirrored by the new couple in the downstairs flat, with whose barely repressed “otherness” they become inextricably, guiltily intertwined. Playwright and theatre director David Farr (who co-wrote Joe Wright’s Hanna and scripted TV’s The Night Manager) makes a solid fist of his big-screen debut as writer/director, generating some small-scale chills which are undiminished by the occasionally creaky dialogue. Cinematographer Ed Rutherford, who did such brilliant work for Joanna Hogg on Archipelago and Exhibition, uses woozy camera moves to capture »

Two neighbouring couples, both expecting a baby, go to war in this stylish psychological thriller
There is a delicious and elegant nastiness to this psychological suspense thriller from David Farr, making his feature-directing debut. It is a Polanskian nightmare of the upper middle classes, with extravagant flourishes of melodrama and staginess.
The London it shows us is a but like that in Roman Polanski’s 1965 film Repulsion, and the chamber music of polite dysfunction is a little like Polanski’s 2011 version of Yasmina Reza’s play Carnage. We witness an intimately horrible and psychotic duel between two well-heeled couples: one living in the flat below the other. Justin (Stephen Campbell Moore) and Kate (Clémence Poésy) are laid-back friendly professionals; Teresa (Laura Birn) and Jon (David Morrissey) are conservative and uptight. But they have one important thing in common: both Teresa and Kate are pregnant. The unacknowledged competition and resentment lead to a convulsion of fear. »
