Grimmfest, Manchester’s Festival of Horror, Cult and Fantastic Film is back; bigger, bolder, and bloodier than ever before.

For Mary, the joy of her infant son Adam’s birth is overshadowed by the devastating stillborn death of his twin brother Thomas. Concerned husband Jack relocates them to a spacious new home in secluded suburbia while Mary makes fast friends with their neighbor Rachel. But fresh faces, new surroundings, and even post-partum medication can’t spin Mary’s haunted motherhood mindset off its deepening descent into horrifying depression. Soon she’s convinced that an otherworldly evil wants to claim her remaining baby for its own…

Still / Born: A woman start to mentally unwind as someone or something takes an interest in her newborn child. Still / Born Review

From the off, there is nothing that comes across as too original about Brandon Christensen’s Still/Born. The concept at its heart deals with the horrors of parenthood (namely motherhood) that has been mined across the horror genre (everything from Rosemary’s Baby to the Paranormal Activity films address it in someway), so if such a concept is being explored once again, you better hope it’s got some invention to go along with it.
