Susan Jacobson On Tense Psych Horror "The Holding": A Slow Burning Thriller

The tense psychological thriller has Jacobson described by eyeforfilm as ‘definitely a new British talent to watch’ and stars Kierston Wareing and Vincent Regan with Lionsgate distributing.

She is a Guiding Lights Alumni and was mentored by Gillies MacKinnon (Hideous Kinkey, Regeneration). Her work has been described as ‘Elegant’ (Time Out), and ‘Hearteningly diverse in style and subject’ (The Independent). Her films have been selected by Women in Film and Television International for their worldwide showcase.

She has won critical acclaim worldwide. Most notably, her short film One Hundredth Of A Second »
