We told you about Mickey Sumner (daughter of musician Sting) heading into the horror genre with the thriller Caught over a year ago and with the passage of time has come some new stills, a poster, and more.
The film will be premiering as part of Fantasporto (February 24th – March 4th) as part of their Fantasy Film Programme. Sumner (Frances Ha, End of the Tour, The Mend) stars alongside April Pearson (Skins, Tormented, Age of Kill) Cian Barry (Dr. Foster, Nina Forever), Ruben Crow (Doctors, Austenland), David Mounfield (This is Jinsy), Aaron Davis and baby Regan Brown.
“Very excited to have our world premiere of Caught at Fantasporto,” said director Jamie Patterson (Fractured, City of Dreamers). “This is a different kind of horror film. Inspired by films of the 70’s, I wanted a gritty, raw feel to the story because there’s nothing glossy about horror. This is my idea of alien art house.”
Caught was executive produced by Robert Halmi and Jim Reeve, and produced by Christina O’Shea-Daly, Jeremy Davis and Alex Francis.
