Pregnancy is Hell in the modern gothic horror flick Kindred, arriving in select theaters, digital platforms, and VOD on November 6th via IFC Midnight. Give the trailer a spin and read more about the movie below.
When her boyfriend Ben suddenly dies in an accident, mother-to-be Charlotte collapses upon receiving the news. She wakes up in Ben’s family home, a crumbling old manor house in the middle of nowhere with Ben’s overbearing mother, Margaret, and his controlling stepbrother, Thomas. They are determined to care for her, at least until the baby arrives. Grief stricken and increasingly haunted by visions possibly brought on by the pregnancy, Charlotte accepts their help. But as the days go by and her visions intensify, she begins to doubt the family’s intentions and her suspicions grow that they may be trying to control her and her unborn baby.
Kindred is directed by Joe Marcantonio and stars Tamara Lawrance (The Long Song, Small Axe), BAFTA Award nominee Jack Lowden (Dunkirk, Fighting With My Family), BAFTA Award winner and Emmy nominee Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve, Harry Potter franchise).
