Waif-like internationally renowned cellist Tilly feels the siren call of a Welsh village – somewhere she’s never even heard of – which was once the home of a little girl, Carys, who went missing 23 years ago.
But when Tilly and her best pal Hal (Joel Fry) arrive in Penllynith, they find a community of Royston Vasey weirdness, populated by shifty-looking, hostile locals who want the pair of them simply to shut up and get out of town.
Kris Mrksa’s creepy, atmospheric supernatural thriller (OK, let’s just call it a ghost story, shall we?) is deliciously weird and full of good old-fashioned jumpy moments, heightened by a fractured, evocative soundscape of ragged breaths and strange moans.
Tilly (Lydia Wilson) is holed up in a creepy mansion (of course she is!), a place she’s convinced she’s been to before. But when? And why? Maybe shelves of tape recordings offer a clue?
Matilda tries to convince PC Graves that toddler Carys Howell must have been kept in the basement of Dean House. Graves is dismissive, but later wonders whether there's something to the suggestion. Dean House grows increasingly unsettling, with mysterious occurrences and symbols appearing and a sinister presence that draws Matilda towards a room with a blue door. Matilda and Hal's relationship becomes increasingly strained as Hal urges her to leave, but she remains intent on finding out the truth about her identity. Psychological thriller, starring Lydia Wilson and Joel Fry.
