World Premiere


| Australia | 90 MINUTES | English
Troubled psychotherapist Peter Bowers (Adrien Brody) is suffering from nightmares and eerie visions. When he uncovers the horrifying secret shared by his patients, he is put on a course that takes him back to the remote hometown he fled years ago. There in False Creek he is consumed by solving a decades-old mystery that holds the key to his strange and menacing delusions.

Writer-director Michael Petroni's spine-tingling supernatural thriller is steeped in a moody, ominous atmosphere; its foreboding stillness is punctuated by explosions of haunting imagery, all in the service of a layered and satisfying mystery story.

—Cara Cusumano
