Based on actual events, Cradle Will Fall, the debut feature from co-directors Lars Jacobson and Amardeep Kaleka, is a terrifying ‘stalk and slash’ shocker with a very disturbing twist that combines elements of ‘The Shining’ and ‘Flowers In The Attic’. For a group of four young children, danger lurks in the one place they would naturally expect to be safe: their home. Even worse, it comes in the form of the one person they would instinctively look to for protection … their mother.
Loosely based on the true story of Andrea Yates, a Texan mother who drowned her five young children in the bath in 2001 while suffering from post partum depression, Cradle Will Fall takes the premise to ‘slasher’ movie extremes resulting in a highly suspenseful and deeply disturbing viewing experience.
Starring Colleen Porch (I Know Who Killed Me: Transformers; Starship Troopers 2) and Joel Bryant (Valkyrie; The Heartbreak Kid) as the children’s parents, the film also features a standout performance from Ridge Canipe as the young boy who is thrown into the middle of an unthinkable nightmare.
Cradle Will Fall (cert. 18) will be released on DVD (£12.99) by Momentum Pictures on 10th August 2009. To be in with a chance of winning your own copy on DVD simpy enter your details below!
