Jacob ‘Jake’ Byrd’s visually stirring horror ADALYNN is out now on digital platforms from Summer Hill Films, LLC.
Byrd’s debut, ADALYNN follows a mother fighting postpartum depression and slipping over the edge. It becomes hard to distinguish where depression ends, and her nightmares turn real, as she and her newborn are haunted by a stalker unlike any other. ‘Adalynn’ trades in a space between horror, fantasy, ghosts, demons, the Satanic occult and dreams. Jerrod D.Britto (13 Slays Till X-Mas, The Grass is Always Greener) wrote the pic.
“It’s shocking and artfully horrific at the same time,” says Producer Mala Patil.
ADALYNN, which has been accepted into 22 festivals thus far, winning awards for Byrd as Best Director, Sydney as Best Actress, and Mala as Women Filmmaker, is described as a “darkly visionary and disturbing” piece by Summer Hill Films President, Ted Chalmers.
Adds Chalmers, “‘Adalynn’ showcases the postpartum experience real life mothers face while giving viewers an insight into their inner demons”.
“It’s quirky and strange, an art house psychological thriller with shocking twists,” says Weisman.
“I don’t want to scare you. I want to scar you,” says Jake Byrd. ” ‘Adalynn’ tells a powerful story exploring the ideas of postpartum depression, grief, fear and more, and I am excited to distribute this film through Summer Hill Films”.
