The Sabnock

/ / (2023)

Writer-director

A family of exorcists and healers live off grid in a remote farmhouse, practising folk magic to visitors from near and far. But are the younger generation as committed to the old ways as they seem?

A gothic thriller, drawing inspiration from folk-horror films as Ari Aster’s Midsommar and Robin Hardy’s The Wicker Man, and the intensity and intimacy of Sally Wainwright’s Happy Valley.

A completed 25-minute short film script, which will double as the pilot episode of a proposed 5 x 50-minute limited series, currently a work in progress. Get in touch if you’re interested in reading more.
