The Banishing stars Jessica Brown Findlay (Brave New World, Harlots) and is directed by genre master Christopher Smith (Black Death, Severance, Triangle). It will be released in Cinemas & Digital Platforms March 26th 2021, courtesy of AMC Networks’ Shudder, in partnership with Vertigo Releasing.
Brown Findlay stars as a young woman uncovering dark secrets in her new home; Sean Harris (Red Riding, Mission: Impossible) is ghost hunter Harry Price; and John Lynch (Isolation) is a sinister ‘man of God’. Smith expertly delivers a handsomely mounted period mystery, based around the spooky real life Borley Rectory tale, that steadily builds to a satisfying climax, twanging the nerves along the way, with creepy dolls, shadowy figures, religious mania and the terror of madness. A story of isolation and a family strained to breaking point, THE BANISHING is the perfect lockdown-era chiller for fans of spine-tinglers like The Others and Rebecca.
