British horror film Karli, directed by Mike Clarke and Paul Gerrard, will be released later in 2021. It won the ‘BEST HORROR FILM IN PRODUCTION’ Award at Grimmfest and has been described as “Hellraiser meets Pacific Heights in a chilling new psychological horror movie.” It stars Damien Ashley (Dagenham), Jennifer K Preston (Hosts, Tribal Get Out Alive), and Isabella Percival (Closing Time).
After witnessing the brutal murder of her husband, Amanda (Jennifer K Preston) decides to start a new life with her teenage daughter Karli (Isabella Percival). They leave their family home to set up a new business in the countryside – running a picturesque Bed & Breakfast far away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Before they have even had chance to open, their lives are interrupted by the arrival of Kyle (Damien Ashley). He pleads to be given a room for one night due to his car breaking down close by. His request is accepted, but that one night turns into more. Karli notices something isn’t quiet right about their guest. He soon admits that he is on the run and that he desperately needed shelter away from those that are hunting him – a creature called The Unnamed and his terrifying horde of hunters. Is Kyle telling the truth, or is it all an elaborate scam?
