The Perished is a head trip from start to finish. A woman has an abortion is basically driven from her home by her religious mother as a result. She takes shelter at a beautiful house with a male friend and begins to be haunted by a demonic baby. Is the baby real or is it a manifestation of her guilt from the abortion? The film will keep you guessing until the very end. There are a few other surprises at the end of the film, but I won’t spoil them here.
The Perished is visually stunning, the storyline is compelling, and the special effects are top notch. Check this film out! Review by @DJ Rossstar. Information on the film below:
Following an impressive festival run, the Irish supernatural horror/thriller THE PERISHED, the second feature film from writer/director Paddy Murphy (THE THREE DONT’S), has released a new official trailer. The film will be coming out on April 7th in North America through US distribution company The Horror Collective.
THE PERISHED tells the story of a young Irish woman named Sarah Dekker (award-winning actress, Courtney McKeon) who finds herself dealing with an unwanted pregnancy, her subsequent abortion, and the consequences of a judgemental society.
MAYHEM and EVERLY director Joe Lynch hails the film, saying, “It’s like if Ken Loach remade DON’T LOOK NOW.” Meanwhile, “I got HELLRAISER vibes,” said Entertainment Focus, “and it sent shivers down my spine.”
Logline: While recovering from an abortion, a young woman is tormented by the spirits of the unborn…who seek a mother.
The film was written and directed by Paddy Murphy, who produced alongside Barry Fahy and Vachn Gill. It stars Courtney McKeon (THE THREE DON’TS), Fiach Kunz (GAME OF THRONES), Paul Fitzgerald (THE SLEEP EXPERIMENT), and Lisa Tyrrell (URBAN TRAFFIK).
