Psychological Thriller REUNION Set For Digital Release From 101 Films

Julia Ormond (Legends Of The FallSabrinaThe Walking Dead: World Beyond) gives a powerhouse performance in haunting psychological thriller Reunion from award-winning director Jake Mahaffy (Free In DeedWellness).  After wowing horror festival audiences and drawing comparisons to family-based horrors such as HereditaryRelic and The Babadook, the film is set for its UK premiere on digital from 101 Films this March.

When a heavily pregnant woman returns home to give birth in the bosom of her family, after years away, she discovers that families can be a nightmare, as she uncovers dark secrets from her troubled childhood. 

Ormand plays matriarch Ivy, who enjoys a strange, detached relationship with adult daughter and mum-to-be Ellie (Emma Draper –­ This Town). After a long time apart, the pair are thrown together when Ellie arrives at her recently deceased grandparents’ family home, ahead of the birth, to help Ivy with the clearance. Ellie’s wheelchair-bound dad Jack (John Bach  The Lord Of The Rings The Two Towers and The Return Of The King) is also rattling the walls in the creepy old house. 

Once home, the relationship between mother and daughter becomes further strained and Ellie starts to experience strange occurrences and disturbing dreams about her long-dead sister Cara. 

As her life becomes increasingly fraught, Ellie must face her demons and the horrific truth about her past. 

A family reunion can be hell…

Reunion is produced by Ainsley Gardiner (The Breaker Upperers, Boy), Georgina Conder (The Breaker Upperers, She Shears), Mike S Ryan (Junebug, Free in Deed) and Nadia Maxwell (Human Traces), under Miss Conception Films, Greyshack Films and Overactive Imagination. The film is made in association with the New Zealand Film Commission, Chicago-based MPI Media Group and Water’s End Productions with additional support from Department of Post. The film will be distributed in New Zealand and Australia by Rialto and represented internationally by MPI Media Group.

This chilling, modern, gothic thriller is available on digital from 22nd March 2021.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
