Marina Antunes [Celluloid 05.08.20] horror

Directors Toby Poser and John Adams have been churning out scrappy, home-made, indie movies for a number of years. And I mean home-made. Poser and Adams are married and their daughter Zelda has appeared in all of their films and while I can't speak to the quality of their previous projects, The Deeper You Dig looks pretty great.

Poser co-stars in the film as Ivy, a mother in search of her missing daughter Echo, played by her real-life daughter Zelda. What no one realizes (yet) is that Echo is the victim of a roadside accident and Ivy and the police search for a missing girl Kurt, played by Adams, is disposing of a body and dealing with the aftermath of being responsible for someone's death.

The drama at the centre of The Deeper You Dig is fairly straight forward but I love this trailer, which feels sinister in a way I can't quite put my finger on.

It's also fantastic to see a story with a supernatural approach that doesn't go for the jump scares. Marry this with the film's very successful genre festival run last year, and it's one I'm curious to check out.

The Deeper You Dig will be available on VOD June 5.

Recommended Release: The Lodge
