THE ONES BELOW
Available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD September 6
THE ONES BELOW, the debut feature from writer-director David Farr (screenwriter of Hanna and “The Night Manager”), is a dark, modern fairy tale in which the lives of two couples become fatally intertwined. Kate (Clémence Poésy – Harry Potter franchise) and Justin (Stephen Campbell Moore – Burnt, The Lady in the Van) live in the upstairs flat of a London house. Thirty-something, successful and affluent, they are expecting their first baby. All appears well on the surface though Kate harbors deep-rooted fears about her fitness to be a mother and her ability to love her child. One day, another couple, Jon (David Morrissey – “The Walking Dead,” The Reaping) and Theresa (Laura Birn – Purge, Pearls and Pigs), moves in to the empty apartment below. They are also expecting a baby and, in stark contrast to Kate, Theresa is full of joy at the prospect of imminent motherhood. Pregnancy brings the women together in a blossoming friendship as Kate becomes entranced by Theresa’s unquestioning celebration of her family-to-be. Everything changes one night at a dinner party in Kate and Justin’s flat. Kate begins to sense that all is not as it seems with the couple below. Then a tragic accident throws the couples into a nightmare and a reign of psychological terror begins.
