WITH EMMY AWARD-WINNING LEAD ACTRESS JULIA ORMOND
A pregnant woman returns to her recently-deceased grandparents’ old family home to spend time with her estranged mother. What begins as a tenuous reunion slowly turns terrifying.
A psychological thriller that preys upon perception, Reunion sees veteran actress Julia Ormond deliver a tour-de-force performance of threateningly quiet intensity and features a twisty narrative that will burrow itself into the darkest corners of your mind.
“MAHAFFY EXPERTLY BLENDS IMPRESSIVE EFFECTS AND ENGAGING VISUALS—KALEIDOSCOPIC SHOTS, GRAINY HOME VIDEOS, CREEPY PROJECTOR SLIDES, MICROSCOPIC CLOSEUPS, AND VARIOUS SUBSTANCES DISSOLVING IN WATER—TO AMPLIFY THE ATMOSPHERE WITHOUT DISTRACTING FROM THE NARRATIVE.”
– MODERN HORRORS
“THE PERFORMANCES FROM THESE TWO ACTRESSES ARE FANTASTIC. YOU CAN CUT THE TENSION WITH A KNIFE. AND THAT’S JUST IN THE FIRST SCENE. 90 MINUTES LATER, YOU WILL NEED A CHAINSAW.”
– DAILY DEAD
“REUNION IS THE KIND OF INTIMATE FAMILIAL HORROR THAT RESONATES IN ANY ERA. IT PAIRS WELL WITH CONTEMPORARIES LIKE ARI ASTER’S HEREDITARY, JENNIFER KENT’S THE BABADOOK, AND NATALIE ERIKA JAMES’ RELIC. IT’S INCISIVE, OBSERVANT, AND MAKES ITS CHARACTERS EARN THEIR CATHARSIS.”
“HAS EERIE ATMOSPHERE IN SPADES”
