The Holding got its world premiere this afternoon. This brutal rural horror wasn't as straight forward as you'd expect it to be. Set in the beautiful English countryside it concerns Cassie whose husband has mysteriously disappeared and left her to run their farm with her two girls. Then a man named Aden, a guy who knows all of Cassie's secrets, arrives and all hell breaks loose. But how far would you go to protect what you value most?
Now this may read like a sort of Emmerdale but with guns and bloody violence but this piece from Susan Jacobson is a well studied dissection of madness and dark, dark family secrets. She manages to cull some solid performances from the small ensemble who deliver every kind of emotion you could think of. The injection of subtle effect sub-plots holds it above similar titles making it one to look out for when it's released on September 12th by Lions Gate Home Entertainment.
Right, lunch I think then back for the Larry Fessenden celebration.
