Rose Williams (Sanditon, Reign) pulls out all the stops in a compelling, complex performance alongside Amy Beth Hayes (Black Mirror, Bridgerton) and Emma Rigby (Catlevania, Prisoners’ Wives) in this spine-tingling, terrifying horror.
January, 1974. Amid the UK blackouts, a newly trained nurse, Val (Williams), starts her first job in an old hospital in London’s East End and is instructed to cover the ‘dark shift’. Inexperienced and afraid of the dark, Val is forced to confront childhood trauma and abuse as she battles the evil entity haunting the hospital and lurking in the places that never see light.
With wounded patients in need of care, a suspected possession, and rampant racism and misogyny, can Val survive the night?
‘Smart special effects… atmospheric… impressive performance from Williams… timely ghost story… the feminist messaging truly scorches’
‘A masterclass of the contemporary feminist horror film’
