"I love independent horror films. They're a space where creators can examine allegorical ideas and real-life traumas with unfettered control, while still providing fans the genre thrills they need. Such a wonderful intersection proves to work again in the wonderful trailer for The Unfamiliar, a British indie horror film from South African director Henk Pretorius (. The film looks chilling, appropriately slow-moving, and full of examinations of genuine pain. But it also is chock-full of batty imagery, including a jump scare that ends so predictably I seriously laughed in delight for like a whole minute. I encourage you to make The Unfamiliar‘s trailer familiar to you ASAP.

Jemima West (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) stars as a British Army doctor returning home from war, her physical scars apt for her many mental scars. As she reunites with her estranged family in her home, a series of paranormal occurrences start ravaging her brain and body, occurrences that her husband Christopher Dane (Doctor Who) insist are manifestations of her PTSD. Will a family vacation to Hawaii help soothe her? Or exacerbate the horrors? And most importantly — did you react as loudly as I did to the "candle jump scare" as I did? Goodness, I hope so…."
