Acting neighborly has deadly consequences in playwright and theater director David Farr‘s feature directorial debut “The Ones Below.” A contained thriller with heavy nods to Roman Polanski‘s “Rosemary’s Baby,” the movie may not reinvent the wheel, but it has lots of fun playing in a similar sandbox as the horror classic.
Starring Clémence Poésy, David Morrissey, Stephen Campbell Moore, and Laura Birn, the story follows a young couple, eagerly awaiting their first child, who become involved in a psychological battle of wills with the tenants in the apartment downstairs. And it’s one that only intensifies when the couple below lose their own baby-to-be in a freak accident.
“The Ones Below” opens on May 27th. Watch the trailer and a clip from the film below.
