Son is not just another scary movie about a mysterious cult. The trailer below shows that tension is one of the most important parts of the film. This does not mean there will not be any scares, however. It appears as if there will be enough shocks and blood to satisfy any horror fan.
Written and directed by Ivan Kavanagh (The Canal, Never Grow Old), the film stars Andi Matichak (Halloween franchise, Assimilate), Emile Hirsch (The Autopsy of Jane Doe), and Luke David Blumm (The King of Staten Island).
After a mysterious group breaks into Laura’s home and attempts to abduct her eight-year-old son, David, the two of them flee town in search of safety. But soon after the failed kidnapping, David becomes extremely ill, suffering from increasing psychosis and convulsions. Following her maternal instincts, Laura commits unspeakable acts to keep him alive, but soon she must decide how far she is willing to go to save her son.
