Embarking on an emotional job can often pull people into a frenzied fear. That’s certainly the case for actress Olga Kurylenko‘s protagonist in the upcoming horror movie, ‘Mara.’ In anticipation of the drama’s release in theaters and On Demand and Digital HD on September 7 by Saban Films, the distributor has unveiled the trailer and poster for the thriller.
In addition to Kurylenko, ‘Mara’ also stars Javier Botet (‘It,’ ‘Slender Man,’ ‘Insidious: The Last Key‘) and Mitch Eakins (‘Glory Road,’ ‘Evil Bong’). ‘Mara’ is the feature film debut of director Clive Tonge, and was written by Jonathan Frank (‘The Tournament’).
Saban Films has released the following synopsis for ‘Mara’:
From a producer of ‘Paranormal Activity’ and ‘Insidious’ comes this shock-filled descent into fear. After a man is seemingly strangled in his bed, criminal psychologist Kate Fuller (Kurylenko) interviews the sole witness, the victim’s eight-year-old daughter, Sophie (Mackenzie Imsand). When asked to identify the killer, Sophie says, “Mara.” As Kate digs into the case, she unearths a community of people who claim to be tormented by a shadowy menace, a centuries-old demon who kills her victims as they sleep.
