Barbara Crampton is certainly making a name for herself in horror these days, known by many for her early work in Reanimator and From Beyond, she's seeing something of a resurgence in recent years with roles in Lords of Salem, You're Next and no less than four films at Frightfest 2015 including We Are Still Here and the European premiere of Ben Cresciman's Sun Choke. This psychological chiller aims to bring horror out of the darkness and into the sunlight as a young girl (Freaks and Geeks' Sarah Hagan) undergoes an unusual recovery program for her mental health. Sun Choke will be a Discovery Screen 1 feature on Monday 29th August at 9.00pm.
As she recovers from a recent violent psychotic break, Janie (Hagan) is subjected each day to a bizarre holistic health and wellness regimen designed, and enforced, by her lifelong nanny and caretaker, Irma (Crampton). Janie begins to veer off the road to recovery when she develops an obsession with a young woman, Savannah (Lane), that Janie feels an inexplicable yet profound connection to. The obsession turns increasingly invasive, and wedges all three women into an ever-tightening, and terrifying struggle for control. Will Janie pull herself back from the precipice of insanity? Or will she go over head-first, taking anyone nearby down with her?
