Trying to escape her broken past, Sarah O'Neill (Seána Kerslake) is building a new life on the fringes of a backwood rural town with her young son Chris (James Quinn Markey). A terrifying encounter with a mysterious neighbour shatters her fragile security, throwing Sarah into a spiralling nightmare of paranoia and mistrust, as she tries to uncover if the disturbing changes in her little boy are connected to an ominous sinkhole buried deep in the forest that borders their home.
You Are Not My Son
- The Hole in the Ground review by BG
Sarah has split from her husband and takes her son to a new place to start fresh. But after encountering a strange large hole in the ground in a forest, her boy doesn't seem to be the same as he was.... There are shades of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, but this Irish horror is quite subtle and does not rely on jump scares. It requires the viewer to decide what might be happening, and is creepy on a psychological level rather than just hitting you with jolts and gore. If you just want to sit back and be scared, you probably won't enjoy it. Can't give spoilers, but even the opening shot of Sarah's son as a distorted reflection in a Fun House Hall of mirrors has some significance later on. Also you have to question Sarah's own stability. Does her head scar have any significance too?.. etc.....
