Don’t Leave Home

A film by Michael Tully

USA, 2018, 86'

After recently unveiling her new sculptural exhibit on Irish urban legends, artist Melanie Thomas is contacted by Father Alistair Burke, a reclusive Irish priest who, legend has it, once painted the portrait of a young girl who later disappeared on the very day her image vanished from the painting. Now, summoned by Burke and his cohort to the Irish countryside for a special art commission, Melanie eagerly accepts the offer, never stopping to consider that some urban legends might be true. Inspired by European horror cult classics such as “Don’t Look Now”, to whose title this films alludes. Being praised by Indiewire as «“Get Out” with Catholic guilt in the Irish countryside».
