Parenthood becomes perilous again in THE LULLABY, the latest genre outing from veteran South African director Darrell James Roodt. It’s coming next month; read on for the details, trailer and poster.

Uncork’d Entertainment releases THE LULLABY to select theaters and VOD March 2. Scripted by Tarryn-Tanille Prinsloo, it’s unrelated to Roodt’s 2008 feature LULLABY (a crime thriller starring Melissa Leo) and stars Reine Swart, Deànré Reiners, Thandi Puren, Brandon Auret, and Dorothy-Ann Gould. The synopsis: “Chloe [Swart] is overwhelmed by the birth of her first child. The incessant crying of her baby, the growing sense of guilt and paranoia sends her into depression. With a heightened urge to protect her son, Chloe sees danger in every situation. She starts to hear voices, the humming of a childhood lullaby and sees flashes of a strange entity around her child. Convinced that the entity is real, Chloe will do everything in her power to protect her son. Is she haunted by evil or is it just the baby blues?”
