A quiet song of death is played in our exclusive excerpt from the supernatural chiller debuting today.

Vertical Entertainment is distributing THE UNFAMILIAR on digital platforms in the U.S., with Lionsgate releasing digitally in the UK September 11. Directed by Henk Pretorius from a script he wrote with Jennifer Nicole Stang, it stars Jemima West, Christopher Dane, Rebecca Hanssen, Rachel Lin and Harry McMillan-Hunt. The synopsis: “British Army doctor Elizabeth “Izzy” Cormack [West] returns from war to rekindle her relationship with her estranged family. Izzy notices numerous inexplicable activities in her house that her husband believes are due to her suffering from PTSD as a consequence of war. Izzy militantly pieces the daunting puzzle together to reveal a terrifying, invisible enemy that has infested her entire family. In a heroic attempt to save her family, she is pulled into a dark underworld in Hawaii to explore ancient mythology.”
