Monday, January 29, 2024 | Exclusives, News


There are medical rather than supernatural reasons not to sleep in the chiller releasing next month.

Epic Pictures brings DOUBLE BLIND to select theaters February 9 and digital platforms February 13. Filmed completely on location in Limerick, Ireland, it was directed by award-winning Irish filmmaker Ian Hunt-Duffy from a script by Darach McGarrigle. Millie Brady, Pollyanna McIntosh (THE WOMAN, THE WALKING DEAD), Diarmuid Noyes, Akshay Kumar, Brenock O’Connor, Abby Fitz, Shonagh Marie and Frank Blake star; the synopsis: “DOUBLE BLIND begins as an experimental drug trial goes horribly wrong, and seven young test subjects must face the terrifying side effect of the drug–if you fall asleep you die. Trapped in an isolated medical facility, they must find a way to escape, and somehow manage to stay awake.”
