Lizzy Caplan (CASTLE ROCK’s Annie Wilkes) stars in the childhood-terror film.

Lionsgate has announced a July 21 release exclusively in theaters for COBWEB, directed by Samuel Bodin from a script by Chris Thomas Devlin. The cast also includes Woody Norman, Antony Starr and Cleopatra Coleman (INFINITY POOL); the synopsis: “Eight-year-old Peter [Norman] is plagued by a mysterious, constant tap, tap from inside his bedroom wall–a tapping that his parents [Caplan and Starr] insist is all in his imagination. As Peter’s fear intensifies, he believes that his parents could be hiding a terrible, dangerous secret and questions their trust. And for a child, what could be more frightening than that?”
