First look at director Blake Ridder's psychological thriller.

One of the many filmmakers who got to work during the lockdown of 2020 was Blake Ridder. Along with a raft of shorts - including Coronavirus, one of the first films to address the crisis - Ridder made his feature directorial debut with psychological thriller Help.

The film stars Emily Redpath as a young woman who visits a friend (Sarah Alexandra Marks) in rural England in the aftermath of a breakup, only for a series of revelations to emerge over the course of a fraught weekend. Louis James and singer Duncan James also star.

Speaking of his feature debut, Ridder says "It still hasn’t quite sunk in yet that we made a film during a lockdown two months ago, and now it’s ready for release. Not only that, it’s also getting so much love from the festivals, it’s a great feeling. I can’t wait for everyone to see this. The film explores human relationships in its rawest form."

Help is set for a summer 2021 release.

Check out the trailer and poster below.



The official synopsis reads:

HELP follows Grace, who after a painful break up visits her friend Liv who is living in the idyllic English countryside with her boyfriend Edward and his dog Polly. The trio start the weekend in high spirits but dark revelations soon cascade the weekend into chaos.
