First Trailer and Poster for Irish Folklore Inspired Horror THE OTHERKIND

The Otherkind
First look at director Mary C. Russell's feature debut.

Having directed several acclaimed horror shorts, writer/director Mary C. Russell makes her feature debut with The Otherkind.

Inspired by the Irish folklore of the Selkie, the film explores sinister goings on in a sleepy lakeside town in California.

Marc Anthony Samuel, Lestonja Diaz, Rebekah Kennedy, Paris Dylan, Muneeb Rehman, Laura Dromerick, Luciana Faulhaber, Caroline O'Meara, Jeff Pride and Madonna Young-Magee star.

"When I wrote the first draft several years ago, I was inspired by the Irish folklore of the selkie," Russell says. "I decided to flip the concept and bring the story to modern times and shoot where I live in the San Bernardino Mountains. I wanted to show how multiple people can be affected by one source of information and what they do with that information, how they adapt and change, like the townspeople around the lake."

The Otherkind will hit the festival circuit later this year.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

A worn down cop tries to piece together the days prior to him waking up in the middle of nowhere. Meanwhile, a young woman is tainted by an undesirable encounter during a bonfire night with friends. Chaos seeps into a sleepy lake town as lives intertwine, making it clear that there’s something sinister, terrifying and unexplainable at play in this shapeshifting, psychological thriller.
