Irish Horror Film, Nails, Released Nationwide This Friday, 16 June
Irish horror film, Nails, directed by Dennis Bartok will be released in Irish cinemas this Friday, 16 June.
From the producers of The Hallow and Let Us Prey—Brendan McCarthy and John McDonnell of Fantastic Films—Nails is an Irish co-production that tells the story of a paralysed woman who struggles to regain her life when she encounters a malevolent ghost in her hospital room.
Dana Milgrom is a track coach, who having survived a near-death car accident, finds herself completely paralysed and trapped inside her own body. While recovering, she becomes convinced that some evil presence exists inside her hospital room and is intent on killing her. No one believes her—not even her own family, who think she is experiencing a mental breakdown. However, Dana soon realises she may not be the only target. As the hauntings become more disturbing and violent Dana's life is increasingly at risk—as well as the person she cares most about: her teenage daughter, Gemma.
Nails received its Irish premiere at ADIFF earlier this year and stars Shauna MacDonald, Ross Noble, Steve Wall, Leah McNamara, and Richard Foster-King. The film was supported by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board.
The film will be released by Eclipse Pictures in Ireland with Kaleidoscope handling worldwide sales and UK distribution.
