It’s no secret that Australian horror films are known for having a rather violent and cruel bent to them. From Hounds of Love to Wolf Creek, the country’s national genre cinema has quite a reputation. Writer and director Steven J. Mihaljevich is continuing that tradition with his new film Violett, which delves into the psyche of a paranoid mother.
Read the full synopsis below:
A series of strange child disappearances have left the rural town of Miles in a state of disbelief. Shadows of grief reverberate through the streets and into a silenced home, where sick mother Sonya fears unspeakable evil will soon snatch her 11-year-old daughter Violett. Disconnected from her husband, Sonya’s paranoia forms the dregs of a once troubled childhood which threatens her sanity and the things she loves most. As bizarre visions and disturbing characters from the neighborhood emerge, Sonya is about to discover more than just one grisly truth.
Watch the chilling trailer below:
Georgia Eyers, Sam Dudley, Valentina Blagojevic, Simon Lockwood, and Susan Stevenson star in the film.
Violett is currently seeking distribution.
