Earlier this year we got our first look at the British indie horror thanks to a number of new images. The Trailer might be short, it’s layered with a lot tension, atmosphere. Our protagonist is surrounded by some of the harshest locations thanks to the weather adding more dread and a perfect nightmarish setting.

When a deadly secret rots the mind of a grieving widower (Hughes), the decision to work alone on a deserted island morphs into a terrifying race to save his sanity and his life.
Widower Eric Black (Tom Hughes) attempts suicide after the suspicious death of his adulterous wife. He becomes distracted by a bizarre advertisement for a shepherd, working alone on a remote, desolate island off the west coast of Scotland. Eric grabs the chance to run away from his troubles and reflect. But the island is a psychological trap.
What appears to be the perfect wind swept escape turns into the most terrifying, unescapable nightmare.
A bump in the night morphs into a horrifying mind game, where the paranormal meets one man’s escalating madness. Haunting images of his dead wife and a mysterious hooded figure taunt Eric to the brink of insanity.
Eric needs to face his greatest fears if he has any chance of surviving and escaping the island.
