Watch Atmospheric New Clip For Ruth Paxton’s A Banquet

The saying ‘A picture paints a thousand words’, you could for this new atmospheric clip for Ruth Paxton‘s unsettling psychological chiller A Banquet. 

In four week’s time Signature Entertainment will bring this indie psychological thriller to UK cinemas. Today they tease with a new clip that may not have dialogue, the sense of dread is near tangible.

The film stars Sienna Guillory as Holly a woman radically tested by her teenage daughter who experiences a profound enlightenment. She insists her body is no longer hers but to a higher power and she refuses to eat loosing no weight in the process.

Could this be the profound experience that changes Holly’s daughter (played by Jessica Alexander)? Ominous, chilling and we  want to see more!
