A New Mom Battles the Unthinkable in
Adalynn from Summer Hill Films
Los Angeles, California : Jacob ‘Jake’ Byrd’s visually stirring horror ADALYNN releases on digital platforms and DVD later this month from Summer Hill Films, LLC.
Byrd’s debut, ADLYNN follows a mother fighting postpartum depression and slipping over the edge. It becomes hard to distinguish where depression ends, and her nightmares turn real, as she and her newborn are haunted by a stalker unlike any other. ‘Adalynn’ trades in a space between horror, fantasy, ghosts, demons, the Satanic occult and dreams. Jerrod D.Britto (13 Slays Till X-Mas, The Grass is Always Greener) wrote the pic.
The film stars Sydney Carvill known for ‘Keep in the Dark’ (2022) and ‘Moon Students’ (2022), with Wade Baker of ‘Division 19’ (2017) and ‘Airliner Sky Battle’ (2020) and Janet Carter from ‘Revenge for My Mother’ (2022) and ‘Swim Instructor Nightmare’ (2022). The film is produced by Malati ‘Mala’ Patil & Jake Byrd and co-produced by filmmaking veteran Straw Weisman.
The film, also starring Sydney Carvill (Keep in the Dark), Wade Baker (Division 19), and Janet Carter (Revenge for my mother) is available in North America on VOD from Amazon, YouTube Movies, Microsoft Movies, Google Play, and Vudu. It will also be available on Amazon UK and internationally licensed through Summer Hill Entertainment.
“It’s shocking and artfully horrific at the same time,” says Producer Mala Patil.
ADLYNN, which has been accepted into 22 festivals thus far, winning awards for Byrd as Best Director, Sydney as Best Actress, and Mala as Women Filmmaker, is described as a “darkly visionary and disturbing” piece by Summer Hill Films President, Ted Chalmers.
Adds Chalmers, “‘Adalynn’ showcases the postpartum experience real life mothers face while giving viewers an insight into their inner demons”.
“It’s quirky and strange, an art house psychological thriller with shocking twists,” says Weisman.
“I don’t want to scare you. I want to scar you,” says Jake Byrd. “ ‘Adalynn’ tells a powerful story exploring the ideas of postpartum depression, grief, fear and more, and I am excited to distribute this film through Summer Hill Films”.
Summer Hill Films LLC is a U.S. distributor and international sales and licensing company that attends all the major film sales markets including EFM, Marché du Film, AFM and Hong Kong Filmart.
