Irish Halloween Folk Horror Film ‘You Are Not My Mother’ Releasing This Week

The new Halloween-set Irish folk horror film You Are Not My Mother is arriving this week, and we have the creepy trailer and a clip to get you ready.

The official synopsis: It’s the week before Halloween. Char’s bedridden mother, Angela, has mysteriously gone missing. All that remains is her abandoned car parked in the middle of a field. When Angela returns home to their North Dublin estate the following evening without explanation, it becomes clear to Char and her grandmother, Rita, that something is amiss. She might look and sound the same, but Angela’s behavior has become increasingly erratic and frightening, as if she has been replaced by a malevolent force. As Halloween approaches, a night steeped in ancient Irish myth and legend, Char must unearth the dark secrets of her family in order to uncover the truth behind her mother’s disappearance and save her, even if it means potentially losing her forever.

The film is directed by Kate Dolan, making her feature directorial debut, starring Hazel Doupe and Carolyn Bracken.

You Are Not My Mother will be released in limited theaters and on VOD platforms (watch it on Amazon Prime Video here) this Friday, March 25.

You can watch the official trailer and a clip that takes place on Halloween Night below.
