‘Some things weren’t meant to stay inside.’

Restraint is a 2017 American horror thriller feature film written and directed by Adam Cushman. The BYT Media production stars Caitlyn Folley, Dana Ashbrook, John Hensley and Geoffrey Rivas.


A mentally ill woman who’s been submerging her violent impulses for years unravels after she marries a controlling older man and relocates to his suburban home…


Restraint authors a story that is beautifully filmed and depicted with a lovely attention to detail, but a story that will leave viewers emotionally raw. In this manner, the film is a bridge between classic concepts in literature and modern day horrors, one that proves that some themes are truly timeless.” Cryptic Rock
