Noise in the Middle is a 2020 American horror feature film about a father of a non-verbal autistic girl who seeks experimental therapy. Unfortunately, the father who is grieving for his dead wife unknowingly rents an Airbnb with a haunted history.
Directed by Marcus McCollum from a screenplay co-written by Glen Kannon, the Whiskey Tango Films production stars Tara Buck, John Mese, Juliette Jeffers and Tom Konkle. McCollum also produced the film with Mark Conley.
After the sudden death of his wife Sara, Richard, a grieving and emotionally ill-equipped father is left on his own to care for his severely, non-verbal autistic daughter Emmie. Before her death, Sara had arranged for Emmy to partake in an experimental therapy and rented a house near the facility where the treatments would take place. Little does Richard know the house has a haunted history.
While Richard struggles with his wife’s death he soon realizes he has no patience, skills, or even any empathy to deal with Emmie’s condition and begins to find solace in drinking and drugs. As the spirits in the house grow restless, so does the noise in Emmie’s head, awakening her psychic abilities along with Richard’s personal demons. When visions of his dead wife begin to appear, Richard is convinced she has returned to help him. But is the spirit really his wife or something more sinister sent to take them both?
Noise in the Middle will be available to watch on the Kings of Horror YouTube channel, as of October 29th 2020. On the premiere date, there will also be a live stream chat with the filmmakers and several cast members.
