Below the Fold is a 2021 American mystery thriller about two reporters searching for the truth about a disappearance years before.


Without a trace, Susie Marie Potter vanished from her home in the quiet town of Skidmore, Missouri. Ten years later two reporters uncover a harrowing new detail, which leads them on an obsessive hunt for the truth through the dark labyrinth of rural northwest Missouri…


“With all the right elements in play, it’s a genuine disappointment to say that the journey doesn’t justify the destination. I’d love to have seen Below really play to the outer limits of its potential, but ultimately, we’re left with what we’re left with. Despite its pitfalls, what works, works and it’s not altogether an unpromising debut for Scott…” Killer Horror Critic

“Despite its occasionally stilted dialogue, Below the Fold benefits immensely from its performances, especially the emotional depth brought by the two leads Sarah McGuire and David DeRock, whose palpable investment in the story alone is reason enough to watch.” Rue Morgue
