Iris is an imaginative young girl on vacation in Maine, spending a lot of time by herself when her parents begin fighting. In their strange rental house, Iris finds an old trunk that can’t be opened and starts to see evidence of a terrifying ghost story all around her. But is it all in her head? Or is it in the box?
” …there’s nothing in the child’s performance to make us fear for her and nothing in the way the film was written, shot and edited builds suspense or hints at terror. With no jolts, no frights, zero effects and zero flair for shooting a sequence, scene or single take in a way that rattles or unnerves the viewer, Bride in the Box runs up against Big Question. Why did they bother?” 1 out of 4, Movie Nation
“A pretty unusual horror movie as it’s extremely economic in its use of scare tactics, and completely lacking in terms of spectacle – and that’s what makes it so interesting, as it relies on the strength of its story, and especially the parts of the story that aren’t clearly laid out, and a well thought-through structure keeps the viewer guessing to the end.” Search My Trash
The Bride in the Box will be released on Digital by Random Media on July 26, 2022.
