Kin Dread is a 2021 psychological thriller about a young sound designer with retrograde amnesia who discovers a string of murders in his building but when the carnage triggers memories of his mysterious past, he races to stop the killer before losing those he loves most.

Directed, co-produced and edited by Adrian Leon from a screenplay co-written with Steven Clayton. Also produced by Erik Gloege. Executive produced by David Henningsen, Amy Meyer-Terry and Curtis Terry.


The Nemesis production stars Ethan Smart, Patrick Cupo, Elinor Gunn, Kevin Owyang, Corinna Jones/Harney, Isaiah Dell, Kellie Christensen and Curtis David.


Kin Dread might owe to some of the great thrillers of yesteryear, but that shouldn’t be taken as a flaw. Leon takes what works about those classic films and uses them to craft something original and engaging. The plot is tightly wound, and the impressive cast keeps the mystery shrouded for as long as possible.” 9.5/10, Film Threat


“The climax features a genuinely unexpected twist however I’m not sure that Kin Dread builds itself clearly enough to make that ultimate payoff feel as impactful as it could’ve been. It will, however, probably make you want to go back and re-watch and Kin Dread does keep itself interesting; at no point feeling like it was dragging, making it an overall very enjoyable experience.” Outside the Spotlight
