Made on a microbudget with support from South West Screen’s iFeatures scheme, ITDH is a striking debut from director Alastair Siddons.
The engagingly bolshy Jessica Barden (Tamara Drewe’s gobby teen) stars as Marie, who’s consumed with guilt when a boy she’s babysitting dies.
Part kitchen sink-er, part pseudo-ghost story, this has a firm grasp on the genres it casually straddles, with creepy sound design fostering a dreamy, portentous mood.
Despite slack pacing, the final twist is so good comparisons with The Sixth Sense aren’t out of the question. 3/5
