Frightfest 2020: Trailer & Poster for ‘The Swerve’

by Phil Wheat

With her riveting and acclaimed performance as Holly, Azura Skye effortlessly crafts a portrait of a struggling mother on the edge in writer/director Dean Kapsalis’s powerfully heart-wrenching feature debut The Swerve, which explores a week in the life of a woman on the verge in a haunting meditation on mental illness.

Having celebrated its world premiere at the 2019 Cinepocalypse Film Festival, and screened at the 2019 Panic Film Festival; winning both awards for Best Actress for Azura Skye, the film screens as part of this years Frightfest digital edition on Monday 31st August at 7pm.

Holly seems to have it all: two kids, a nice house, a good job as a teacher, and a husband with his career on the way up. But there are troubling signs that all is not right in her world. The insomnia. The medication for the insomnia. The dreams from the medication for the insomnia. The arrival of her estranged sister and a mouse invading her home don’t help either. Add the weight of a dark secret, and her already delicate balance collapses, sending her spiraling out of control.

The Swerve will also be releasing on major VOD/Digital platforms – in the US – beginning Tuesday September 22nd 2020.
