SYNOPSIS

When a new family moves in next door to Laura and her family, their young daughter, Megan, quickly captivates her, stirring up painful memories of her own daughter, Josie, who died several years previously. Before long, Laura's memories turn to obsession as Megan's unsettling behaviour begins to convince her of something supernatural. As Laura's determination to get to the bottom of it becomes all consuming, her family begins to fracture and the line between the extraordinary and the real becomes ever more obscured in this haunting story about a mother's love.

“Infused with the spirit of Nicolas Roeg.”

Variety

“HERE BEFORE keeps us off guard, and all the more awake because of it.”

Variety

“Stacey Gregg can wield a cut, or a piece of music, with an unnerving force, and she makes a meal out of the slow, steady accumulation of dread and fear.”

Playlist

“Filled with a vague sense of discomfort that slowly builds over the course of the proceedings, Gregg keeps the tension mounting steadily while Riseborough ensures they're grounded.”
