The Irish horror film has a day to begin frightening U.S. audiences.

RLJE Films and Shudder have set March 5, 2021 as the theatrical, VOD and digital release date for SON, written and directed by Ivan Kavanagh (THE CANAL). It stars Andi Matichak (Laurie Strode’s granddaughter in the HALLOWEEN reboot), Emile Hirsch (THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE, FREAKS), Luke David Blumm, Cranston Johnson and Rocco Sisto (SCREAM FOR HELP). The synopsis: “After a mysterious group of individuals breaks into Laura’s [Matichak] home and attempts to steal her eight-year-old son, David [Blumm], the two of them flee town in search of safety. But soon after the failed kidnapping, David becomes extremely ill, suffering from increasingly sporadic psychosis and convulsions. Following her maternal instincts to save him, Laura commits unspeakable acts to keep him alive but soon, she must decide how far she is willing to go to save her son.” Look for more on SON as it nears release!
