A new dramatic venture into a frightening cult is coming as IFC Midnight prepares to unveil THE OTHER LAMB, and the info, trailer and poster can be seen past the jump.

THE OTHER LAMB will arrive in select theaters and on VOD April 3. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Malgorzata Szumowska from a script by Catherine S. McMullen, it stars Raffey Cassidy (THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER), Michiel Huisman (THE INVITATION) and Denise Gough. The synopsis: “For her entire life, the cult she was born into has been all that teenage Selah [Cassidy] has known. Along with a band of similarly cloistered young women, she lives seemingly unstuck in time, cut off from modern society in a remote forest commune presided over by a man called Shepherd [Huisman], a controlling, messiah-like figure with a frightening dark side. But when her insular world is rocked by a series of nightmarish visions and disturbing revelations, Selah begins to question everything about her existence—including her allegiance to the increasingly dangerous Shepherd.”
