Don't Let Him In

What if you invited a serial killer on holiday by mistake?

Handsome, charming and arrogant, Tristan has picked up Mandy on a one-night stand. The love-struck girl invites him to a rural getaway with her brother Calvin and his girlfriend Paige, an emergency room nurse.

But Tristan has secrets. He needs to get out of the city. And suspicions grow when a local police officer warns the group that a sadistic serial killer is plaguing the area.

Dubbed the Tree Surgeon, this brutal psychopath ritualistically slaughters his victims, hanging their severed body parts in the trees as unholy offerings.

That night a delirious, half-dead stranger arrives, his stomach slashed open. Paige saves his life – but is Shawn the innocent hitchhiker he claims?

Doubts begin to breed. Then the killings begin, and suspicion spirals into paranoia, climaxing in a shocking revelation and a punishing battle for survival as the Tree Surgeon drags his final traumatized victim into his lair…

DON’T LET HIM IN is a nerve-bludgeoning horror thriller which combines slow-burning suspense with visceral, graphic shock.

The film is the debut feature from Coldwood Productions, a production label formed in 2008 by producer-director Kelly Smith, who recently worked as Script Consultant on FACES IN THE CROWD, a thriller from Forecast Pictures starring Milla Jovovich and Julian McMahon.

The cast includes Sophie Linfield (FOOTBALL FACTORY), Sam Hazeldine (THE WOLFMAN) and Gordon Alexander (SUCKER PUNCH).
