Director Stewart Thorndike in person for Q&A on Saturday, March 30 at 7:00 p.m.!

“After moving into a new apartment building in Brooklyn with her partner, a new mother’s grief over her toddler’s death turns into paranoia when she begins to suspect her neighbors are part of a satanic cult. Stewart Thorndike’s debut feature LYLE marks a generational shift in postpartum horror film. Like its eponymous predecessor ROSEMARY’S BABY, LYLE is a psychological horror film that offers a 21st century challenge to our societal perception of home being the safe space for women. With dark humor and razor-sharp camerawork, Thorndike takes audiences into a growing nightmare as Leah begins to question the motives of her partner, friends, and neighbors.” – Caryn Coleman
