The thriller recently swept Portugal’s Fantasporto Film Festival, including wins for Best Picture, Best Actress, and the Audience Award. The film is being hailed an “exceptional movie” by Bloody Disgusting (4 stars).
Director/producer Caminer and actress/writer Barker will be in attendance to introduce the film premiere and participate in a Q&A afterward. The psycho-sexual thriller, which stars Barker and Luke Cook (“The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”), turns the female gaze upon the seedy underbelly of online streaming – and the danger fame-seekers face when pushing themselves and others too far.
With arresting visuals and an engrossingly lurid mystery, “Follow Her” is a nail-biting, seat-squirming, stylish suspense thriller. Struggling actress and live-streamer Jess Peters (Barker), known to her online followers as J-PEEPS, has finally found her hook: secretly filming creepy interactions she encounters via online job listings, and using the kinks of others to fuel her streaming success. For her next episode she’s been hired to write the ending of a screenplay in a remote, lavish cabin. Once there, Tom (Luke Cook), the alluring self-proclaimed screenwriter, hands her a script in which the two of them are the main characters. This client isn’t what he seems, and even though the money’s great, the real payment could cost her life.
