Synopsis: Faith’s world is turned upside down after she finds out that her beloved father is dying. When the mysteriously alluring Sissy Young becomes the village’s newest inhabitant, Faith finds a compassionate spirit and much-needed mother figure. Little does she know that Sissy is the head of a centuries-old witches’ coven that uses the fruit of an ancient cherry tree in a secret ritual that restores life to the dead and dying.
Offering to cure her father in exchange for a child, Sissy strikes a bargain with Faith, who suddenly finds herself pregnant with a baby that’s growing at an alarming rate. But with the clock to the child’s birth ticking down and the true intention of Sissy’s plans for humanity becoming more apparent, Faith and her father must stand together in order to save both their lives.
I don’t know very much about Cherry Tree except to say that it comes from David Keating and Brendan McCarthy, the director and writers that brought us the eerie Wake Wood in 2010. Cherry Tree stars Naomi Battrick and Anna Walton and was the first Irish production to open the Frightfest Horror Film Festival in London, England. I don’t have a United States release date yet but when I do I will be sure to let everyone know. Until then here’s a trailer and a poster for your viewing enjoyment. Take care…and stay scared.
