It is 1665, and the plague sweeps across England leaving panic and desperation in its wake. The righteous Judge Moorcroft scourers the land for the witches to blame and finds Grace's mother, Jane. Caught between confessing to a crime she is not guilty of or seeing her daughter suffer the town’s condemnation, Jane chooses to lie and pay the ultimate sacrifice.

Twenty years later, the plague is back and so is Judge Moorcroft, and now it is Grace’s turn, newly a mother herself, to choose between truth and family. Her determination is strong, but her body and mind are fragile, and it all begins to unravel as starvation and dehydration bring the judge’s relentless accusations of devilry to life.

It's the latest film from multiple award-winning writer/director, Neil Marshall (GAME OF THRONES, WESTWORLD). This marks a dramatic return to the horror genre in which he first made his name with the cult classics DOG SOLDIERS and THE DESCENT. The film was recently screened at Fantasia International Film Festival's Opening Night.
