From the Press Release
Superhost – Premieres September 2
Teddy and Claire are travel vloggers who run a channel called “SUPERHOST” where they travel and share their experiences in and around vacation homes – and, until recently, had become successful doing it. With a dwindling subscriber count, they find the perfect opportunity to create content that people want to see when they meet Rebecca, the host of their most recent trip. Slowly they start to realise that something isn’t right with Rebecca and, as they investigate it further, they unlock a horrifying truth. She doesn’t just want a great review, she wants something far worse. Written and directed by Brandon Christensen. Starring Sara Canning, Osric Chau, Gracie Gilliam and Barbara Crampton.
Possessor – Premieres September 3
From the visionary mind of Brandon Cronenberg (Antiviral), Possessor is a game-changing sci-fi thriller about elite, corporate assassin Tasya Vos.

As she sinks deeper into her latest assignment, Vos becomes trapped inside a mind that threatens to obliterate her. Written and directed by Brandon Cronenberg. Starring Andrea Riseborough, Christopher Abbott, Rossif Sutherland, Tuppence Middleton, Sean Bean and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
Martyrs Lane – Premieres September 9
Leah, 10, lives in a large, run-down vicarage with her parents and hostile older sister. She can’t quite work out why her mother seems distant and is fascinated by the locket she wears around her neck. At night the vicarage seems to come alive with sounds. One morning, Leah spots the locket left on the bathroom shelf. She opens it and steals what she finds inside, sparking a chain of events that will turn the sounds that she hears at night into something much more frightening. Written and directed by Ruth Platt. Starring Denise Gough, Anastasia Hille and Steven Cree.

Camille Meadows is the new girl at the prestigious Edelvine Academy for Girls.
