Emelie

Join Indievents and Club David, Wednesday, March 9, for the South Dakota Premiere of Emelie.

Emelie is a hot new thriller which made its world premiere at the 2015 Tribecca Film Festival. It has gone on to play several other film festivals gaining rave reviews from press and audiences around the world. The film stars Sarah Bolger (Into the Badlands, Agent Carter).

The Thompsons, a loving family living in a peaceful suburb are the very definition of wholesome normalcy. But on the eve of their thirteenth wedding anniversary their usual babysitter has to cancel, leaving Dan and Joyce to call upon a new girl who seems like a dream come true to their three children: Christopher, Sally and Jacob. As the night creeps on, the kids slowly realize something is very wrong and this woman is not who she claims to be. Jacob, the eldest, must grow up quickly if he wants to save his siblings from the sinister intentions of Emelie, the disturbed woman masquerading as their babysitter.

"Though naturalistic in its style, Emelie can't help but seem supernatural—a little like folklore...It's still, however, an entirely mean little movie." -- Shock Till You Drop

"Spotlessly shot, intimately disturbing and sporting a cast of youngsters that you can really get behind, Emelie is one fright flick that's guaranteed to hit home… especially if you have kids." -- Dread Central

"the film is genuinely unsettling, tapping into any parents' worst nightmares" -- The Hollywood Reporter
