About Pod

After receiving a troubling voicemail, estranged siblings Ed and Lyla travel to their isolated family lake-house in Maine to hold an intervention on their increasingly paranoid, war veteran brother, Martin. But the situation rapidly spirals out of control when they discover the house completely ransacked and learn that Martin has constructed an elaborate and horrifying conspiracy theory surrounding a sinister entity that he believes he has trapped in the basement.

Spawned from the brilliantly disturbed mind of writer/director Mickey Keating (Ultra Violence) POD makes CABIN IN THE WOODS look like a fun weekend getaway. Complete with top notch performances from Larry Fessenden (The ABC’s OF DEATH 2, STAKELAND) and Lauren Ashley Carter (THE WOMAN, DARLING), you better take your heart medication before sitting down to watch this tense, chilling exercise in cinematic scare.
