THE CHILD REMAINS
An expectant couple’s intimate weekend turns to terror when they discover their secluded country inn is a haunted maternity home where unwanted infants and young mothers were murdered. Inspired by the true story of the ‘Butterbox Babies’ and their macabre chapter in Canadian history, THE CHILD REMAINS is a twisting supernatural thriller that has already won 15 Best Feature Prizes on the global festival circuit. A tribute to vintage atmospheric horror such as The Shining, Rosemary’s Baby, and The Orphanage, the film stars Cannes Best Actress winner Suzanne Clement (Mommy), Allan Hawco (Frontier), Shelley Thompson (Trailer Park Boys) and genre hero Geza Kovacs (Scanners). Written, directed and co-produced by award-winning filmmaker Michael Melski (Charlie Zone, Growing Op) and produced by Craig Cameron (The Corridor), THE CHILD REMAINS is about the evil that lurks behind the postcard. You’ll sleep like a baby.
