The Unbidden

Quentin Lee (White Frog, The People I’ve Slept With) directed from a script by Narhee Ahn (Purity). Tamlyn Tomita (Teen Wolf, The Joy Luck Club), Julia Nickson (Rambo: First Blood Part II, Half-Life), Amy Hill (50 First Dates, UnREAL) and Elizabeth Sung (Memoirs of a Geisha, Lethal Weapon 4) star as the group of friends desperate to save one of their own from her dark secret. Michelle Krusiec, Akemi Look, Kimberly-Rose Wolter and Karin Anna Cheung appear as the women’s younger selves, joined by Hayden Szeto and Jason Yee as the men at the heart of the deadly mystery.

If you’re a fan of the horror, psychological thriller, family melodrama or Asian American film genres, you’re in for a treat, not a trick,” director Quentin Lee expressed of his first horror film. “Our intention was to create a wildly original independent feature with an all Asian-American cast that aims to not only entertain with shocks and thrills, but bring on the debate about difficult emotional issues. This is a female-driven film that deals with domestic violence and the morality of retribution.”

Check out the new trailer!

SYNOPSIS — Mystery novelist Lauren Lee (Tomita) is haunted by the ghost of a tortured, bloodied man. She tries to forget the apparition’s terrifying warnings and her unstable mental state by hosting dinner with her best friends (Nickson, Sung and Hill). Each of the women has her own idea and opinion to make Lauren feel better. In the midst of a séance that Rachel believes will exorcise Lauren’s demons, a mysterious young man (Szeto) arrives brandishing a gun. He holds the women hostage in order to get to the truth of the whereabouts of his missing father.
The Unbidden is expected to premiere at film festivals this spring.

Xiaoming Yan executive produced. Producers are Charles Lei, Stanley Yung and Quentin Lee.
