Home / Now Showing / THE SEEDING
When a lone hiker gets lost and stranded in a strange valley, he encounters a group of feral kids and a lonely young woman with a connection to them. Caught in the middle of deadly traps and violent, childish games, he’ll have to dig deep into the core of who he is to understand what the hell he has found himself in. Barnaby Clay’s assured, incredibly effective debut is the kind of nail-biter that you think about days after seeing it – a sun-drenched thriller that uses the vastness of the California desert to create a new reality that is mere miles away from what we consider civilization. Drawing out exquisitely vicious performances from the seemingly-feral boys, Clay’s hand in exploring toxic masculinity mingling with childish cruelty creates frightening results that herald the arrival of a bold new voice on the genre circuit.
