IFC Midnight dropped the official trailer for Hatching (Pahanhautoja), the Finnish body horror film starring Jani Volanen, Reino Nordin, Saija Lentonen, Siiri Solalinna and Sophia Heikkilä set to premiere at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival.
Directed by Hanna Bergholm, the film will open in theaters and VOD on April 29, 2022.
In Hatching, 12-year-old gymnast, Tinja (Siiri Solalinna), is desperate to please her image-obsessed mother, whose popular blog ‘Lovely Everyday Life’ presents their family’s idyllic existence as manicured suburban perfection. One day, after finding a wounded bird in the woods, Tinja brings its strange egg home, nestles it in her bed, and nurtures it until it hatches. The creature that emerges becomes her closest friend and a living nightmare, plunging Tinja beneath the impeccable veneer into a twisted reality that her mother refuses to see.
