Horror Film 'Lyle' Stars Gaby Hoffmann in a Sinister Ode to 'Rosemary's Baby' (Exclusive Video)
Something is amiss in this exclusive clip from the new horror flick Lyle, which is scheduled to premiere July 12 at Outfest in Los Angeles.
The film follows a distraught couple as they grieve the death of their daughter. Gaby Hoffmann (Girls, Obvious Child) plays Leah, a pregnant woman cut from the same cloth as Rosemary from Rosemary's Baby. Ingrid Jungermann, Rebecca Street, Kim Allen, Michael Che and Ashlie Atkinson also star.
In the above clip, Hoffmann, whose previous work includes HBO's Girls and the recent film Obvious Child, plays a worried partner and mother, as her daughter makes faces at a darkened door frame. "Honey, who are you talking to?" Leah asks.
She props herself up on her bed, forehead wrinkled with concern. "Lyle, stay in here."
Lyle was written and directed by Stewart Thorndike, produced by Alex Scharfman and is set to be the first of three upcoming female-focused horror films Thorndike has in the works.
Outfest runs July 10-20 in Los Angeles.
