Coming off of its World Premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival on July 25th is the twisted, creepy-crawling teaser trailer for David Keating’s Cherry Tree. In true teaser trailer fashion, Cheery Tree offers a short and sweetly disturbing look at Keating’s latest ritualistic offering, one that eyes birth and death at the hands of a centuries-old witch’s coven. While word on this one has been pretty quiet, our first look is a wicked one and I can’t wait to see more.
Written by Brendan McCarthy, Cherry Tree is about:
Faith’s world is turned upside down after she finds out that her beloved father is dying. When the mysteriously alluring Sissy Young becomes her field hockey coach, Faith finds a compassionate spirit and much-needed mother figure. Little does she know that Sissy is the head of a centuries-old witches’ coven that uses the fruit of an ancient cherry tree in a secret ritual that restores life to the dead and dying. Offering to cure her father in exchange for a child, Sissy strikes a bargain with Faith, who suddenly finds herself pregnant with a baby that’s growing at an alarming rate. But with the clock to the child’s birth ticking down and the true intention of Sissy’s plans for humanity becoming more apparent, Faith and her father must stand together in order to save both their lives.
This one stars Naomi Battrick, Patrick Gibson, Sam Hazeldine, and Leah McNamara.

It certainly looks visually appealing!
Yeah, that’s the vibe I got as well. It definitely LOOKS good, so hopefully a full trailer will give us even more to get excited about.
This comes from the same guy that made Wake Wood so I will definitely be watching. That was a neat and creepy little horror film.
Haven’t seen that one yet but definitely going to check it out after seeing this teaser.
I think it’s on Netflix.
Saw Cherry Tree at the Fantasia Film Festival. Prepare to be disappointed. There’s a reason why word has been quiet. At the Q & A at Fantasia, people were struck dumb and rendered speechless…not in a good way. Love your blog, BTW.
Thanks for the kind words, I really appreciate that! Yeah, that’s what I’m hearing about this one, unfortunately. Thanks for the heads up!
