For teenager Rain Burroughs (Madison Iseman, “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”), a diagnosis with schizophrenia means that every day is a struggle as she tries to figure out which of the disturbing images, harrowing voices, and traumatic feelings she experiences are real and which are all in her mind. But when Rain insists against her parents’ (Katherine Heigl and Harry Connick, Jr.) advice that the shadows and cries from her neighbor’s attic are hiding a dark secret, she enlists help from Caleb (Israel Broussard, “The Bling Ring”), the charmingly awkward new boy at school – who himself may not be real. Written and directed by Castille Landon (After We Fell, After Ever Happy), FEAR OF RAIN is a terrifying thriller that takes you inside Rain’s mind as she confronts the frightening hallucinations of her imagination to determine whether there is real horror hiding right next door.
Castille Landon began her career as an actress and is known for films like Sex Ed and Apple of My Eyes. Her first project as a writer/producer was for the television movie Workers’ Comp starring Morgan Fairchild. Albion: The Enchanted Stallion was her first project as a director. In addition, to being the writer and part of the cast as Eriu. Last year it was announced she would be directing After We Fell and After Ever Happy after the success of the After. A film based on the novel by Anna Todd.
