From IFC Midnights (The Babadook) comes The Housemaid (Cô Haû Gaí), the buzzed-about terrifying new horror vision from Vietnam!
Linh (Nhung Kate), a poor, orphaned young woman, finds employment as a housemaid in a crumbling rubber plantation presided over by the emotionally fragile French officer Sebastien Laurent (Jean-Michel Richaud) in 1953 Vietnam. Soon a torrid love affair develops between the unlikely pair – a taboo romance that rouses the ghost of Laurent’s dead wife, who won’t rest until blood flows. Submerged in moody Gothic atmosphere, this stylish supernatural saga confronts the dark shadows of Vietnam’s colonial past, while delivering hair-raising chills.
Winner of the Los Angeles Film Festival’s Special Jury Prize for Acting: Nhung Kate.
