London, 1974. As Britain prepares for electrical blackouts to sweep across the country, trainee nurse Val (British actress Rose Williams) arrives for her first day at the crumbling East London Royal Infirmary.
With most of the patients and staff evacuated to another hospital, Val is forced to work the night shift, finding herself in a dark, near empty building. Within these walls lies a deadly secret, forcing Val to face both her own traumatic past and deepest fears in order to confront the malevolent force that’s intent on destroying everything around her.
Featuring a breakthrough central performance from Rose Williams and a pulsing, modern soundtrack by acclaimed electronica artist Gazelle Twin and composer Max de Wardener, THE POWER channels a rich history of British chillers whilst making a new and surprising statement all its own .
Summoning the spirit of classic ghost stories such as Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black and the intense psychological atmosphere of Dario Argento’s Suspiria, THE POWER arrives to take its place as the next great British independent horror film.
THE POWER is exclusively released on SHUDDER on 8 April 2021
