PRESENTS LET US IN
Samuel Goldwyn Films will release the family sci-fi / thriller film LET US IN On Digital and On Demand July 2, 2021.
LET US IN stars Makenzie Moss (“The Unicorn,” Do You Believe?), Sadie Stanley (The Sleepover, “Dead To Me”), Mackenzie Ziegler (20.6 million TikTok followers, “Dance Moms”), Siena Agudong (Upside-Down Magic, Alex & Me), O’Neill Monahan (“The Middle.” “General Hospital”) and Tobin Bell (Saw franchise). The film was directed by Craig Moss (Bad Ass, Bad Ass 2) who co-wrote the film alongside Joe Callero, making his feature screenwriting debut.
SYNOPSIS: A spirited twelve-year-old girl and her best friend start investigating the sudden disappearances of several missing teens in their small town. Realizing there might be something deeper happening, Emily and Christopher might be up against forces they can’t even imagine.
Inspired by a very popular online urban legend, we created a story that brought back many of the elements of the wonderful Family Sci-Fi Adventure Thrillers of the 80’s and 90’s.
In addition, we cast the movie with some of the most talented young actors around including Makenzie Moss, Sadie Stanley, O’Neill Monahan, Siena Agudong, Makenzie Ziegler along with the master of horror/thriller himself Tobin Bell. All of these great actors playing these interesting characters who reside in this fictitious small town which became a character onto itself. And although the town is small, we wanted to make this location larger than life as we shot the film on a wide lens giving the audience not only packed frames full of information but heightening the suspenseful moments throughout the film.
Also, having a twelve-year-old female protagonist at the center of our story was something that we haven’t seen in a long time… not to mention a twelve-year-old girl who turns into a bad ass ultimately becoming a true hero in the end. Our hope is to inspire generations of young girls to believe in themselves and to always do the right thing.
Ultimately, LET US IN sets out to be the gateway Sci-Fi Thriller for a younger audience that combines the great Family Sci-Fi Adventure Thrillers from their parent’s childhood as well as implementing a modern take on the genre… all of which things we haven’t seen in quite some time.
