In this slow-burn horror, a Danish woman is forced to reckon with her girlfriend’s family secrets when she moves with her to London’s Orthodox Jewish community.

Maja and Leah’s relationship starts with a romcom meet-cute. Maja, struggling with her acting career, is reading to kids in the Danish library that academic Leah is researching in. It’s love at first sight, so when Leah has an accident and is forced to move home to London, Maja’s all too keen to move with her. But the relationship quickly transforms into a worst nightmare scenario when Leah’s overbearing mother Chana, who lives in the flat below them, seems insistent on driving a wedge between the couple. Who is Chana trying to protect – Leah or herself? Bypassing traditional scares for creeping paranoia and rooted deeply in Jewish folklore, ATTACHMENT is a refreshing, queer horror film with a compelling central couple you’ll want to root for. - Grace Barber-Plentie
