Shot entirely on an iPhone camera, Unsane starring Claire Foy is a different kind of horror film. The psychological thriller follows Claire’s character Sawyer as a woman on the verge of a breakdown. Is she going crazy or is she seeing her stalker at every turn?
Sawyer unknowingly checks herself into a 24-hour hold in a psych ward where, instead of finding peace of mind, only experiences a creepier set of circumstances.
The premise of the film is as follows.
‘Sawyer believes that someone from her past is stalking her. She suddenly finds herself held in a mental institution against her will and with the belief that her stalker is close behind. However, Sawyer cannot tell if the threat is real or if it is all in her head.‘
In a new clip, you can see Claire as she tries to phone for help. However, it’s made clear immediately that help isn’t coming and that nurse, we can’t be the only ones who have an inkling that she’ll be a big part of the storyline.
This project is very different from The Crown, in which she plays the often stern Queen Elizabeth II. Foy won a SAG Award and got a Golden Globe nomination for that role.
Unsane is set to be released on March 23rd.
