24th April 2020
The tense and original Irish sci-fi thriller SEA FEVER, written and directed by BAFTA-winning Neasa Hardiman (behind BBC triumph Happy Valley and Netflix hit Jessica Jones), has been released today on major digital platforms in Ireland and the UK including iTunes, Google Play, Sky Store, Amazon UK, Virgin Movies, Microsoft Store, Rakuten, Talk Talk and Volta. Reminiscent of cult classics The Thing and The Abyss, and given the seal of approval by horror legend Stephen King, SEA FEVER stars Hermione Corfield (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Connie Nielsen (Wonder Woman), Dougray Scott (Hitman) and Jack Hickey (Game of Thrones). Ardalan Esmaili, Olwen Fouéré, and newcomer Elie Bouakaze also feature. For marine biology student Siobhan (Hermione Corfield), it was supposed to be a research excursion with a trawler crew fishing the West Irish seas. But when they hit an unseen object and become marooned, a mysterious parasite infects their water supply. Soon the oozing force infiltrates the entire vessel and turns Siobhan’s journey into a claustrophobic fight for survival. Can they stop the mysterious water borne parasite from spreading before it’s too late? The film had its world premiere at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival in September where it was met with a strong reception. It had its Irish premiere at the Dublin International Film Festival. SEA FEVER was produced by Brendan McCarthy and John McDonnell of Dublin-based Fantastic Films with Belgium’s Frakas Productions and Sweden’s Bright Pictures.
