The relationship turns threatening, leaving the couple fearful for their well-being. With an ending that leaves an unsettling feeling of despair, this psychological battle of wills with the tenants in the apartment downstairs continuously grasps the tension and tone, keeping suspense at an all-time high.
A thriller that dwells in the deepest of fears, THE ONES BELOW is “delicious and elegant nastiness” (The Guardian).

THE ONES BELOW, the debut feature from writer-director David Farr (screenwriter of Hanna and “The Night Manager”), is a dark, modern fairy tale in which the lives of two couples become fatally intertwined. Kate (Clémence Poésy – Harry Potter franchise) and Justin (Stephen Campbell Moore – Burnt, The Lady in the Van) live in the upstairs flat of a London house. Thirty-something, successful and affluent, they are expecting their first baby. All appears well on the surface though Kate harbors deep-rooted fears about her fitness to be a mother and her ability to love her child. One day, another couple, Jon (David Morrissey – “The Walking Dead,” The Reaping) and Theresa (Laura Birn – Purge, Pearls and Pigs), move in to the empty apartment below. They are also expecting a baby and, in stark contrast to Kate, Theresa is full of joy at the prospect of imminent motherhood. Pregnancy brings the women together in a blossoming friendship as Kate becomes entranced by Theresa’s unquestioning celebration of her family-to-be. Everything changes one night at a dinner party in Kate and Justin’s flat. Kate begins to sense that all is not as it seems with the couple below. Then a tragic accident throws the couples into a nightmare and a reign of psychological terror begins.
