A young couple’s dream of starting a family shatters as they descend into the depths of paranoia and must struggle to survive an evil presence that wants nothing more than their very own lives.
Producer/director Rob Heydon made his decision to join the team based on the strength of the script. “I just couldn’t stop reading it. I kept turning the pages, wanting to find out what happens next. Donald Martin mastered the twists, the turns and the surprises. I was in.”
Heydon describes Isabelle “as a psychological thriller about a husband and wife who lose a child, and must deal with the wife’s psychological crisis that follows; it’s about a marriage falling apart, and it’s also about the mother and daughter next door and their impact on the couple.”
Even with its mysterious occurrences, the filmmakers agree that Isabelle is at its core a meditation on grieving and longing. “Take away the scares, the shadows, the sounds, and this is about a married couple dealing with the loss of their unborn child,” offers Heydon
