Sarah Snook is stuck in a twisted game of hide and seek with the girl she thought she knew.
The “Succession” actress helms Daina Reid’s feature debut “Run Rabbit Run,” which premiered at 2023 Sundance. Snook plays Sarah, a mother and fertility doctor whose own daughter Mia’s behavior becomes increasingly unhinged on her seventh birthday. A surprise pet bunny gift unlocks Mia’s (Lily Latorre) memories of a supposed past life and sends Sarah down a rabbit hole of horror.
Damon Herriman and Greta Scacchi also star.
Director Reid has previously directed episodes of “The Shining Girls” and “The Handmaid’s Tale,” both featuring Elisabeth Moss, who was once attached to “Run Rabbit Run.” The screenplay is written by Australian novelist Hannah Kent, with an original idea developed by Carver Films. Carver’s Anna McLeish and Sarah Shaw are producing, with Snook producing with director Reid. Independent studio XYZ Films financed the film with Screen Australia and will handle international sales, with Netflix having global rights to Sundance.
Lead actress Snook previously collaborated with director Reid on the limited series “The Secret River.” IndieWire’s Ryan Lattanzio compared “Run Rabbit Run” to “The Babadook” and “Relic,” among other traumatic horror movies.
“[‘Run Rabbit Run’] largely tears from the book of games of similar recent horror titles about grief- and trauma-ridden mothers watching supernatural events that confront them with their strained relationships with their own mothers and children,” Lattanzio wrote. “At the end of the day, ‘Rabbit Run’ is a pile of mundane horror tropes… The saving grace that makes ‘Rabbit’ perhaps worth watching is a slovenly Sarah Snook, right in the middle of it. , well, ‘Babadook’ and ‘Black Swan’ and even ‘Repulsion’ territory in the film’s latest jetdown, but the fact that these are reference points suggests the film’s banality and missing original pieces.
While ‘Run Rabbit Run’ is the first film to debut after Snook’s turn in ‘Succession’, the actress is also set to star in upcoming film ‘The Beanie Bubble’ alongside Elizabeth Banks, Zach Galifianakis, Geraldine Viswanathan and Carl Clemons-Hopkins. about the brand that took over plush collectibles.
