Howard J Ford and his brother Jon have a rich history of scaring audiences. The Dead and The Dead 2: India both delivered imaginative, unusual takes on the zombie apolcaypse genre, travelling to places not typically seen overrun by undead hordes.
With Never Let Go, Howard goes solo for the first time (although brother Jon contributes aerial photography). But, this Taken with a female twist maintains the high levels of suspense for which the Ford boys are well known. A multi award-winning thriller, it stars Angela Dixon as a single mother forced into a desperate race against time to find her missing daughter in Morocco.
Brimming with surprises, kinetic action and a ferocious central performance from Dixon as the unstoppable mother with a particular set of skills, Never Let Go dives into the action from the off and does not slacken the pace for 90 breathless minutes.
Or in the words of director Ford, “‘I want to take audiences on a very believable but nerve shredding journey that not only throws them into the visceral plight that is the worst fear of parents everywhere, but also gets to their heart every step of the way.”
Never Let Go received its world premiere at FrightFest 2015 and won Best Independent Feature at the 2016 National Film Awards and Best Director, Best Actress and Best Film at the Artemis Women-In-Action Film festival, LA.
The film comes to select UK cinemas and digital download from October 3rd and DVD from October 10th.
