Starring The Descent’s Shauna Macdonald, Nails is the latest entry in the Irish horror renaissance. Dana Milgrom is a track coach, who having survived a serious car accident, finds herself almost completely paralysed and trapped inside her own body, forced to communicate via an artificial voice program. While recovering, she becomes convinced that an evil presence exists inside her hospital room and is intent on killing her. No one believes her – not even her own family, who think she’s experienced a mental breakdown. However, Dana soon realises she may not be the only target. As the hauntings become more disturbing and violent, Dana’s life is increasingly at risk – as well as the person she cares most about: her teenage daughter, Gemma.

A paralysed woman stalked in her hospital bed Dennis Bartok's terrifying new film playfully teases with references while all the time scaring you silly.
