SYNOPSIS

Rebecca Faraway fears she might be out of her depth. As a rookie detective struggling to find acceptance in a police department defined by a culture of bullying and intolerance, things go from bad to worse when the chief suspect in a series of brutal ritualistic murders takes a personal interest in her. A game of cat and mouse ensues which sees Rebecca's grasp on reality beginning to spiral out of control, leading to a terrifying climax where she needs to fight for her sanity, her life and maybe even her soul. Set in a bleak and cynical post-2016 London, Charismata combines a tense, fast moving police thriller reminiscent of Fincher's "Se7en" with a nightmarish, paranoia-infused psychological horror story which tips its hat to Polanski's classic Apartment Trilogy: "Repulsion", "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Tenant".
