‘MARIONETTE’: A Twisted Psychological Thriller that Revels in Cerebral Mind Games

Who is really pulling the strings?

Los Angeles, CA – June 30, 2020 – ROCK SALT RELEASING screens gripping psychological thriller, ‘MARIONETTE’, for world sales at Virtual Cannes 2020.

From multi-award winning Dutch writer/director, Elbert van Strien (Two Eyes Staring, Forbidden Eyes) and written alongside Ben Hopkins, MARIONETTE is a new take on M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense (1999), starring Thekla Reuten (Red Sparrow, In Bruges, The American), Primetime Emmy nominee, Peter Mullan (Children of Men, Ozark, War Horse), Elijah Wolf (T2, Trainspotting), Rebecca Front (Transformers: The Last Knight, The Thick of It), and veteran actor, Bill Paterson (The Witches, Kingdom of Heaven).


“Presenting a new take on the creepy kid subgenre, MARIONETTE’s unique riff on a modern classic offers an unexpected, winding psychological thriller,” wrote Bloody Disgusting.

MARIONETTE tells the story of a child therapist, Marianne (Reuten), who moves to Scotland to start a new life after the tragic death of her husband. She begins to treat a disturbed ten-year-old boy, Manny (Elijah Wolf), who draws pictures of terrible events. But when Manny’s drawings prove to be predictions of real, future events, Marianne begins an obsessive quest for the truth that will quickly derail her life.
