Synopsis: Meredith Langston always longed to have children. She finally makes this happen when she adopts two young adolescent girls. However, her now idyllic world sours rapidly and dream veers to nightmare when she quickly finds that she is unable to cope with their increasingly strange behavior. Desperate, she seeks the help of two television journalists working for a local station, SOS Adoption. Unfortunately it is all for nothing, especially when the reporters discover that there is another presence in the house.
The Film: Anna and Emilie are 14 and 15. They are sisters and orphans. Hardly have they been in their new home when a strange event turns their world upside down. But what exactly has happened? Two young reporters
specializing in settling adopted children into their new homes are determined to uncover the truth. But far
from helping as they hoped, they are the ones that end up completely out of their depth.
Alternating between subjective “found-footage” and objective shots, HOSTILE chronicles the story of two
teenage girls who, suddenly and inexplicably seem to be devoid of any empathy.
"This is a brilliant addition to Fantastic Film cinema. Congratulations to the
whole team. The film is both entertaining and sinister. I can't wait to see you
all at the Festival." Mickaël Abbate director of the SAMAIN Fantastic Film Festival, Nice
