Usually art imitates life, but in the new horror film Don't Leave Home, life could be imitating art with deadly results. Ahead of its September theatrical and VOD release from Cranked Up Films (following its premiere last year at SXSW), we've been provided with exclusive images from Don't Leave Home that give us a better look at the film's foreboding atmosphere.

You can view our exclusive set of images below, and keep an eye out for Don't Leave Home when it's released in theaters and VOD platforms in the US beginning September 14th. Written and directed by Michael Tully, Don't Leave Home stars Anna Margaret Hollyman, Lalor Roddy, Helena Bereen, David McSavage, and Karrie Cox.

Synopsis: "After recently unveiling her new sculptural exhibit on Irish urban legends, artist Melanie Thomas is contacted by Father Alistair Burke, a reclusive Irish priest who, legend has it, once painted the portrait of a young girl who later disappeared on the very day her image vanished from the painting. Now, summoned by Burke and his cohort to the Irish countryside for a special art commission, Melanie eagerly accepts the offer, never stopping to consider that some urban legends might be true. Being praised as “GET OUT with Catholic guilt in the Irish countryside” (Indiewire), DON’T LEAVE HOME proves that not all mysteries should be solved."
