In her five-star Fantastic Fest review, Emily von Seele wrote that Swallow "is a captivating film that explores gender roles and mental health in a unique way." Following its run on the festival circuit, you can soon see Carlo Mirabella-Davis' thought-provoking film for yourself, as IFC Films is bringing Swallow to select theaters and digital and VOD on March 6th, and ahead of its release, we've been provided with an unsettling new clip from the movie.

Written and directed by Carlo Mirabella-Davis, and produced by Mollye Asher and Mynette Louie, Swallow stars Haley Bennett, Austin Stowell, David Rasche, and Denis O'Hare.

You can watch the new clip from Swallow below, and read on for additional details on the film:

Synopsis: "On the surface, Hunter (Haley Bennett) appears to have it all. A newly pregnant housewife, she seems content to spend her time tending to an immaculate home and doting on her Ken-doll husband, Richie (Austin Stowell). However, as the pressure to meet her controlling in-laws and husband’s rigid expectations mounts, cracks begin to appear in her carefully created facade. Hunter develops a dangerous habit, and a dark secret from her past seeps out in the form of a disorder called pica - a condition that has her compulsively swallowing inedible, and oftentimes life-threatening, objects. A provocative and squirm-inducing psychological thriller, SWALLOW follows one woman’s unraveling as she struggles to reclaim independence in the face of an oppressive system by whatever means possible."
