Having impressed in Hunger and Vikings, Belfast actor KAREN HASSAN turns up the heat with Cellar Door, a bad trip nightmare of a drama that Messrs. Lynch and Cronenberg would be proud of. Don’t be surprised if an IFTA ensues…
It depends on the state of your romance, but Cellar Door probably isn’t your archetypal date night movie.
“If somebody swipes you on Tinder and says, ‘There’s this really sweet film I’d like to take you to’, don’t go!” laughs Karen Hassan who plays Aidie, a young girl who awakens to find herself in a Magdalene Laundry. Given that she’s not aware of having been pregnant or giving birth, it’s all a bit of a puzzle.
The film flits from one seemingly disparate nightmarish scene to another at such a furious pace that my head was spinning almost as furiously as Linda Blair’s in The Exorcist.
