Jess Peters (writer/producer Dani Barker) is a struggling actress and live-streamer who has finally found her hook: secretly filming creepy interactions she encounters via online job listings, and using the kinks of others to fuel her streaming success. For her latest episode, she’s been hired to write the ending of a screenplay in a remote cabin. Once there, the alluring self-proclaimed screenwriter (Luke Cook, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) hands her a script in which the two of them are the main characters. This client isn’t what he seems, and even though the money is great… the real payment here could cost her life. FFF alumna documentary director Sylvia Caminer (An Affair of the Heart, 2012) makes her narrative feature debut with this arresting psychosexual thriller which has garnered a barrage of both jury and audience awards at genre festivals around the world. Anchored by a compelling performance from Barker and a playfully dangerous turn by Cook—that fans of his Lucifer Morningstar character on Sabrina have come to love—Follow Her is a dark and twisted look at the dangers of a life lived fully on social media.
