SAFETY CURTAIN had its world premiere on the 9th May 2016 on Channel 4, UK.
"Theo Adams created a highly stylized ‘fake’ trailer for a non-existent movie. Including high camp elements of horror fiction and eroticism–this is the most dramatic film you’ll never see." Channel 4
“It’s brilliant, the cast clawing at their skin and hyperventilating over blancmanges, before coming together as a weird many-headed beast” LOVE Magazine
SAFETY CURTAIN is the story of a group of women trapped behind a safety curtain made of past traumas. The world goes on yet they continue to burn inside their seemingly inconspicuous house. Playing a dangerous game, they face, over and over, the damage done to them - damage caused by love, fame, infertility, loss and the male. In what turns out to be the most wicked game yet, the women must not only confront the things that have unhinged them; they must finally face themselves.
