What would happen if the film Frequency and The Butterfly Effect had a baby?
Its spawn would be the new Blumhouse thriller Don’t Let Go starring Storm Reid and David Oyelowo. In Don’t Let Go, detective Jack Radcliff (Oyelowo) gets a shocking phone call from his recently-murdered niece Ashley (Reid). Working together across time, they race to solve her murder before it can happen.
The story begins when Jack receives an incoming call on his cell and Ashley’s name appears on the caller ID. Both mystified and curious, Jack answers the call and hears Ashley’s voice on the other end. It is Ashley before she was murdered — Jack is speaking to Ashley’s past and Ashley has no idea that she is speaking to Jack in her future.
Don’t Let Go made its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this past year under the title Relive. It is now ready for theatrical distribution and will be released this summer August 30, 2019.
The film is written and directed by Jacob Estes.
