The Crescent – Canada, 2017


The Crescent is a 2017 Canadian supernatural horror feature film directed by Seth Smith (Lowlife) from a screenplay by Darcy Spidle that centres on a woman and her young son following an unexpected death in the family. While the mother and toddler struggle to find spiritual healing, a mysterious force from the sea threatens to tear their souls apart…

The movie stars Andrew Gillis, Chik White, Amy Trefry, Terrance Murray, Danika Vandersteen, Woodrow Graves and Britt Loder. 

Raven Banner (It Came from the Desert; Another Evil; The Blackburn Asylum) holds Canadian distribution rights to The Crescent.


“Smith’s nano-budget, crawl through the maritime mud, moss and starfish-extract, first feature, Lowlife, hinted towards this kind of distinct, creative wellspring, and his environment-headspace sensibilities come into full bloom in The Crescent. The craft here, put to effective use, creates a kind of a fugue state in the audience, punctuated with moments teasing out the horror.” Kurt Halfyard, Screen Anarchy

Filming locations:

Nova Scotia, Canada

  1. I once read a novel loosely similar to the storyline of the movie. Great to see a story like this made into horror movie.
