Still best known as Battlestar Galactica's Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace, Katee Sackhoff is beginning to carve herself a bit of a niche in the horror genre. Following Oculus (2013) and The Haunting In Connecticut 2: Ghosts Of Georgia (2013), she is now front and centre in Don't Knock Twice.
Initially pitched as in the vein of Candyman (1992) and The Ring (2002), Don't Knock Twice also turns out to be tapping into the cycle of mother and child horrors seen in the recent likes of The Babadook (2014), Goodnight Mommy (2014) and Prevenge. Revolving around a "psychologically terrifying urban legend", the plot sees a guilt ridden Sackhoff trying to save her estranged daughter from the apparent curse of a vengeful witch.
With Lucy Boynton (Sing Street) and Nick Moran (Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels) also in the cast, Don't Knock Twice is out in the UK on 31 March.
