About the project

An evocative horror about the reality of the supernatural world encroaching into our everyday lives, threatening our homes and family. Taking as its inspiration the seminal horror films of the 70s, it is a chilling insight into the sacrifices we must make when we bring a new life into this world.

FirstBorn premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival 2016 and played at the Sitges Film Festival 2016. 

„This is an impressive second feature from writer-director Nirpal Bhogal who has distinctly brought a handful of Sket’s gritty reality to FirstBorn, sprinkling it with ghostly goodness to ensure its foot stands firmly in the horror genre and nowhere else.“ by Scream Magazine
