Shuffle and Synopsis Challenge
Scary Monsters / Super Creeps
Starring: Jude Law, Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, and Ray Winstone.
Hard-working construction labourer Lou (Ray Winstone) doesn’t get to see his little girl much anymore. Bethanne (his ex-wife, Sadie Frost) has relocated to London with her new husband (Rick, played by Jude Law), taking eleven-year-old Stella with her.
Lou knows Bethanne is trying to turn Stella against him with lies, but he doesn’t realize just bad it’s become until Lou finally gets Stella all to himself for the summer.
Stella, once a bright and chatty little girl, has become sullen. She doesn’t want to play or talk. She doesn’t listen to music or use the computer. She’d rather stay locked in her room, seemingly silent.
Lou thinks Stella has fallen for her mother’s lies and tries hard to get her to open up to him again like she did when she was small. Then an incident with a “fortune teller” at a fun fair causes all hell to break loose. Literally.
Lou enlists the help of two paranormal investigators, Robert Parker (Jonny Lee Miller) and Harrison Long (Ewan McGregor). Together, they rescue the girl and find the source of evil.
SPOILERS: it’s the mother. Jude Law intentionally married her and moved her away in an attempt to thwart her plans.
