Dark Sky Films has announced a July 21 digital release date for Mother May I?, a psychological thriller from director-writer Laurence Vannicelli.

The film, which stars Kyle Gallner (Smile, Dinner In America) and Holland Roden (Teen Wolf), will be available for rental or purchase from digital retailers the same day it opens a limited theatrical run.

In Mother May I?, Emmett (Gallner) and Anya (Roden) unexpectedly inherit his estranged mother’s house after her passing. Emmett wants to clean and flip his recently deceased mother’s house: get in, get out, and avoid any trauma still lingering from when she abandoned him as a young child. Anya, his fiancé, sees this as an opportunity to finally force Emmett to deal with his trauma because she believes it is preventing him from being the partner she needs. So she convinces him to take mushrooms to get him to let go. But while they’re tripping, she starts behaving like his mother. The next morning he wakes up sober, but she still won’t drop the act, leaving Emmett to wonder whether Anya is simply taking the game too far or his mother’s spirit has somehow possessed her.

The cast also includes Chris Mulkey (“Twin Peaks”).

Vannicelli developed Mother, May I? with his partner, Daisy Long, a former ballerina, who choreographed the dancing seen in the film’s supernatural sequences.
