Director Statement

"Don’t Look Back was conceptualised as I was carrying out my OCD night-time routine and suddenly thought; 'What if someone was stood watching me do this?'. As the premise was developing I lost a family member and this pushed the narrative towards different ways of dealing with loss. - Don’t Look Back aims to give more than a traditional horror film, it aims to leave a lasting emotional impact."
