After the death of her father, Ruby Ando tries to reconnect with her estranged and isolated mother, whose hoarder house is a nightmare labyrinth of secrets and dangers. All the love Ruby was never shown she sees her mother lavish on her treasures and trinkets, the possessions that possess her. But when Ruby desperately tries to free her mother, the house wages war, ensnaring both women within its maze. Brought to hideous and twisted life by a mother's love, the "Horde" is determined to purge Ruby from the collection—or see her join it forever.

“I think the great evils of the world have always begun with the treatment of people as things.” said Bennett.“Even in this raw nerve of a familial melodrama, this is the crux – all the suffering, all the frenzy and madness and emotional climax all stem from this. Separate from the tragedy of mental illness is the deliberate dehumanization of human beings.”

“Ruby fears that her mother, Mia, values possessions over everything, including her own child. She feels like an object, a souvenir of her mother’s great love affair with Ruby’s father.” Bennett continued. “She feels like a trinket, exoticized and objectified by a woman who used possessions to feel powerful, special, superior, and important --- uses objects as armor, as proof of her success and lifelines to memory.”

Horde is set for release on October 16th, 2019.
