CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com audio film review on the new psychological horror film “We Need to Do Something” – featuring Pat Healy of Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater Company – in select theaters, beginning on September 3rd, 2021.

Sierra McCormick is Sissy, a rebellious teenager who is in a love affair with Amy (Lisette Alexis). While in the midst of texting each other, the tornado siren sounds, and her family gathers in the most secure place in the house, the fortress-like stone bathroom. The storm cuts the power and fells a tree that crushes part of the house and blocks the only escape door from the bathroom. As the family waits it out, Mom (Vinessa Shaw), Dad (Pat Healy) and young son Bobby (John James Cronin) have to stick together while strange and bloody things start to happen.
