From the creators of #TheEndless
, which I saw last night @arenacinelounge
w/ a Q&A w/ producers #AaronMorehead #JustinBenson
, along w/ lead actress #BreaGrant
. It’s really more of a love story w/ a tinge of #horror
Set in the boondocks of Florida, a young couple settle into a house owned by the man, Hank #JeremyGardner
. It’s a dilapidated home at best, but free, as he inherited it. And at first, everything is going well. But while they love each other, she wants more.
One day, she leaves to explore Miami. One week turns into 2, turns into months. All the while, he’s pining for her, BUT some monster comes every night, trying to get thru his front door. But because he’s the only one to see it, no one believes him, especially not cop & brother to the traveling woman #JustinBenson
. He tries to get Hank out of the house, at least to the bar, where comic relief, Wade #HenryZebrowski
, spends all his time. Most nights, he just gets drunk at home w/ his shotgun, waiting on the monster to come.
Then, out of the blue, Abby (Grant) returns. She starts to clean up the place, gets him to host a dinner party for friends, it’s for her birthday. He decides his not going to blow it this time. He has the ring. He has a plan. But there IS a monster & it has other plans.
It was a blast seeing & hearing some of the people involved in some of my favorite #horrormovies
, that I’ve already written about. In typical fashion for me, I didn’t talk to any of them because I didn’t know what to say beyond “I love your work.” To someday be a part of a squad like that, producing #movies
is my goal in life.
Why you should see this #film
: there’s a 14 minute, single take shot w/ just Hank & Abby talking, all scripted. It’s not fancy, but it IS impressive. And it’s great character development.
It’s an intelligent story, that doesn’t go over the heads of the audience. The premise is simple. It’s the execution that raises it up.
While I saw it in a theatre, you can see it now on @itunes @amazonprimevideo
, etc. Or if you’re in LA, check it out at #ArenaCinelounge
, but leaving soon! #films #movie #horrormovie #horrorfilms #horrorfilm
