Directed by Jacqueline Castel

  • USA 2015; 9 min
  • Original version: English
  • Genre: Thriller

  • From the director of MIHARA presented at IFFAM Project Market

Synopsis

A supernatural killer stalks a young woman and her friends in a seedy, neon-lit dive bar in this short film featuring horror legend John Carpenter.

Director's Statement

I've always been drawn to horror films as a means to explore the confrontation between reality and the unknown. Read on a deeper, more metaphorical level, this dynamic examines society's simultaneous attraction and rejection of the inexplicable, its struggle to come to terms with that which cannot be explained or accounted for.

Production

  • SACRED BONES
