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.
