2014, SAN DIEGO LOCAL SPOTLIGHT, 8 mins
A filmmaking couple investigate an urban-myth story of an old bakery where a mass killing took place decades ago. Finding the answers they were looking for, their curiosity takes them to a place of no return.
HAVEN was selected as the “Best of Films,” as well as the “Best Use of Genre” film as part of the National Film Challenge. Casselman employs the “Found Footage” method of verite horror filmmaking to tell his story. His last film ABANDONED played at Horrible Imaginings Film Festival last year. This is a Local Film Spotlight!
