Short Film: A Matter of Trust

A Matter of Trust
USA | 2016 | 8 minutes | John Veron

Eric comes home to his girlfriend to a grisly scene: the house is a wreck, she's covered in scrapes and bruises, and whatever attacked her is locked in the bathroom. But the thing in the bathroom sounds very familiar, and Eric has some choices to make...

Cast: Julian Quebedeaux, Lauren Miller
Cinematography: Tyler Russell
Format: DCP

 

Director Statement

Looking back, I can think of two things that are to blame for turning me into the horror nerd I am today: Joe Bob Briggs' Monster-Vision and horror anthology shows like Are You Afraid of the Dark, the Twilight Zone, and the Outer Limits. A Matter of Trust is my attempt to capture the spirit of the latter. It's a simple story: A guy comes home to an hysterical girlfriend who tells him she fought something and locked it in the bathroom. He asks what it was, then hears his girlfriend's voice coming from the bathroom, telling him not to trust the thing standing in front of him. And then we're off and running.

Short Film: Cuckold Picasso

cuck poster
Cuckold Picasso
Part of the "Human Killer & Psychological Terrors" Shorts Block, starting 12 Noon on Sunday, September 11!
USA | 2015 | 5 minutes | Lance Larson

It’s hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head.
This isn’t a film. It’s an experience.

Synopsis:
Pablo Picasso's "1971 Harlequin Head", thought forever lost in a Romanian fire, is found vividly alive in the disturbed psyche of a tortured man's soul.

Although grizzly, the action and title are just strong metaphors about our need to deal with internal fears, and internal terror. It is necessary to open a third eye (symbolized in drill scene); necessary to dare to look straight on at the things we need to face. In doing so, we free ourselves to embrace and learn from the things we are prone to unnecessarily fear the most.

Cast: Micah Fitzgerald (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Fear the Walking Dead, Westworld), Gia Vangieri (How Not To)
Official Website Format: DCP

We all have work to do. Sometimes we seek therapy or just let the voice in our head be the guide. This scene is ultimately about self-reflection and growth.' share='image' display='inline' new_window='0']Lance Larson[/hi_image]
