Private Project


After a global epidemic, the US government locks most of the young people under 24 years old into quarantine.

10 years after, the epidemic is contained, but some camps are still running. It has never been disclosed where patient zero was from.

Another 10 years after, a serial killer strikes Sugar Grove, Virginia. A rising journalist comes to town to cover the story : her investigation will soon lead her to the town's darkest secret : Gil Perry's barn.
At her own risks.

Director Statement

For this film, I wanted to build an atmosphere, and keep it realistic, in its script, its violence (psychological and physical), its sound design, its narrative.
When I discovered movies, It was with John Carpenter and George Romero. My favorite one from Romero is DAY OF THE DEAD, where the humans scientists start to understand that the zombies can understand, communicate, and learn again.
In my vision, THE BARN could fit in that spirit : who's the beast, who's the most 'human' ?
Hope you enjoy.
