The Peripheral

When a patient, Kenny, shows up at her home unexpectedly, Dr. Joanna Redding attempts to help him overcome his "irrational" phobia of the creatures that he sees in his peripheral vision. Dr. Redding uses Exposure Therapy, forcing Kenny to face his fear. Of course, the creatures that terrify Kenny are very real - and very deadly. It is a horrifying discovery that Dr. Redding uncovers all too late.

THE PERIPHERAL stars cult actress Lynn Lowry ("Shivers", "The Crazies", "Cat People") and features old school Stop Motion Creature Effects (in the vein of Ray Harryhausen) by artist Ron Cole.

Director Biography - JT Seaton

JT is a graduate of the CalArts Directing program. Shortly after snagging a diploma, he wrote and directed the short horror film “Nightshadows”, which won several awards at various film festivals. His first leap into the world of feature films came with the horror/comedy “George’s Intervention”. “George’s Intervention” screened all over the world, winning multiple awards before landing a distribution deal with Breaking Glass Pictures. Next came “Divination”, a multi award winning short film. “Divination” found a home at the Hillbilly Horror Show (Vol. 3) and can be seen during the 2014 Halloween season at amusement parks across the country, brought to you by HorrorHound!

In addition to terrifying people with his own creations, JT is also responsible for sharing the nightmares of other horror filmmakers. In 2011, he co-founded the NOLA HORROR FILM FEST (in New Orleans). Now in its 7th season, the NOHFF is growing and spreading fear throughout Louisiana… and the world.
