Private Project

A Demon Called Desolation

Lukas, an ex-animator (now unemployed and about to lose his house), finds in a Silent Horror Film Screenplay Contest (with a high prize) his only way out. The problem is that he isn't a horror writer and is totally blocked. Deadline is approaching and while the pages remains blank, horror and blood begin to emerge around him: Is he going crazy? Is it the hunger talking? Or is there a more sinister explanation?

Director Statement

As a child, demons, ghosts and vampires scared the shit out of me. As an adult, bank debts, medical diagnosis and burglars scare the shit out of me. Making this movie took me back to childhood (A time of sweeter horrors).
