Come Be Creepy With Us

A millennial nightmare that follows Anna, a young woman stuck in the midst of a quarter-life crisis, who learns how to keep on living after being haunted by the undead spirit from her summer camp past. It’s about emerging adulthood and millennial angst; about letting go of our pasts and embracing what it means to grow up.

Director Biography - Beth Fletcher

Beth Fletcher is a fantastical filmmaker searching out new projects that will amuse and entertain a greater audience. As a graduate of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts she has experience directing in both film and the theater.

“My goal is to inspire people and shed some light in a world that at times refuses to recognize its existence. We don't live in the dark, our eyes are just closed. If only for a moment I can convince someone to look around and appreciate what's there, I feel I'll have been successful in my career.”

She has written, directed and produced a slew of different projects which have been featured in festivals all over the world including the Toronto International Film Festival. She was a Horizon Award Semi-Finalist as well as a finalist in Series Fest’s Women in Film Initiative.

Her love of magical realism comes through brightly in her narrative shorts and her grasp of something beyond the surface in her documentaries.

Currently residing in New York City.

Director Statement

"Recently I've been discovering how terrifying it can be to try to figure out how to 'be' without being told what to do. I no longer have schedules for school, I don't have any sort of consistency at work, and to be quite honest it feels like I'm lost alot of the time. When I was a kid my mom always told me to stay put. "If you're lost, stay where you are and I'll come find you". But here's the kicker: no one's coming to find me.

Anna is very much in the same spot I've been in, one that I believe we've all been in at some point or another. Trying to figure out where to go next, and letting that fear of not knowing keep you where you are. She feels trapped by her fear, unable to move forward, but knowing there's no going back. Through the creation of a swampy, stylized design and the humor that Michael packed into the script, my hope is that this film will offer up inspiration for people who are feeling the same way. Maybe we haven't found a solution but at least we can help them know that that feeling is real, and that they're not just losing it. I want to alleviate the lonely feeling that comes along with being stuck. I want people to know they're not alone in that, and they're not failing at entering adulthood.

COME BE CREEPY WITH US came into my life at the exact moment when I needed it, much as Bonnie does for Anna. Bonnie shows Anna a way to escape, quite literally, but she also shows her that no matter what the situation, even if your dead spirit is trapped in a lake, there's always a way out."
