Director Statement

Fire Hill is a blood-soaked celebration of the free spirit... of knowing who you are, what you want, and just enjoying the ride along the way. The main character, Ramsey, is a beacon of positivity and hang-loose mentality that the world could use a lot more of, even in the face of horrifying demonic adversity and an alternate dimension full of ghouls and guts. Sometimes you just gotta go with the flow and enjoy the simple things in life, like a delicious buffalo wing at the end of a long day of fending off soul-hungry supernatural forces.
