Director Statement

Sean Frasier cites POSSESSION (directed by Andrzej Żuławski), David Lynch's absurdist humor, Nicolas Winding Refn, and Dario Argento’s giallo era as inspirations for the film’s visual identity. He has long been a fan of Andrew Bonazelli's fiction and screenplays, and HARMLESS is their first collaboration. The film was shot and produced entirely with local Philadelphia talent.

HARMLESS is a bold blend of horror and twisted modern mythos that explores vigilante justice, rape culture, and the enduring impact of trauma.
