Director Statement

This film was inspired by other thriller films and shows I’ve enjoyed in the last few years. I wanted to challenge myself into doing a genre that heavily relies on getting viewers hooked quickly to keep them in it. Being a fan of mystery myself, I had a great time crafting a story where we unravel a supernatural mystery as it unfolds on screen. I enjoyed exploring this individual vs. group conflict, and it’s something I would like to continue exploring in my career.
