Soul Passage

A clever ex-NYPD cop turned small town detective on the verge of retirement is forced to take on one last case when his teenage daughter is abducted on a school field trip. His investigation leads him from Suburbia to the underground world of Haitian voodooism where he discovers that the kidnappers’ intentions are darker and more sinister than he could have ever imagined. In a race against time, he must suspend his conventional beliefs and accept the world of the supernatural in order to fight to save his daughter's life.

Writer Statement

This is not just a horror film. If you come away with only one thing from this screenplay we hope it’s a sense of the lack of boundaries between the supernatural and the real and between the perceived idea that we are not just disparate strangers, but all players in an inexplicable, mystical universe where unforeseen circumstances shape us, mold us and test us to make us who we are.
