Director Statement

My deepest aspiration has always been to stir hearts and awaken minds through my craft. "Speed Demon" encapsulates this ambition, offering an immersive, thought-provoking experience - as thrilling as it is enigmatic, as emotionally charged as it is visually impressive.

In Speed Demon, the unyielding force of demonic possession and the magnetic allure of a storied romance, race like two vehicles hurtling down a dark, foggy highway towards an inescapable, explosive, head-on rendezvous.

It ventures through the spectrum of human emotions, from the heart-pounding rush of adrenaline to the contemplative silence of a moonlit avenue. With moments of unexpected humor in the midst of horror, like flickering headlamps in the dark, it promises both laughter and introspection.

As we submit it for your festival, I eagerly anticipate sharing this unforgettable cinematic journey with audiences all over!
