Writer Statement

"Venor" is a love letter of a horror film: a throwback to 70s/80s classics with an emphasis on suspense, surprise, and atmosphere. The goal of this picture is to revitalize the genre with a new franchise in the vein of John Carpenter and Wes Craven. It is a homage to "Texas Chainsaw Massacre," "Deliverance," and "Black Christmas" with its own unique voice.

Set amid the 2008 housing crisis, this horror story pits city versus country in the modern age.
