Director Statement

As an actress with a long career in horror films and the owner of a Special FX Make-Up Studio that brings horror to life, I am compelled to contemplate the flip side of horror- the real aftermath of tragedy and the emotions of sudden loss. In honor of my son, Atticus, who died in 2018 of brain cancer at the age of 26, I wanted to make a film to honor the unbreakable bonds of love with an ever so slight nod to the horror genre that I know so well.
