Director Statement

We are huge fans of the horror genre, particularly atmospheric horror. To make the audience feel something, based almost entirely on tone, is an incredibly exciting challenge. Then, further exploring human relationships on top of the scares themselves is the icing on the cake for us, and we're thrilled to continue exploring this idea.
