Flickchart Features: New Indie Horror Film, “So Falls The Shadow”
One of our longtime users, Abe Moran (“waveofmutilation” on Flickchart), asked us to take a look at a new venture he’s undertaking as associate producer on an independent feature film called “So Falls The Shadow”. The creators’ goal of the film is to create a more realistic lycanthropic horror story that sharply contrasts the empty and emotionless trend of vampire films that have recently gained favor. Less Twilight, more Let the Right One In – but for werewolves.
The story’s set in the deep south of Tennessee – where a pastor of a small town tries to justify a rash of killings as the will of God, but slowly comes to a more personal realization as his hurried investigation reveals his worst fears and immeasurable loss. Here’s a first look at their proof-of-concept teaser trailer:
If your interest is piqued, you can follow the film’s progress on Facebook and Twitter. We’re told the creators of the film have some high-level studio execs keeping a close eye on them after hitting some industry meetups, but that they’re looking to the online community to keep the buzz strong as they acquire funding and a distributor for the picture.
With microbudget genre films getting further exposure through direct rentals and purchases online (via Netflix, and other on-demand video services) small films from young filmmakers, like “So Falls The Shadow”, have a real shot at a larger audience – with your support.
