Here’s the third thing me and Julian Watkins shot with Mik Throntveit and Adam Quesnell in Fargo a couple of weeks ago. It’s odd? I like it. I have a feeling that maybe one friend on here has seen “Old Joy”.
Jason inadvertently causes his girlfriend to break her neck and gets thrown out of his house, making him a couch surfing homeless man. Jules deals with some personal demons (and possibly actual demons), as his interest in Art Bell’s call-in show begins to effect his life. Then poor Holly gets dragged into the spooky fun.
Holly and I used to sit around Espresso Royale in-between classes at MCTC last fall, and that’s where I wrote this. We shot it slowly over a year, all while I thought I was working towards my masterpiece. Turns out it’s just some pretty funny bits. And yes, yes it’s based on fact. I spent a little over a month listening to every episode of the Art Bell Halloween shows and they completely destroyed me. I never thought I was a pussy, and then I couldn’t get up and pee without turning on all the lights and making the dog come with me. I could never, ever, ever listen to an episode after the sun went down, but I would listen to them for hours and hours before that, feeling the chill of fear creep into me.
"Margot" is a short horror film created and submitted to the BC Horror Challenge. This is the director’s cut, slightly longer than the submitted version. A young woman does her laundry and finds that things go bump in the night.
