The one of a kind short film collection featuring 10 short films all based on the same theme is back, and this time our filmmakers go deep inside themselves to show us what scares the scarers. They have each brought fear to the big screen in the form of monsters, ghosts and psychos, but in this edition of the award winning series, they show us that everyday life can be just as scary.
Featuring the best up and coming writers, directors and actors in the independent scene, The Collective V.6 is sure to terrify even the hardest of horror fans. 10 filmmakers - 10 short films - unlimited fear!
As I have done previously, I will be providing the filmmakers, the title of their entry and a short synopsis where available.
Cameron J. Scott and Quattro Venti Productions, whose entry is called 'Security Violation'.
Tagline:- They come for you when you least expect it.
Graphik13 films, whose entry is called 'Skeleton'.
Tagline:- Win, lose or draw, death comes for us all.
The latest disasterpiece from Graphik13 films tells the story of a family who are about to face a storm. A darkness is surrounding them, but is the entity that lurks in the shadows coincidental or premeditated?
Brian Williams and Mostly Harmless Pictures, whose entry is called 'Play Me'.
Tagline:- Who's watching who?
Jason Hoover and Spiral Filmworks, whose entry is called 'Devotion'.
Tagline:- Faith is a powerful drug.
Jason Hoover and JABB Pictures, whose entry is called 'I am no one'.
Tagline:- Follow me into the darkness.
James Mannan and Liberty or Death Productions, whose entry is called 'Mercy'.
Tagline:- Often truth is more terrifying than fiction!
Based loosely on the true story of the 1987 Steven Small murder, 'Mercy' portrays the kidnapping of indie filmmaker Jim Manden (James Mannan). Kidnapper Eddie (Justin Forbes) conceives a plot to keep his hostage in an underground box until his ransom is received.
Jerami Cruise and Toetag EFX, whose entry is called 'Insomniac'.
Tagline:- What do you do when you can't sleep?
Insomniac was born out of a late night pizza in Studio City; CA. Effects artist and director Jerami Cruise, writer/producer Robert Hensley and actress Danielle Inks were complaining about the lack of original material they had been reading. Realizing they all had iPhones, editing programmes and some free time, the three began shooting a silent, noir-style psychological short. Conceived by Hensley, who created Inks' look and planned her costume, with additional story points by Cruise, who also directed the film and executed the effects, Insomniac took a total of four hours to shoot over the course of five evenings over three weeks. Shot entirely on the iPhone 4 on location in Greater Los Angeles, the film explores the escalating challenge of killing time when you can't sleep. Inks plays the insomniac, A striking woman whose idle hands get her into mischief.
Well Hung pictures, whose entry is called 'Trepidation'.
Tagline:- Her fear is irrational. His is commitment.
Consequence Pictures, whose entry is called 'Speeches'.
Tagline:- Some fears are impossible to let go.
