Loneliness can be terrifying, and the new film Straw Man looks to show us how scary it can be! The first trailer for Andrew Barker’s film hit online today, and this post-apocalyptic shock show is looking pretty sweet!
Straw Man was written by Garry Charles and stars Leslie Simpson and Axelle Carolyn. Look for further updates on the official Straw Man MySpace site soon!
“Straw Man is the harrowing tale of one man, a lone soul in an empty world. To combat the loneliness of isolation, he surrounds himself with people made out of straw, hand-crafted and moulded from faded memories of friends and family. They offer little in the way of company; yet, they hold insanity at bay.
This Lone Man is a contradiction, his rambling thoughts battling against his need for structure and routine. In his quest for normality he spends each day teaching pupils, reading to them from the classics as they stare back at him with blank, featureless faces. But when the line between reality and fantasy is blurred by madness, his ordered life is sent into a downward spiral.
Why do the straw people stare at him with blind judgment? What are the children trying to tell him? Who is the beautiful woman … and does she offer salvation?”
