Upcoming SXSW Screenings:

Pet is directed and produced by Spanish filmmaker Carles Torrens (Apartment 143) and written by Jeremy Slater (Fox’s upcoming “The Exorcist,” The Lazarus Effect, Fantastic Four).
The film stars Dominic Monaghan, Ksenia Solo, Jennette McCurdy, Nathan Parsons, John Ross Bowie, Da’Vone McDonald, and Janet Song.
Pet is a psychological thriller that deals with the themes of identity, loneliness, selflessness, and what it means to truly possess another. It’s told through the prism of two isolated people, Seth and Holly, seemingly different yet more similar than they even knew. Pet is at its heart a dark love story which examines how much one is willing to sacrifice in the name of love.
