Another indie feature that’s readying itself for its premiere is Ivo Raza’s JarRing, and we’ve got the info and a myriad of other goodies from the flick for you!
If a serial killer wrote poetry, how would it sound? If you accidentally dialed a wrong number and got the following message, would you call again?
Everyone wears the mask of sanity simply because it is part of their vanity. They say it’s ill to kill. But who are they? Put to death. Deprive of life. Rule out. Delete, erase. Ah, you have no clue. No money, no power, no pull. I veto your bill. I thwart your finale. I dress to kill. I’m on top of my game. You can’t. You can’t. You just simply can’t. Distinguish my name. Extinguish my flame. So I asked Jack and he had to rip. Ed had no gain. What a trip; to have killed in vain. Kenny was white, Angelo good, someone’s always watching. You know you should, would, could?
You’d keep calling to hear the next one, wouldn’t you?
Thus opens JarRing, a suspense/horror film about four friends who discover a phone number with bizarre voice messages which turn out to be recorded by a serial killer. After calling the number for their daily dose of perverted poetry, the two young females, Ariana and Randi, disappear. This prompts the two protagonists, Theo and Sean, into a search for their missing friends. Their quest leads them outside their comfort zone of lavish Miami living and into the dark world of after-hours Homestead, a sleepy, rural community in Florida’s Deep South, where they encounter strange new locales and individuals while being terrorized by a series of phone calls, text messages, and riddles.
Meanwhile, as Theo and Sean are being systematically stripped of all their “safety” devices, cell phones, money, and car, the story switches to a group of legal volunteers. They are working on a last minute quest to free an innocent man from Death Row, when they uncover similarities in his case to a string of serial murders committed in the area some years back. With eerie references to the murders hidden in the messages, one can’t help but wonder if these cases are possibly connected? Is the real serial killer free and playing mind games with the protagonists? Have they become the next chosen victims?
All these questions are answered in a surprising and unsettling finale.
