Screw CGI. The new short Remnants from director David Ugarte embraces good old fashioned practical effects within the setting of a detective story, and you can watch it right here!
Filmmaker David Ugarte is the award-winning director of grindhouse short Hell of a Deal, a fan favorite at Phoenix Comicon. His other shorts include The Crate and Fifty-Two.
Remnants stars Hugh McCrae, Jr. (Girl in the Box, Check Please), Terrance Roundtree (Stealing Sunrise), Tonya Adamski (CUPIC: Diary of an Investigator), Reavis Dorsey (Hell of a Deal, Fifty-Two), and Karlie O’Hearn (Controlled Minds, The Voice That Was Louder Than Before). The film was written by Eric Joel La Fuente and Corey Schubert (co-writers of Hell of a Deal, Fifty-Two).
“I set out to make a movie that would be especially fun and exciting for lifelong fans of the horror genre, like myself, who grew up on flicks that used creative practical effects to bring nightmares to life,” said Ugarte, who co-produced Remnants through Escape Velocity Films.
Two homicide detectives and a medical examiner investigate the worst crime scene in a suburban neighborhood’s history. Among the remains of a butchered family, the detectives find evidence of a crime so horrific that remnants of an unspeakable evil still lurk in the home.
