The 11th annual Screamfest LA commenced this past Friday, October 14th, (it runs through the 22nd at Manns Chinese 6 in Hollywood, California), and filmmaker Peter Podgursky provided us with an exclusive photo from one of the fest’s selections, his short film The Night Caller, along with the actual film itself. Read on to watch!
Having debuted last night, October 18th, at Screamfest, The Night Caller was co-written and directed by Podgursky (Cheerleaders, Night of the Little Dead) and Donna Thorland (Tron: Uprising) and adapted from a short story by Gary Raisor (who was nominated for a Bram Stoker Award for ‘Best First Novel’ for Less Than Human in 1992). It revolves around a father’s promise to read a bedtime story to his daughter, which subsequently turns into a nocturnal descent into terror and madness for his young wife.
Produced by Cindy Fang, The Night Caller stars Laurel Vail, Angela Khachatyran, and Mike Horton.
Give the film a watch below along with our exclusive still from The Night Caller.
