When we first told you about the availability of Jacob Cooney’s short film entitled “The Frolic” based on a short story of the same name by Thomas Ligotti, it was only available as a rather spendy collector’s edition DVD or a finicky download that wouldn’t work with all players. But that’s been remedied now as Cooney has informed us that he’s partnered with a new online digital vendor at a greatly reduced cost.
With the use of Indie Reign‘s technology, Cooney is now offering the film digitally at just $1.99 to rent for up to 7 days or $5.99 to own. Check it out below!
Directed by Jacob Cooney and produced by Jane Kelly Kosek (Wonder Entertainment), “The Frolic” follows the story of Dr. David Munck, a prison psychologist, who uncovers a deadly supernatural force in one of his inmate patients that ultimately leads him to his breaking point.
Starring Maury Sterling (John Doe), Michael Reilly Burke (Dr. Munck), Jennifer Aspen (Leslie Munck) and Kailey Swanson (Colleen Munck), this short film has played in numerous film festivals including the Cannes Film Festival, Los Angeles International Short Films Festival, Dead by Dawn Film Festival, Shriekfest and Dances with Films and has frightened audiences across the world.
A prison psychologist returns home from his last day at work, an early retirement brought about by prolonged exposure to his latest subject, a serial killer known only as John Doe, who preys upon children. Doe is a psychotic Peter Pan who describes his murderous actions or “frolicking” as a way of “freeing” the children from their drab, earthly confines.
