Filmmaker Ramzi Abed’s reality horror film Telephone World is nearing completion, and he has provided Dread Central readers with a clip of what he considers a pivotal moment. He advised, “Turn out the lights, and turn it up. It’s a piece of the mood and magic of the film… Everything that happens in it is 100% real.”
As he told us previously, “This project is drenched in suspense and is beyond voyeuristic also. It has things happen in it that I’ve never seen before ever, including the opening shot, which is of a camera being thrown and bounced down several blocks of Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, and the main body of the film, which was shot in one continuous live shot in one single take in multiple video formats. Not to mention some of the sound design created and being created by sound genius Borja Sau (Portland, Box of Shadows). It’s chock full of surprises.”
Check out the clip and new still below the synopsis, and look for more soon!
It’s been a long time since a film has played with the notion of reality so much while also crafting an emotionally riveting suspense film, but that is exactly what Ramzi Abed’s newest feature film, Telephone World, is made to do.
Telephone World tells the story of Rachel Plasky (Elissa Dowling), who finds out she got the lead part in a new TV show called “Fairfax Girls”. The main body of the film is shot in one continuous 80-minute shot. All of the action happens in one single take with real phone calls and answering messages occurring in real-time.
Written and directed by Ramzi Abed (The Devil’s Muse, Noirland), the film stars Elissa Dowling (Dread), Chandler Maness (Orgy of Blood), Kara Hyatt (Noirland), Tamarah Murley (A Four-Course Meal), and Eric Fleming (The Devil’s Muse).
