We’ve all got our demons and fears, and the dark has always been a big one for many people… at least that’s what I hear. Filmmaker Bryan Wolford taps right into that vein with his new film Myctophobia. Check out the teaser, and leave the lights on.
Myctophobia was shot over Feburary 25 and 26 and stars Kitsie Duncan, Steve Christopher, and Eric Shellito. It will be part of The Collective Volume 4, which brings together filmmakers to create ten 10-minute short films with a theme and will combine them. The project will premiere at this year’s Days of the Dead in Indianapolis on July 7th.
“This collection’s theme is emotions, and the emotion I was given was fear. I came up with Myctophobia after looking through a list of phobias and settled on this one due to the wording of ‘the fear of darkness,'” Wolford said. “I thought the way it was worded gave the dark almost a living quality. So I set out to make a film about a woman who has to face her fear of darkness head on. I can’t wait to share this great story with the world.”
Kelly has a fear of darkness and will soon be alone in her house. Are the things she’s seeing all part of her fear, or are they something much more sinister?
