The East Gable Productions has announced the New York City premiere of director Kevin Barker’s Last Kind Words, a Southern Gothic, coming-of-age horror feature starring Brad Dourif, on Friday, June 8th, at the Brooklyn Film Festival.
The film was shot on a breathtaking 600-acre Kentucky farm that’s been in the same family since the day Sherman marched on Atlanta. The creepy 19th century buildings, untouched forests, and neglected farm machinery form the backdrop for a timeless story of long forgotten love, long remembered murder, and the ghosts of a landscape that never forgets.
17-year-old Eli (SPENCER DANIELS) moves with his family to the isolated farm of reclusive Waylon (BRAD DOURIF), a man whose dark past threatens to overtake him. Eli’s family works to restore the farm’s desolate fields, while he becomes fascinated with its eerie forests. Eli also has what seem to be typical teenager problems. He’s torn between two girls — the mysterious Amanda (ALEXIA FAST) who lives near the farm, and his old friend Katie (SARAH STEELE), his only connection to the outside world. As he explores, Eli discovers secrets lurking in the farm’s mythic woods. He learns that within the forests a different line is drawn between life and death, and he must save someone on the other side of that line. LAST KIND WORDS is a Southern fairy tale, a coming of age horror movie with a strong voice.
Screening times are as follows:
Friday, June 8th, 10:00 PM at IndieScreen, Brooklyn, NY
Sunday, June 10th, 5:00 PM at Brooklyn Heights Cinema, Brooklyn, NY
