Director Jared Skolnick, best known for his award-winning adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Music of Erich Zann, is near completion on his newest film, a short entitled The Earth Rejects Him; and he’s provided us with a teaser trailer and some stills.
The Earth Rejects Him, an original horror story written by Skolnick, is a haunting and surreal tale of a young boy who accidentally discovers a corpse while biking in the woods. In a moment of impulsiveness he steals a tooth from the body and buries it in the ground. His return to the burial site reveals a development he never would have expected.
Influenced by the films of Werner Herzog, Terrence Malick, and Guillermo del Toro, as well as the short stories of H.P. Lovecraft, this project from producer Robert Savage and Dead Henchmen Productions promises to be a unique and terrifying experience, an elegant horror film about modern man’s relationship with the unknowable powers found in nature.
The film, which should be making the film festival rounds soon, stars Ellis Gage, Colin Allen, Jacob Moon, and RJ Ramos. For more info visit The Earth Rejects Him on Facebook.
