In a follow-up to our August 31st exclusive chat with Jake Kennedy, the filmmaker passed us word last night that his short film Backtrack 2.0 has now made its online debut, and you can see it right here!
Kennedy, whose previous efforts include the 2007 feature Days of Darkness and 2009’s Penance, told us of Backtrack 2.0, which stars scream queen Eve Mauro (Wicked Lake, Sorority Party Massacre) and Harold Phillips, “It’s doing the festival circuit at the moment. I have submitted it into all the genre festivals and am waiting to hear back from most at this point, but it’s been accepted into four so far, and both my lead actors are up for multiple awards.”
Written, directed, produced and edited by Kennedy with sound design and score by Mark Binder and cinematography by Tristan Milani, Backtrack 2.0 intends to serve as a launch for a feature version titled Reversal and follows (according to the official synopsis) “a young, innocent woman (Mauro) who wakes up to find she has no memory of how she came to be tied up in a dark, damp store room. After escaping and being hunted down by a masked man, her world is literally turned upside down,as she experiences the living hell of what follows – in reverse!”
Have a look at the twelve-minute film and a trailer for Backtrack 2.0 below as well as a few exclusive stills and a poster.
