Fresh of its win of the Audience Award (Bronze) at the 2012 Fantasia International Film Festival, the short film Stay at Home Dad is now online, and you can watch it in its entirety right here!
An out-of-work father goes to extreme measures to raise his baby daughter… with bizarre consequences.
The jaw-dropping 15-minute film co-directed by John Skipp and Andrew Kasch stars Matthew Currie Holmes (Wrong Turn 2), Alisha Seaton (The Fourth Kind), Trent Haaga (Terror Firmer), Richard Grove (Army of Darkness), Diane Goldner (Feast I-III), and Kat Harris (Body of Proof). With both screenplay and soundtrack by Cody Goodfellow, the insane premise “starts with a guy with giant boobs, nursing his baby and crying a lot. Then it gets weird from there.”
Lensed by Buz “Danger” Wallick (Never Sleep Again: The Elm St. Legacy), FX legend Mark Shostrom (Evil Dead II) and his team bring the man-boobs, gore, and other surprises, with a hallucinatory dream sequence designed by Phil Mucci (Opeth’s “The Devil’s Orchard”) and stop-motion animator Michael Granberry (“Robot Chicken”).
It’s a family affair for modern Lovecraft pioneer and frequent Skipp collaborator Goodfellow (Spore, Jake’s Wake), whose wife, Tori English, produced; and their daughter, Madeline, also stars as the baby in question.
