Zach Green’s Fatal Pictures has proven in recent years to be a company worth keeping an eye on, with thus far the short films Worm and Familiar under their belt.
If you’ve seen either of those disturbing shorts, then you know that writer/director Richard Powell has a particular knack for bringing to the screen disgusting and practical effects-fueled body horror, elements that will again be on display in Fatal Pictures’ third and final short film, Heir. Before they head into feature film territory, the team has one more horrific little treat for ya!
From the Press Release
From Richard Powell and Zach Green’s Fatal Pictures, the company that brought you the critically acclaimed, award-winning horror shorts WORM and FAMILIAR, comes their new and final short film HEIR, a touching tale of father and son starring the Emmy Award-winning Bill Oberst, Jr. (ABRAHAM LINCOLN VS.ZOMBIES, TAKE THIS LOLLIPOP, CHILDREN OF SORROW) and Robert Nolan (SICK, WORM, FAMILIAR).
After connecting with a stranger of similar interests online, family man Gordon and his son, Paul, embark on an ill-fated road trip in which Gordon aims to indulge in a secret passion. Before the day ends, a horrible truth will be uncovered and a harsh lesson will be learned.
Combining the best and brightest of our previous film, FAMILIAR, with new and accomplished collaborators (BILL OBERST, JR., MARC ROUSSEL and RON BASCH from Red Sneakers Media), HEIR is set to be a disturbing, practical FX-driven horror short which examines one of society’s darkest taboos in a way only Fatal Pictures can. HEIR stands to be our darkest, sharpest, and most successful film to date!
