Trailer, Stills, and More from Barbara Stepansky's Fugue
According to Wikipedia, a fugue state is a rare psychiatric disorder characterized by reversible amnesia for personal identity, including the memories, personality and other identifying characteristics of individuality. New indie flick Fugue updates the classic ghost story formula by putting an edgy psychological thriller spin on that very condition.
Directed and co-produced by Barbara Stepansky and written and co-produced by Matt Harry, Fugue stars Abigail Mittel, Richard Gunn, and Erika Bruun-Andersen. The film has screened at film festivals around the country, winning Best Horror Film at the 2010 Mississippi International Film Festival.
After moving in with her boyfriend, a young woman comes to believe her new home is haunted. But when she discovers the last eight months have been erased from her memory, she must unearth what caused the condition ... before the past destroys her present.
“Fugue starts out as a haunted house tale,” says Stepansky, “but a scientific discovery gives the movie an extremely modern and uniquely breathtaking twist. From that point onward, the audience has to ask themselves the same questions about reality as our heroine.”
Fugue was produced by Hive Mind, an exciting new production company founded by Stepansky and Harry. Hive Mind specializes in smart, well-made thrillers and is currently developing several feature-length projects.
