We love it when good horror movies make us feel out of our minds, so the news of a short film called Out of My Mind makes us feel… well… nevermind.
Out of My Mind will be hitting the festival circuit after it completes production later this year. You can watch director Cindy Maples’ previous short, Random, below.
From the Press Release
Out of My Mind, the second short film from critically acclaimed actress/director Cindy Maples and Carriage House Productions, just wrapped principal photography. After the success of her award-winning short Random, released last year, which won Maples not only Best Short Film awards but also Best Actress, she has stepped back behind the camera to create this horror short.
The film is based on the story “Drip Drip” by author John Cosper with Maples and her co-writer/assistant director Neil Kellen writing the screenplay. With this short, Maples is tapping into some of her greatest influences with a story that she describes as a little Edgar Allan Poe and a little Stephen King.
Carter is a successful mystery writer on the rise. Fueled by alcohol and a chance meeting with a beautiful woman in blue, his latest book is flowing out of him. If only he could find the source of dripping water that’s driving him insane. As the novel progresses and the bourbon flows, what Carter’s written about the woman takes a hauntingly dark turn. Slipping into madness might be a great way to write, but are the horrors of the night real or only something out of his mind?
Out of My Mind stars Maples’ real life husband, Rusty James, as the tortured mystery writer Carter and Mina Fedora as The Woman in Blue. Out of My Mind is currently scheduled to be finished later this year and will be entered in multiple festivals across the country.
