"The Children of the night... what sweet music they make..." - Bram Stoker
jOSHUA is a tale of the lost and of the ones that prey on them. Set in suburbia and a modern metropolis, this dark tale focuses on the perils of Katherine, as she navigates the rough path of her trade. When she meets Joshua, she is intrigued by his intellect, his charisma, and the way he exudes calm. Is he what he appears to be, or is he something darker than the night around them? Is he the good, religious man-child living with his elderly grandmother, or is he a charlatan with unspeakable nefarious appetites and desires?
jOSHUA is a snippet from the novel 'The Dark One' by Jason Krieger. The short film, directed by Cooper Griggs, is intending to introduce these characters to the viewer, in the hopes that they will find an audience that would like to see the full story.
