This film is now five years old. While I am proud of the film as a whole, its flaws are very apparent and were just as vital to the learning process as its successes. This was my first foray into true filmmaking and for that I will always be grateful to every single person that had anything to do with it: from cast and crew to any well-wishers or passers-by who are looking to kill a few moments. What follows here is my second attempt at making a horror film that plays against the archetypes we know and love. In just a couple of months I will have my next go at it. I can't imagine stopping until I've done just that, otherwise if this is failing then I think I'll do it forever.
