SEPTEMBER 27 AT 7PM
Jeremy Berg - Burien, WA - 87 min
The most effective thrillers are never solely about the monster, the psycho or the bugged-eye alien. Jeremy Berg's debut feature meditates on family, marriage, technology, memory and trust while serving up healthy doses of the creeps.
Sisters Abby and Rebecca have been divided by an awful incident neither is keen to discuss. They gather to spread the ashes of their recently-deceased mother at the family Lake House (creepy cabin in the woods: check).They are joined by Calvin, husband of Abby and seemingly every woman's ideal of the sympathetic partner (yet there is something not quite right with him). All goes well until the two sisters visit the site of the horror from years ago, and uncover the titular nefarious object that will change their lives forever.
Landing Ship X-1
Dave Hanagan - Portland, OR - 8 min
