HorrorHound Weekend would not be complete without a killer film festival, which lasts all weekend. I have gotten the great opportunity to see a very impressive short that will be premiering at the festival on Saturday at 11am, ‘Service’.
‘Service’ was written and directed by Jerry Pyle and stars Deena Thompson and James Babson. Deena, known from ‘The Dancing World’ does not have an extensive line of acting credits, but she has been in many music videos for some big names including Sigur Ros (with Shia LeBeouf) and David Bowie (with Gary Oldman) (see her videos here, Sigur Ros David Bowie). Her costar, James has appeared in films such as ‘Hellboy’, ‘Ghost Team One’ and ‘Soloman Kane’.
A young mom has to bring her daughter to her work and discovers the house she cleans for a living has been invaded by a dangerous man.
As I mentioned above, I have already had the great privilege of already seeing ‘Service’ (thank you Jerry!), and I have to say, it is a must see. It had every element of a feature length horror/thriller film, shock, fear and murder. Conceptually, this short is fantastic. The acting is incredible! I can’t recommend seeing ‘Service’ on Saturday enough to all of you.
Showing along side ‘Service’ on Saturday is another short film titled ‘Call Girl’.
‘Call Girl’ was written by Eric Havens and the directorial debut of Jill Sixx Gevargizian. It stars the beautiful, talented Tristan Risk (American Mary) and the delightfully creepy Laurence R. Harvey (Human Centipede 2).
In one man’s attempt to exploit his date night via video-chat, he ends up sharing something far more disturbing. Some people like to watch, do you?
