71 | The Void

Writer/Director: Jeremy Gillespie & Steven Kostanski

Synopsis: Sheriff’s deputy, Daniel, is quietly trying to wait out the end of his shift when he notices an injured man stumbling out of the woods. After taking the man to a nearly empty hospital on the verge of closing forever, a series of incredibly stranges events begin to take place. It's difficult to determine which is the bigger danger, the inexplicable monster roaming the halls, or the ominous group of costumed, knife-wielding figures surrounding the hospital, preventing anyone from excaping. You'll have to settle-in and buckle-down for this movie because shit gets crazy (in the most wonderful way possible).

With ‘The Void’ we will combine our film-making talents and create an unparalleled horror experience filled with terrifying visuals and shocking creature effects. Intended as a contained story, ‘The Void’ takes place in a single location with a small cast. It features a unique array of bloody, visceral practical effects and nightmarish creature design. ‘The Void’ will fuse the body terror of ‘The Fly’ and ‘The Thing’ with the surreal fear of ‘The Shining’ and ‘The Exorcist’, and will evoke the tone and mood of the works of John Carpenter, and J-Horror films such as ‘The Grudge’. While we are influenced by these horror classics, ‘The Void’ will not be a deconstruction of old tropes, but an original concept that will make use of the practical creature effects and prosthetic skills that we have been honing since 2005 to tell a completely contemporary story.
