Last night saw a sneak peek screening of two new short films from GEP, “The Caregiver” directed by Graham Reznick and “The Trouble With Dad” directed by Glenn McQuaid. On July 11th, they’ll be released as part of Chiller TV’s anthology film, CHILLING VISIONS: 5 STATES OF FEAR.
Genre network Chiller TV has dove headfirst into the original movie game, most notably ushering a new Larry Fessenden film (BENEATH) into the world earlier this year and branding their own anthology series in CHILLING VISIONS. In revealing the lineup for the second CHILLING VISIONS omnibus feature, it seems the channel is sticking in the Glass Eye Pix business, leading the film with two frequent Fessenden collaborators, Glenn McQuaid and Graham Reznick.
Premiering Friday, July 11 at 9 p.m. CHILLING VISIONS: 5 STATES OF FEAR will feature segments helmed by McQuaid (I SELL THE DEAD), Reznick (I CAN SEE YOU), Brett Simmons (HUSK), John Poliquin (GRAVE ENCOUNTERS 2) and Zao Wang, whose short HONEYMOON SUITE got plenty of buzz at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival.
Find the rundown of the filmmakers’ shorts below, as well as the ‘state’ of fear each corresponds with. The first CHILLING VISIONS, subtitled 5 SENSES OF FEAR is now on DVD & Blu from Scream Factory, and features work from Emily Hagins (MY SUCKY TEEN ROMANCE) and Eric England (CONTRACTED)
