Female-led indie horror/stoner comedy HOUSESITTERS, the debut feature from Chicago-based filmmaker Jason Coffman, is now available on Amazon Prime in the US and UK.
The movie is available free with Prime subscription or for rental. HOUSESITTERS had its world premiere at the inaugural Windy City Horrorama horror film festival in Chicago in April 2018 and garnered positive notices for its highly unique take on familiar genre territory.
Inspired in equal measure by modern comedy like BROAD CITY and goofy horror films like GHOULIES, this female-led horror/comedy follows the misadventures of Angie (Annie Watkins) and Izzy (Jamie Jirak) as they take on a plum housesitting gig that kind of spirals into supernatural horror.
HOUSESITTERS was shot entirely in Humboldt Park and Albany Park in Chicago in the summer of 2016. The film features a creature puppet designed and built by Ohio-based independent filmmaker Dustin Wayde Mills (THE PUPPET MONSTER MASSACRE). Behind the camera, Jolene Vega served as cinematographer with Jef Burnham as assistant director and Tatiana von Recklinghausen as lead makeup/effects artist. The soundtrack includes a score by Chicago-based Joshua Burke (who records under the name boardinghouse), with songs by Black Candles, Desire (courtesy of Italians Do It Better), Inner Vegas (courtesy of Good Glass), and Night Witch.
