Today we featured the awesome short film Anniversary Dinner as part of our Women in Horror Month celebrations. The film is directed by Jessi Gotta, who owns production company ‘Inappropriate Films‘. The independent company are dedicated to blending genres to create quality indie films.
Jessi is an award winning director in the horror industry, with both Anniversary Dinner and her first film The Big Bad having toured the festival circuit picking up numerous awards. They Will Outlive Us All, Jessi’s third film, has won several awards including: Best Horror Sci-Fi Feature from the 2013 Toronto Independent Film Festival, Best Horror Feature from the 2013 ShockerFest International Film Festival, Best Horror Comedy from the 2013 Atlanta Horror Film Festival and Best Feature & Best Creature Feature from the 2013 New Mexico Fright Fest.
Currently, the company has two films scheduled for release, Late Night Local having just been completed. The Moose Head Over The Mantel, set for release this Summer, ‘is a horror/drama feature that follows several generations of an American family wrought with abuse, dysfunction and violence, from the 1880s through the 1980s.
The story centers on Lillian Hoffhienze Bachman and Jay Bachman, a young married couple who have just moved into the Hoffhienze family home with their troubled son, Nicholas. Lillian soon becomes obsessed with learning about her sordid ancestry, terrified that the past might dictate her son’s future.
The tale unfolds from the perspective of the moose head hanging over the mantel in the Hoffhienze home, both a silent witness of the heinous events that have taken place over the course of one hundred years and the family’s inadvertent prisoner.’
