EUROPEAN PREMIERE - FrightFest is proud and delighted to be premiering British writing duo Tim Woodall and Phil Drinkwater’s expansion of their 2016 short submitted through our ‘New Blood’ initiative strand in partnership with Queensbury Pictures. Harry Shum Jr., from Disney-ABC’s ‘Shadowhunters’ is bereaved James, a video archivist who, while logging tapes of old TV broadcasts, comes across a surreal and disturbing clip of a masked entity. He believes it’s the product of broadcast signal hacking, but his discovery takes a sinister turn when he tracks down similar broadcast intrusions that turn his mission even more rabbit-hole obsessive.
