There’s wind of a new indie project gaining steam in Sherwood, Arkansas. Filmmaker Richard Stringham has recently announced his latest film will focus on a girl trapped in her own home. Close Calls looks like the perfect low-budget film we love here at We Are Indie Horror. With its uber-simplified storyline, the teaser trailer manages to grasp the viewers’ attention without hesitation. Maybe it’s the haunting score, maybe it’s the voluptuous actress liberally pouring ranch onto her pizza wearing a sexy red bra. Either way, this film has caught our attention and we look forward to its release in the Spring of this year.
From the Press Release:
Close Calls features a troubled teen girl (Morgan) who is forced to stay home and tend to her crazy grndma after being grounded by her father. But when daddy leaves for a dinner date, Mergan’s paranoia heightens as she starts receiving several disturbing phone calls while dealing with grandma. Between all the phone calls, the drugs she has taken, and surprise visits from some unexpected guests, Morgan now thinks everyone around her is out to kill her. And to make matters worse… she keeps forgetting to give grandma her meds.
This upcoming feature-length horror film from S & Drive Productions was produced, written, and directed by S & Drive’s founder, Richard Stringham, who started the independent production company in Sherwood, Arkansas. Vowing to make a retro horror piece that tipped its hat to heroes like Bava, Argento, Hooper, Craven, Kubrick, and Lynch… Stringham assembled a local team of Arkansans to force Close Calls into existence. He also joined forces with Volumes of Blood creator P.J. Starks, who signed on as Associate Producer for the project.
