A new kind of psychedelic horror will soon be unleashed onto screens in Spring 2017...
CLOSE CALLS, the upcoming feature-length horror film from S & Drive Pictures, is currently in post-production with a release date of Spring 2017, and will feature an original synth-driven score by Grammy Award winner Rocky Gray (formerly of Evanescence; soundtrack for The Barn), and special makeup effects by visual FX artist, Les Galusha (Contracted).
Utilizing synthwave music, practical effects, and sets constructed on a soundstage, director Richard Stringham has promised that CLOSE CALLS will not just be a retro throwback film, but a film that offers a refreshing take on old-fashioned visual storytelling. Stringham, who started the independent production company, S & Drive Pictures, in Sherwood, Arkansas, produced, wrote and directed CLOSE CALLS which tips it's hat to heroes in the horror genre such as Tobe Hooper, John Carpenter, Wes Craven, Stanley Kubrick, and David Lynch. Stringham also assembled a local team of Arkansans to force CLOSE CALLS into existence.
The film centers around a troubled teen girl (Morgan) who is forced to stay home and tend to her crazy grandma after being grounded by her father. But when daddy leaves for a dinner date, Morgan's paranoia heightens as soon 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.
