A new kind of psychedelic terror will soon be unleashed unto screens in Spring 2017…
Close Calls is an upcoming feature-length horror film from S & Drive Pictures. It was produced, written and directed by S & Drive’s founder, Richard Stringham, who started the independent production company in Sherwood, Arkansas. Wanting 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 is joined by P.J. Starks as as Associate Producer, who is known for creating the Volumes of Blood series.
Synopsis: Close Calls features Morgan, a troubled teen girl who is forced to stay home and tend to her crazy grandma after being grounded by her father. But when he leaves for a dinner date, Morgan’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 the 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.
The amazing post definitely screams “retro horror” and the film sounds like a fun throwback to films of the 70s and 80s that we love. We will keep you updated about more news on the film.
