Abstract/Artist Statement

Inspiration for this film came from different Sci-Fi/Thrillers such as The Twilight Zone and Pyscho.

The premise of this film is about an evil entity visiting a young man named Tommy in his dreams. This entity disguises itself as his grandmother and possesses him in order to walk on the Earth once again.

This film is based off a personal experience I had when I was younger. I met my great grandmother when I was a year old and when she passed away I started talking to her in my dreams. Luckily for me she was not an evil entity but she would tell me stories that I would, in turn, tell my mom and freak her out because there was no way for me to know these stories because I was still very young.

I want the audience to enjoy the film and experience a variety of emotions. My hope is that the audience will grow to appreciate this film genre and become part of the growing sci-fi/fantasy/psychological horror and thriller community.
