– SYNOPSIS –
After a journey to investigate desolate Pluto, astronaut Arthur returns home a shattered man. He sees eyes forcing their way through the skin of his hands, eyes that distort his friends and the landscape itself into monstrous visions. Believing himself the doorway to alien invasion and gruesome murder, he must take desperate action. “I Am The Doorway,” a shocking science-fiction/horror short, is based on the chilling Stephen King story and fully authorized by the author. It has been adapted by Jeffrey Stackhouse, Richard A. Becker & Wendy Lashbrook, a multi-award-winning screenwriting team based in the US, with an encyclopaedic knowledge of all things horror.
From their original pitch for the adaptation:
“… a movie in the tradition of Argento and Cronenberg, a film of beautiful colors and gorgeous wide-screen set pieces, which frame a brutal and devastating horror.”
On-board to bring this film to life are director/producer team Simon Pearce and Wolfram Parge, whose first feature length horror, Judas Ghost, was released on DVD & digital in the US & UK in 2015. The film also had a successful festival run, receiving four awards for Best Film, one for Best Director and two wins for Best Actor.
Praise for Judas Ghost includes:
“Slick, stylistic & intense” Close Up Film
“Imaginative & chilling” Fangoria
“Raises the bar for independent horror” Horror News
“A cracking ghost story” Film Juice
