‘True Fiction’: The Horror News Network Review

Coming off of its world premiere at the Brazilian genre festival Fantaspoa, writer and director Branden Croft unveils his latest thriller/horror hybrid called True Fiction. The third feature from Croft, True Fiction tells the story of twenty-something writer Avery (Sara Garcia), who lands her dream job as an assistant to her favorite horror author and inspiration Caleb Conrad (John Cassini). In the spirit of films like Misery, Audition, and even shadows of Saw, we see a terrifying character study of fear, obsession, isolation, and fandom, brought to disturbing life.
