About The Project
When young Sarah Moreno is abducted the people of Briny; a sleepy southern town begin a desperate search. It in a place of numerous folk tales and legends only one of the search party begins to take them seriously; Sarah's own estranged uncle Mitch. Recalling from his own experience with THOSE who live in the dark Mitch is driven by blind faith and convinction to find his niece. All the while keeping a promise he made to her long ago; to protect her from the Monsters, forever and always.
Our story takes inspiration from the great works of horror by such masters as H.P. Lovecraft, John Carpenter, Clive Barker and Stephen King. As well existing in the vein of more modern psychological horror films such as The Babadook, The Machinist and It Comes at Night.
Where the Monsters Go takes classic children's stories such as Where the Wild Things Are, The Grimm Fairy Tales and folk tales of The Boogeyman as a stepping off point to mold a modern pulse-pounding story of one man's attempt to confront the many demons that sleep under our beds.
Spear headed by the leading creative teams of Northwest Florida and Southern Alabama. Comprised of a diverse group of members from all corners of the globe ranging from various race/genders/religions and upbringings purely focused on bringing the best story possible to the big screen.
Our hope is to bring a heart-pounding, pulse-racing, intense CINEMATIC experience unlike anything you've seen before. This will be a hard 'R' horror/thriller with plenty of corn syrup blood to spare as our hero Mitch hunts those who lurk in the shadows. Our film is also born from the mind of a writer ever inspired by pure popcorn films like The Monster Squad, Near Dark and Stephen King's Silver Bullet.
Our team has been working together for a number of years and is wrapping up yet another short production and more than ready to take on long form story-telling through the means of a feature film. We've taken the time to refine our approach to filmmaking and Where the Monsters Go will mark our next foray on the cutting edge of today's modern cinema landscape.
Join us as we capture Mitch's story of going toe to toe with the monsters under your bed!!!
