Director's statement

We (Kris & Lindy Boustedt) strive to tell fascinating, entertaining stories about compelling women. Brides To Be is no exception. With the successes of our short films Practical Things and Together Forever (dozens of festival screenings, awards and over 1M views on YouTube as of this writing), we knew we wanted to return to positive-representation Queer 2.0 storytelling – stories about great characters who are also gay. First and foremost, Brides to Be is a character study of Jenna as she embarks on a journey of self-discovery. On the eve of her nuptials, something is tearing at her and she’s unable to write her vows. She loves Robin, she wants to marry her, but she’s also unsure of her own identity and place in the world – she’s worried about losing her sense of self when the ampersand becomes permanent in Robin & Jenna. It’s also a supernatural drama, a classic haunted house film – shot in an actual haunted mansion. In the style of films like Ti West’s The Innkeepers or Roman P

Reviews

Above all, this is a love story, and the house and its secrets cloak that in an air of mystery. Brides To Be offers a horror story with an emotional center and characters that we instantly bond with. We are invested in their story as they make their way through the evening. We care about them, we want to see them come out of this unscathed – not just by the ghostly entity, but they their own internal demons… Carollani Sandberg and Angela DiMarco are incredible.

Ain’t It Cool News

I’ll say right up front that it’s good, perhaps even great… This is the kind of economical, smart, Hitchcockian film that M. Night Shyamalan wishes he could make… Every element belongs, is necessary, and delights even as it unsettles… Not that Brides To Be is strictly a ghost story. It refuses to tell us exactly what is the source of trouble; or, more accurately, it embraces several possibilities, allowing conflict to emerge from multiple sources… This one deserves your money and time.

Seattle Gay Scene

A lot of horror films have disposable characters… This is not one of [them]… It is a drama about overcoming fear in order to really connect with someone else… this film made me care.
