Short film & trailer 2016
Written and Directed by Joseph & Lisa Sorrentino
Adding to the professionalism found in the trailer this short ups the ante hinting at a classical style that lingers not on grisly carnage but on the resulting detritus in the area surrounding leaving many of the grisly details to the imagination of the audience themselves. Although with that in mind there is also a lingering shot of the ‘dark one’ chomping down on what I can only assume is a heart (a fresh one at that) still dripping crimson fluids this lends a sacrificial/ancient aura to the story an element personally I wish to see embellished upon and can assume will be once a full length comes barreling towards fruition following the climax of a successful crowdfunding campaign. This short also boasts various aspects of the Gatekeepers story and in doing so introduces vivid characters within all of which I can only imagine will converge towards the tale’s finale, a fantastic way to get an audience hooked and salivating for the main event.
The short also does what many doesn’t by supplying a detailed cast list and numerous other details regarding the production.
Do yourself and the horror realm a favor by supporting this project. I have high hopes it will exceed expectations and only lead to more successful projects in the future.
