HOLLYWOOD, CA – 03 May, 2016 – Agnation, the feature film debut of writer and director Dan Swift coming off a successful world premiere at Motor City Nightmares, will have its West Coast Premiere at The Independent Filmmakers Showcase of Los Angeles (IFS) on Wednesday May 25th at 2:30 pm at the Pacific Theaters at The Grove.
Agnation is the story of a freshly minted real estate agent who along with a close friend purchases a house sight unseen at auction for a quick flip to cover the costs of her sick mother’s medical expenses. Things take a turn for the worse when the run into the previous owners who have a pressing family need of their own.
Agnation is described as a gritty, fast paced, brutal, old school blood bath harkening back to the shocking, social commentary filled independent horror films of the 70s but paced for a modern movie audience.
Filmmaker Statement – Dan Swift:
I have wanted to make movies for as long as I can remember, and when I finally took the chance, I knew exactly what I wanted to make–a throwback inspired horror movie in the spirit of the great indie films of the ‘70s that were highly entertaining, shocking, and often wrapped in social commentary that would also be compelling for a modern audience.
