NEW YORK CITY, New York – With the fall season officially upon us, and October rapidly approaching, it means we’re almost entering Halloween season. And while the pandemic may have thrown an unforeseen kink, into many of the planned theater releases. It hasn’t stopped indie filmmakers from producing some eye-catching, small budget horror content! Enter director/actor/producer/writer and curator, of Van Pack Productions Vseant Nath. Who’s set to show off two of his scary short films to the world next month. The India-born, Kentucky-raised filmmaker plans to release horror pictures “Nature Crawls” and “Pigs in a Blanket,” just in time for All Hallow’s Eve.
“Nature Crawls” follows a young woman, who after waking at 3am to use the restroom, hops on her phone before going back to bed. During which she comes across an article about a neighbors house being burned down. However, the alarming account proves later on to be the least of her worries. “Nature Crawls” clocks in at 3 minutes long, and Vseant is sure to point out that the time at which the films star experiences her run-in with terror, is no accident. “Why is 3 am significant? Witching hour? Why is this time considered the peak for supernatural activity?”
Meanwhile, “Pigs in a Blanket” centers on an irate client whose outburst at a plastic surgeons office, proves to have dire consequences. Vseant explains, this seven-minute scare-fest will carry underlying themes about the dark side of human interaction, and the repercussions that can follow. “Have you ever been insulted by someone serving you, or by a customer you have serviced? We all have been on both sides… whose side are you on?”
Both shorts currently deep in post-production, will soon be submitted to festivals, but are scheduled to drop online a little before October 31st. However, an official announcement regarding the premiere date is forthcoming. When they debut, you’ll most likely be able to catch them at the official Van Pack Productions channel on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCULAl3H4sugjUnxrCtAmdCg), and Vimeo (https://vimeo.com/user116688970)… so stay tuned!
