What isn’t to love about films like “The Craft” and “Mean Girls”. Rhetorical! The answer for everyone should be a resounding “Every damn thing!” Arcanum Pictures’ Dead Kids Club gives us a dose of what makes those two films great.
The short film, “Givertaker” is the first in a line of what will be interwoven stories with teen horror elements and, the ever brutal world of high school politics.
The Givertaker, which premiered at Fantastic Fest 2016, is a short film that centers around a young girl who has opened a window into the supernatural realm in order to exact revenge on some of her fellow classmates who did her ill. The window is a direct catalyst to the Givertaker, a supernatural being who grants wishes… at a cost.
The short written by Peter S. Hall and directed by Paul Gandersman is a healthy dose of nostalgia for all things horror and high school-centric. The poster art by Stephen Andrade is a throw back to young adult horror books, that bring to mind classic Goosebumps cover art.
