From musical-slasher STAGEFRIGHT, to INSIDE directors Julien Maury & Alexandre Bustillo’s latest AMONG THE LIVING (and many more), it’s clear SXSW has an incredible lineup under its Midnighter section this year. Among them is STARRY EYES, a horror film that dips into body horror, paranoia, and even satanic cults from the production company that’s brought us some elevated genre films with A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE, THE AGGRESSION SCALE, and BIG ASS SPIDER.
A brief trailer has debuted for Dennis Widmyer & Kevin Kolsch’s film, peekiong into the allure of Hollywood, and the dark consequences it holds. STARRY EYES stars Alex Essoe, and has one hell of a supporting cast in Noah Segan (CABIN FEVER 2), Pat Healy (CHEAP THRILLS), and Amanda Fuller (RED, WHITE, & BLUE).
