Student Slasher Horror Thriller Short- 2 Female Actors Required

New South Wales, Australia
Listed by View details

7 minute short film involving VFX work, practical effects (makeup and fake blood), and a focused 2 day shoot at a 2-story Edwardian house, in classic horror film fashion.

Requires 2 female actors.
Looking for strong actors seeking fun, challenging roles to perform in the psychological thriller/ slasher horror genres. Gain experience and show off some sharp, professional footage on your show reel.

Project will be shot over 2 days into the night with a well rehearsed crew of 7. Food is provided, same as travel costs.

Roles:

Lily:
"a young, stylish and confident woman in her early 20s, at least on the surface. Having had a previous bad experience with share houses, Lily is wary about moving into a new one. However, she simply can’t pass up the offer for this charming new place and is willing to disregard her need for details and organization to be friends with her new roommate. Upon arriving, she is thrown into the deep end as she realizes that it will be roommates, plural. This extra new roommate is shy and gives Lily the sense of control that makes her comfortable. However, Lily will have to quickly come to terms with the fact that her intense focus on trying to be friends with others is causing her to miss her basic fear instincts as her situation plummets into dire horror. Leaving her fighting for her life as the film comes to a close."

Becca:
We first meet Becca as she sneaks up on Lily in her bedroom. There is clearly something off about her as she struggles to pick up on Lily’s social cues and seems to be observing Lily obsessively (think Martin from a Killing of a Sacred deer). We can’t help but trust Becca because we feel sorry for her shyness and want to help her grow more confident. As it turns out, Becca is a shapeshifting cryptid who survives by mimicking and replacing humans. Whilst she seems shy at first, this is only because she is stalking her prey and watching Lily’s every move so that she can replace her. As the film progresses, Becca’s research is finished and it becomes time for her to murder Lily.
