London (U.K.) based filmmaker Sarah Appleton has released the trailer for her first self produced and directed narrative short film – END USER, a tech horror with a comedy edge. Professional videographer, documentary filmmaker and writer Sarah has previously worked with the likes of the British Film Institute (BFI), Arrow Video, Severin Films, Studio Canal, 101-Films and more under her video production company banner Caprisar Productions.
Ms Appleton has this to say about the film: “End User was inspired by a friend who predicted her own engagement after seeing an advert online. The film is poking fun at programmatic advertising and hopefully it will be enjoyable for comedy-horror fans!”
Phones don’t kill people people do! As technology becomes more and more a part of day-to-day life, a mother and daughter learn a hard lesson about what happens when they allow their phones to track their whereabouts, as well as the sinister nature of tailored adverts.
This short comedy-horror stars Tami and Loraine Stone and features Caroline Munro (The Spy Who Loved Me, Dracula A.D. 1972).
Bond and Hammer icon Caroline Munro plays a barmaid in END USER; interestingly she had never stepped foot behind a bar before and therefore had no prior experience in the role. Luckily she didn’t need to actually pour a pint! The pub featured in the short is the Two Doves in Bromley.
END USER is set to receive it’s world premiere at cult horror magazine The Dark Side’s annual film festival DarkFest at the Genesis Cinema, Mile End, London on November 24, 2018. Tickets are available via thedarksidemagazine.com/product/the-dark-side-darkfest-2.
