SEEDS World Premiere at Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival
SEEDS will have its world premiere at the Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival. Produced by Kip Weeks, Chris Di Nunzio, Anna Chinappi and Skip Shea, SEEDS is a New England Folk Horror movie in the tradition of James MacTaggart’s ROBIN REDBREAST and Robin Hardy’s THE WICKER MAN.
A grieving mother Macha, played by Emma MacKenzie is feeling isolated in her grief and holds onto her Catholic faith while her husband Andrew, played by Patrick Bracken dives into his work as a distraction. Against her wishes he leaves to study an old New England cult, that’s religion is based around the metaphysical properties of the apple.
The secrets of these metaphysical properties that the Cardinal Sinibaldi, played by Kip Weeks, is very interested in discovering for his own use.
As they rush to make these discoveries, the cult has deadly plans of their own.
Written and directed by Skip Shea it was shot on location in the Blackstone Valley which is situated between Providence, Rhode Island and Worcester, Massachusetts. It was also shot in parts of Connecticut using the same locations that were used in LET’S SCARE JESSICA TO DEATH.
SEEDS also stars Rick Johnston, Aurora Grabill, Nicole Watson and features Barbara Magnolfi.
