Halloween Provokes a Witch’s Bloody Spell
in New Dark Comedy-Horror Short Film ‘MISCAST’
Hitting SHRIEKFEST Before Releasing Online October 31, 2017
LOS ANGELES – An innocent young woman unwittingly helps a witch cast a bloody spell at their office Halloween party in the new horror comedy short film MISCAST. Continuing on its successful festival run, the film heads to the respected horror-focused SHRIEKFEST on October 8th before launching wide online October 31st on Vimeo.
Notable stand-up comedian and actress Nina Daniels (Pariah, Maron) stars and produced this deadly witchcraft tale, which comes from established editor-turned-director Carsten Kurpanek and rising screenwriter Matt Katzenberger (Final Draft Big Break 2017 Finalist). The film also stars actress Brea Bee (Silver Linings Playbook) and young actor Kade Pait; and has proven an audience favorite since first premiering at Dances With Films and screening at HollyShorts
MISCAST tells the story of office worker May (Daniels) caught in a battle between good and evil when her new co-worker (Bee) reveals herself as a real witch after turning their office Halloween party into a bloodbath with a deadly spell.
Daniels shares, “The project came about due to a chance meeting between myself and Matt (Katzenberger). He offered to write something for me and Miscast is the result of that elevator ride.”
The film delivers a deadly clash, sprinkled with gore, humor, and magic, while presenting ‘miscast’ themes: feelings of not fitting in, the difficulty of finding true friendship, empathy vs. selfishness, what it means to be good, bad, and all the grey areas in between.
