MOLD!, from Neil Meschino, is a spectacular micro-budget horror film that made a big impression when it played at the Nevermore Film Festival in Durham, NC a few years back. The film is pure imagination, spirit and love for film on screen. It is often silly and over-the-top, but the energy is undeniable. And the film is the directorâ€™s film school thesis but he continued to work on the film after graduating.

Some directors, like Trevor Jeunger (Coyote), take advantage of this and make remarkable films, ones that feel dangerous where the audience is insecure about where and how far the director will take the story and his/her imagination. This freedom to go rogue is liberating for independent horror and few take as hard a look into the human psyche as the guest … Continue reading
