Infidelity kills in horror short “PLATFORM”
A new British independent short horror film brings to life the escalating sense of claustrophobia and dread resulting from an adulterous affair, with horrifying results.
Set on a deserted train station, the film centres around a husband who, while returning home from an illicit encounter, must face the haunting consequences of his carnal desires.
The film recently enjoyed a successful run of festival screenings at the likes of GRIMMFEST, LUND FANTASTIC and the BRITISH HORROR FILM FESTIVAL where writer/director Mark Pluck won the Rising Star Award.
Writer/Director Mark Pluck reveals his inspiration behind PLATFORM:
“I’m fascinated by how each of us lives two separate lives; one out in the physical world and the other inside our own heads. With this film I wanted to explore what might happen if these two worlds inexplicably collided and became indistinguishable from one another. The idea scared me, as do train stations at night, so I decided to marry the two together and write a story centred around the conflicting and often internalized feelings of guilt and lust.”
PLATFORM was filmed in Glynde, East Sussex and stars Finlay Robertson and Isabella Inchbald.
