Watch: Horror Short ‘Givertaker’
Arcanum Pictures’ Dead Kids Club has released its cheeky horror short Givertaker, a fun throwback to YA horror of the 90s that premiered at Fantastic Fest 2016.
The first in a line of what will be interwoven stories with teen horror elements was written by Peter S. Hall and directed by Paul Gandersman. It’s about a pissed off young girl who conjures a supernatural being who grants wishes to get her revenge against the mean girls who ruined her life.
Check out the short below:
And here’s the very cool festival poster:
Starring Nell Kessler, Caiti Ward (Rooster Teeth’s “RWBY“), Jessica Perrin (Found Footage 3D), Sharmita Bhattacharya (iGirlfriend) and John James Pepper, Givertaker is the fun genre story of Sarah, an angry teen who conducts an ancient ritual to seek revenge on the classmates she believes have wronged her.
Givertaker also serves as a proof-of-concept introduction to the world of Arcanum Pictures’ Dead Kids Club and its interwoven stories of teenagers, transgressions and a town filled with all manner of different supernatural elements.
