2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Tara Subkoff’s #Horror

This past February, there was a brief trade mention that actress Tara Subkoff would be getting behind the camera for her directorial, feature film debut with her The Last Days of Disco co-star Chloë Sevigny signed on to star. Further digging into the project entitled #Horror, suggests that this might be a news headline screen treatment of the fictional internet based character Slenderman. An associate producer for stomach-churning brutal beatings filled The Killer Inside Me by Michael Winterbottom, Subkoff has been taking “stabs” at directing — her creative juices are on display (see short below) with performance pieces including a project called Future/Perfect (2013), with Milla Jovovich, for the 55th Venice Biennale.

Gist: Inspired by actual events, a group of 12 year old girls face a night of horror when the compulsive addiction of an online social media game turns a moment of cyber bullying into a night of insanity.

Production Co./Producers: Subkoff, Brendan Walsh, Jason Ludman, Radius Entertainment’s Oren Segal

Prediction: Park City at Midnight.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available. TBD (domestic). TBD (international)
