Director statement

“Alfred Hitchcock said: ‘There is no terror in a bang, only the anticipation of it.’ With mainstream suspense and horror we get with cinema today, we are slowly losing the meaning of this quote. What we are giving audiences instead is the ‘bang’ over and over again without any anticipation. With #Screamers we return to this type of storytelling done with a modern day style, docu-horror, allowing the audience to feel like they are there as a fly on the wall.”
