Our story takes place in 1984 and is a rejuvenation of classic films like 'An American Werewolf in London', 'Friday the 13th', 'Evil Dead', and 'The Howling'. As a young child in the 80’s, the time period holds a special place in my mind as a mixture of dreams and memories- I made it a point to bring the look and feel of the era through in the settings, props, wardrobe, and most importantly, the characters of the film.
When Heather Ross and her lifelong friends take one final trip out to a cabin in the woods before they go their separate ways after graduating from college, the weekend takes an unexpected turn when people start disappearing. Is one of their own responsible? How about the killer bear that’s rumored to be in the woods? Maybe one of the seemingly unstable hunters that have been drawn to the area and are out to get the bear? Join Heather and the gang as they find out where their loyalties truly lie and discover the secrets of the forest that might become a grave for all of them!
RL is not a gory slasher film, but a thrilling and nostalgic story about unique characters with their own motivations and desires. They just happen to catch the attention of an evil recluse living in the woods and become the subjects of his latest experiment when all they wanted was a happy weekend with their friends before they all went their separate ways to their post-college lives.
I hope you enjoy the film and are interested enough to learn more about how it was made and the plans we have for it!
