Exclusive stills from A.D.Calvo’s atmospheric indie ghost story SWEET, SWEET LONELY GIRL.
Writer/director A.D. Calvo (THE MIDNIGHT GAME) has just wrapped his latest feature film, SWEET, SWEET LONELY GIRL, a moody, character-driven ghost story set in 1980 New England.
Here’s the synopsis:
Erin Wilhelmi (THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER) plays Adele, a shy and lonely farm girl. When Adele comes to town to care for her elderly, agoraphobic aunt (Susan Kellermann), she meets the worldly, self-possessed Beth (Quinn Shephard), and friendship blooms. Adele encounters dark forces in both Bethwhose cynical, weary world view belies her youthful appearance, and Aunt Dorawhose strange command over her house extends beyond the confines of her locked attic room.
According to Calvo the film is “a singular amalgam of 70s horror films such as BURNT OFFERINGS, the films of Mario Bava and female doubling tales like 3 WOMEN and MY SUMMER OF LOVE; the film winds through the thematic terrain of identity formation and the dangerous way in which small moral compromises can lead one down a slippery slope to larger ethical lapses.”
You had us at Dan Curtis. Then sealed the deal with Altman.
Have a look at these exclusive to SHOCK – and incredibly elegant – still at the top of this item and below. Looks very jean Rollin-esque, in fact…
More news on the film coming as we get it…
