Let's review what happened on Super Channel on Day 2, which was Thursday, October 29th...
9:00 pm (repeats at 12:00 am) SHALL WE PLAY (Dir. Ann Forry) (87 mins)
Stacy is a troubled teen who is dealing with a situation among her circle of friends that starts with peer pressure and develops into full-on bullying. To make things worse, Stacy’s dalliance with the sinister app Shall We Play? has invited supernatural forces into her life and mind. Ann Forry’s debut film proves that some games should not be tampered with and some doors should be left unopened.
MY TAKE: I love the independent feel that brings authenticity to this film. I enjoyed the FX tricks and treats on offer (including how ghosts can leave bruises, and the design and imagery that went into the app Shall We Play). Lots to say about mental health and anxiety...as well as holding on, a little too long, to those we've lost.
Opening with the short film CLOUT (Dir. Ariel Hansen) (15:29 mins)
MY TAKE: You'll think twice about the IG influencer life after seeing this parasite meets spores meets mayhem short!
