Fearless Filmmakers: Fright Night!

In the nearly two years since it's inception, local series "Fearless
Filmmakers" has brought to its monthly collection of shorts surprising
number of local shockers. In honor of Halloween, this month's series
is an all horror blast, and one of the best collections Fearless has
put forward to date. Jon Springer's "Dollface" finds the local legend
taking a Cronenberg-like twist on The Shining. After taking the
assignment of caretaker at an old creepy house, Maxine (Tiffany Moy)
is fascinated by a doll she finds in the basement and troubled by
bizarre nightmares. Springer's film eases in slowly before dropping
down the psychosexual rabbit hole.
Culminating in some subliminally
spooky special effects by local artist Mike Etoll.
