SPECTER OF WEEPING HILL
Director: The Barber Brothers
Starring: Breanne Solis
Screenwriter: Nathaniel Barber
Cinematography: Matthew Barber
Music by: Juan Carlos Enriquez
A young woman returns to an abandoned cemetery that has haunted her since childhood to confront the recent loss of her sister.
“Specter of Weeping Hill” is about dealing with grief and the lengths at which it can take someone. The story of the titular Specter is inspired by a traditional theme in paranormal hauntings in which a ghost searches for a loved one that has long passed.
The picture is visually influenced by Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943), Glory (1989), and The Changeling (1980). We also attempted to imitate the visual style/ editing of 70s horror films.
Our goal with the short is to move the audience emotionally and to show that even in our darkest days we can still find hope.
