Director:  The Barber Brothers

Starring: Nathaniel Barber, Breanne Solis, and Damian Harris

Genre:  Horror

In the fall of 1978, a distraught commuter travels down a haunted country road only to discover that its inhabitants have other plans.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

The inception of “Go Back” began with the idea of producing a modern horror film that would serve as a cautionary tale similar to classic works such as Hansel and Gretel.

 

Go Back’s purpose is first and foremost to entertain its audience. On a deeper level, it is meant to convey that we never know how much time we have left. In the film, the protagonist flees rather than returning to his girlfriend and addressing their relationship issues. Along his journey, he is given multiple signs and opportunities to “go back”. However, he continues to ignore the warnings like we often do. Once he finally decides to heed the warnings and “go back”, it is revealed that it is too late.

 

Visually this picture was greatly influenced by the works of John Carpenter and Sam Raimi. We were also inspired by the 1970s television show Starsky & Hutch which provided insight on acting styles, camera techniques and use of color in 1970s media which is when our story takes place.

 

Our ultimate hope is that people enjoy our little story and perhaps leave thinking about the tale they just witnessed. And if the audience is enthralled by the character driven aspect of the story, hopefully, it will make the film that much scarier. - Nathaniel Barber and Matthew Barber
