NO ONE IS COMING
Director: The Barber Brothers
Starring: Breanne Solis and Jeff Jensen
Screenwriter: Nathaniel Barber
Cinematography: Matthew Barber
Music by: Juan Carlos Enriquez
Tagline: Don't Bother Screaming!
Logline: A young woman awaits the return of her boyfriend at a secluded cabin only to discover that she may in fact not be alone.
The inception of “No One Is Coming” began one night while writer, Nathaniel Barber, was staying in a cabin while shooting a horror short when it occurred to him what would happen if someone walked up the deck to the cabin and tried to force themselves inside.
The goal behind No One Is Coming is to tell an old-fashioned ghost story. On a thematic level, it explores a character that is forced to discover her own inner strength. In the end, the film is about how a person faced against an impossible obstacle is more capable of overcoming such a feat than they might have thought possible.
The picture is visually influenced by the works of John Carpenter and eighties horror movies. The appearance of the antagonist is greatly inspired by Werewolf of London (1935). We also attempted to imitate the visual style and editing of eighties horror films.
Our ultimate hope is that the picture engages the audience through its creepy sequences and the progression of the protagonist’s development. And if we’re lucky, it will leave the audience with a fair amount of goosebumps.
