Specter FOG VERSION.jpeg
SPECTER OF WEEPING HILL

Director:  The Barber Brothers

Starring: Breanne Solis

Screenwriter:  Nathaniel Barber

Cinematography: Matthew Barber

Music by:  Juan Carlos Enriquez

Genre:  Horror

Tagline: Face Your Fears

Logline: A young woman returns to an abandoned cemetery that has haunted her since childhood to confront the recent loss of her sister.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

“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.
