Last March, Look At Me Films announced a new horror short they would be distributing on the festival circuit, “Dear Guest.” Given that it was March, we have no idea how many festivals that short actually made it to, but the short is about to get a second life on streaming services.
In the short, a young couple checks into a rental home for their vacation, only to find they’ve wandered into a disturbing game concocted by the home’s owner. Ashley Bell (The Last Exorcism) and Noureen DeWulf (Good Girls) star as the couple at the center of the story. The short was directed by Megan Freels Johnston, the founder of Look At Me Films, and produced by Johnston, Michael May (Auto/Biography), and Bill Whirity (Prey). Megan has hopes that the short will get enough attention that she can expand it into a feature.
It’s not the first offer from Look At Me Films, which specializes in giving filming projects to new independent moviemakers. They were behind the Sundance short film Sparks, the cult horror flick Rebound, and more recently, The Ice Cream Truck starring Deanna Russo.
You can watch the short on Vimeo On Demand right this second, and it’ll be expanding to YouTube and Amazon tomorrow (Halloween). Invite this guest into your home if you dare.
