The new independent horror short Trust Me: A Witness Account Of The Goatman is now playing in select New York theaters, and will be part of a Halloween film festival this weekend.

It was supposed to be a romantic excursion into the woods, but the woman who followed an invitation from her boyfriend for some forested intimacy instead found a pulse-racing experience of a different kind. The legendary Goatman is lurking in the darkness, and her life is now in danger. But what are the exact circumstances here? Is her boyfriend working with the Goatman? Did her boyfriend get devoured by the Goatman or was her boyfriend the Goatman all along? Who do you trust in this story?

TRUST ME is a horror movie about a woman who follows her boyfriend into the woods for a romantic surprise only to find something far more sinister: the legend of The Goatman.

Inspired by witness accounts, TRUST ME is an atmospheric horror movie featuring a new breed of monster – one that fuels our paranoia and forces us to ask: who… or what… can we trust?

Trust Me was funded through Seed & Spark, a crowdfunding platform for filmmakers. It stars Alexandra Bayless and Luke Cook, was written by Leslie O’Neill, directed by Nate Ruegger, and produced by Darius Frye. The film will be part of Nightmares Film Festival & FEARnyc, which happens Halloween weekend…get your tickets at
