Explore the haunting fragility of the American Dream in Jason Miller’s debut film, “Ghosts of the Void.
Filmmaker Jason Miller’s inaugural feature, “Ghosts of the Void,” delves into the American Dream, exposing its haunting fragility. A freshly unveiled trailer provides a closer glimpse into the grim horror of the narrative.
Featured on Bloody Disgusting, the film, set to release digitally and on VOD on November 7, 2023, portrays Jen and Tyler’s descent from a life of marital stability, a comfortable home, and promising careers to the harsh realities of financial strain. As Tyler’s drinking exacerbates and his writer’s block persists, debt collectors show no mercy, evicting them from their home and pushing them into their car.
Stressed, exhausted, and overwhelmed, Jen and Tyler seek refuge in a vacant lot, only to have their sleep disrupted by homeless passersby, mischievous local kids, and ominous strangers donning harrowing masks. The trailer introduces the couple at their lowest point, foreshadowing a nightmarish encounter that threatens to worsen their already dire circumstances.
Starring Tedra Millan and Michael Reagan, the film challenges perceptions and offers a glimmer of hope through Jen, but it’s far from an escapism-driven horror entry. Miller’s confident direction ensures a handsomely shot debut that, in reality, devastates rather than comforts.
Produced by Seth Savoy, Mike Ware, and Tony Kamin, with executive producers including Cory Coken, Bryen Hensley, Anthony Marchese, Jamie Vanadia, Edward Weil, Ted Reilly, Mark Glassgow, and Kelly Waller, the cinematography is by Nathan Salter, edited by Brendan Jamieson, and composed by Devin Delaney. “Ghosts of the Void” is a Speakeasy Films production.
