Empty Nest

After failing to make ends meet as an artist, Alison (Erica Hill) is forced to move back with her parents (Risa Cohen & Ted Powers), who have made radical changes to their small-town home and lifestyle. In seeking to re-connect with her childhood best friend, Mackenzie (Stephanie Moran), she soon finds herself beset by an unknown force and drawn toward a destiny she could never have fathomed.



Bracing, tense, and unsettling against a sweltering summer backdrop, Joe Craib's atmospheric horror short manifests the fears of failure and retreat faced by many young adults in its most terrifying form. Start the Picture is proud to bring it's inaugural film to audiences, beginning with a festival run in 2019.
