Be it well-known to most horror fans that cult favorite Halloween III: The Season of the Witch’s female lead Stacey Nelkin has been MIA from the horror scene for several years, but she has been anything but forgotten as her fanfare is as strong now as ever. That being said, Nelkin, along with seasoned actress in horror Eva Hamilton (Ruin Me, Death Kiss) has teamed up with their own female-empowered horror motion picture company Mooncats to bring the power of 80s horror back to the fans in a series of films paying homage to the era of nostalgic horror; With the first one up, being THE SHED.
Per the press release:
“The Shed” – a new experience in vintage 35mm style Horror Film, exploring fortified Female characterizations.
Eva Hamilton and Stacey Nelkin star in a new 35mm style short Motion Picture, celebrating 1980s Slashers at their most elevated octave.
The Shed follows Whitney (Eva Hamilton, “Ruin Me”), a struggling escort, as she mitigates the emotional and financial toll of Adult Service work. After seeing an ad for a House Sitter as posted by a Christian Counselor, Whitney pursues an opportunity to house-sit at a luxury log home in the country.
Almost immediately, the eccentric and superficial charm of the advertiser, Barbara (Stacey Nelkin, “Halloween III”), makes Whitney uneasy as the two travel to an obscure location in the idyllic, foliage-lined countryside. After a tour of the house and a speedy departure from Barbara, Whitney finds herself isolated and jumpy in the darkness of the wilderness.
Gradually, Whitney begins to realize that “something here” – is very wrong. After a few glasses of wine and a joint, Whitney is horrified to discover that she is not alone, as she is confronted with a perverse and squalid predator.
As Whitney fights for her life, she slowly discovers a malevolent and devious plan constructed by a desperate and merciless Mother, who will stop at nothing to “feed” her deformed child.
Will Whitney survive the attack? Will she be able to battle Barbara and overcome two deranged perpetrators? Only a fiery, synth-wave-scored climax in THE SHED will tell.
The Shed will premiere in a limited fashion this October (2022) on Vimeo from October 7th – October 31st.
