Black Fawn Films Unleashes It’s Newest Film With ‘Let Her Out’June 13, 2016
TORONTO (June 13th, 2016) – From Black Fawn Films and Breakthrough Entertainment, and the team behind the indie-hits Antisocial, The Drownsman, and Bite comes Let Her Out directed by Cody Calahan (Antisocial). This is Calahan’s first departure from the Antisocial brand, moving in a different and far more terrifying direction.
In Let Her Out, filmed and set in Toronto, we meet Helen, a bike courier who suffers a traumatic accident. Her recovery is far from normal however, as she begins to experience weird black outs and hallucinations, leading to the discovery of a tumor which happens to be the remnants of a “vanishing twin” that has been absorbed in utero. This leads to Helen’s emotional and psychological state quickly deteriorating as the ‘evil’ side begins to take her over completely.
“Since 2012, I have been immersed in the world of Antisocial. While shooting both the original film and its sequel, I was also preoccupied developing a new idea very different from those two horror/sci-fi films. I was determined to branch out and create something that was as unsettling as possible, while keeping it grounded in an urban environment. The idea was to have a horror movie that, in all its insanity, was happening, right now, just down the street from the viewer. We wanted a viewing
experience as similar to a slow-building anxiety attack as possible. The result is a different type of film that moves incredibly fast, contains some truly bizarre twists and turns, and a ton of WTF moments. We also did not shy away from the movie’s Toronto setting whatsoever, which is a first for us!” – Cody Calahan, Director/Producer
“The filming process was a whirlwind! It opened my eyes to a darker side that I didn’t realize I had access to. At times I felt as if Helen’s mental anguish had seeped in to my own subconscious, but when you finally get to step back and watch some of the playbacks you look and think, wow that was chilling! Having Cody as a director was an immense support throughout this process. Although sometimes neither of us knew where the scene would take us or how something was going to turn out, his vision always remained clear of what he wanted to achieve and how he wanted it to reach the audience. His support and guidance was always reassuring and welcomed especially at times of my uncertainty. “ says Alanna LeVierge, Lead Actress.
