If you had said the name Daniel Myrick not a month ago, I would have laughed. If his name doesn't ring a bell think Blair Witch, but after watching his latest film (with very low expectations) The Objective I was pleasantly surprised, it was actually a great film! So when I ran across this bit of news last week, that Myrick would be Executive Producing The Presence, which is directed by Tom Provost, and read the outline and synopsis, I though this has some great potential. The Presence has some interesting production ideas: The first third of the film is largely without dialogue and they say that "the unusual use of darkness will create a movie with a very distinctive look". It's basically an old fashioned ghost story with an updated style. "Set in an old cabin isolated deep in the back-rivers of an unknown locale, a man lives a desolate, lonely existence. No electricity. No indoors plumbing. No means of communication. When a woman arrives at the cabin for some time away from a troubled marriage, we discover the man is actually a ghost. As she sets up house in the cabin, he becomes creepily fascinated with her. The woman initially has no idea the ghost is watching her. As time passes, however, she begins to suspect the other presence in the cabin; her fear builds as unexplained events begin to occur and as the ghost stalks her. The unexpected arrival of the woman's husband initially reduces the woman's fears, but the extremely jealous ghost begins to stalk the husband as well, causing the woman further suspicion and alarm. As the hauntings escalate, the ghost himself becomes frightened as otherworldly whispers -- audible only to the ghost -- ominously fill the cabin. Soon, another dark presence appears. This powerful presence, a malevolent figure dressed all in black, begins to wreak havoc on both the ghost and the couple." The film stars Mira Sorvino and Shane West along with Justin Kirk, Tony Curran, and Muse Watson. Storyboards after the break.
