Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.13.16] horror

I wouldn't be surprised to discover that the idea for Harrison Atkins' feature film debut Lace Crater has some seedling of birth drawn from Japanese horror. The concept just seems like something to have emerged from the folks who also brought us a killer VHS, killer sushi and killer hair extensions.

Lindsay Burdge (star of the under rated A Teacher) stars as Ruth, a woman trying to overcome a bad breakup by taking a trip to the Hamptons with some friends.

A night of drinking leads to a sexual encounter with Michael. All well and good except for the fact that Michael is not a regular guy. Michael's a ghost.

You read right. She has sex with a ghost. No big deal. Except Ruth's one night stand leaves her with an STD and the side effects include everything from night sweats which leave her covered in mucous to hallucinations – with the occasional oozing of something akin to black tar.

So lets recap: sex with a ghost, killer STD… how is this not a Japanese horror movie?

I like that the teaser trailer for Atkins' movie doesn't provide a lot of details; just enough to peak interest.

Lace Crater opens theatrically and will be available on VOD (exclusively on FlixFling) on July 29 before expanding to LA on August 5 with a national rollout to follow.
