If you’re a regular reader of Critical Popcorn, then you’ll know we love an indie project and ones that span both original ideas and different perspectives. Today we wanted to highlight the intriguing Starfish, written, directed and composed by A.T. White and starring Virginia Gardner with a supporting cast which includes Christina Masterson, Eric Beecroft, Natalie Mitchell and Tanroh Ishida. Here’s a little background and watch the super trailer just below.
When a mysterious signal from an unknown dimension summons the end of days, it appears as if only Aubrey (Gardner) is left on earth. Trapped in the apartment of her recently deceased best friend, the only clue she has is a single cassette left behind after her friend’s death, labelled: “THIS MIXTAPE WILL SAVE THE WORLD.” Thrust into a mystery orchestrated by her friend and stricken with grief, Aubrey begins to piece the clues together, uncovering a series of tapes all with pieces of the mystery signal…
We love this one already:
STARFISH is produced by We Are Tessellate, Spellbound Entertainment and 3ROUNDBURST Productions. It had its World Premiere at Austin’s Fantastic Fest and had a limited theatrical release in the US, and will land on VOD May 28th.
