We cleared Sundance and Berlin, but now SXSW is upon us, bringing with it a whole slate of new movies that hope to make an impression, and make their mark as ones to keep an eye on for the rest of the year. And in the Midnighters section, “Pod” will be aiming to send a chill up your spine. Today we have an exclusive clip from the film.
Written and directed by Mickey Keating, and starring Lauren Ashley Carter, Dean Cates, Brian Morvant, Larry Fessenden, and John Weselcouch, the film follows estranged siblings Ed and Lyla who head to the family lake house to stage an intervention for their war veteran brother. But when they arrive, they aren’t prepared for what they find. This creepy scene provides a tease of what the pair stumble into, and the nervy tone the picture is aiming for.
“Pod” will have its first screening at SXSW on Monday, March 16th at 11:59 PM at the Alamo Ritz. Watch below.
