Karyn Kusama’s horror film “The Invitation” made its rounds on the festival circuit last year, including a world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival, then later screening at the Fantasia festival, Fantastic Fest, and the London Film Festival, among many others. One of the festivals was the Stiges Film Festival in Spain where it won the Best Film prize. Now, “The Invitation” producers Tony Mancilla and Lindsay Lanzillotta have a new thriller that screened at this year’s Stiges Film Festival just this past weekend: Ryan Gregory Phillips’s feature film debut “Shortwave.”

Around this time, Josh and his research partner Thomas (Kyle Davis) have a breakthrough involving a cryptic shortwave radio signal, but something within the signal resonates with Isabel and she begins experiencing hallucinations and visions.
