Virginia Gardner, star of the hit Hulu show Marvel’s "Runaways" and last year's Halloween, leads the upcoming apocalyptic cosmic horror Starfish, which will be screening in Columbus March 20th and Cleveland March 21st with director A.T. White in attendance.
In Starfish, a young woman suffering from the death of a close friend. When a mysterious signal from an unknown dimension summons the end of days, it appears as if only Aubrey 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 friends death, labeled: "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. Along the way, progress is impeded when monstrous creatures begin to overrun the world and enclose in on her. Aubrey is forced to fight off the encroaching creatures and move beyond her own crippling grief in order to find the remaining tapes. But will completing the signal save the world?
Director A.T. White (part of the popular UK band Ghostlight) composed the captivating score, while the film’s soundtrack features songs from Sigur Rós, Sparklehorse, Why? and more, creating a unique audio landscape that matches Starfish‘s apocalyptic world.
Starfish is written and directed by A.T. White and produced by We Are Tessellate, Spellbound Entertainment and 3ROUNDBURST Productions. The film also features supporting performances from Christina Masterson ("Power Rangers Megaforce"), Eric Beecroft, Natalie Mitchell and Tanroh Ishida. Starfish will be released on VOD May 28th by 1091 Media's The Orchard.
