If you saw Gilgamesh, then you know that writer/ Richard Chandler has a twisted mind and he makes you work to enjoy his films (in other words, he doesn’t spoon feed you the metaphor). You also know that he’s no stranger to controversy, which is probably why he’s had difficulty getting the ball rolling on his latest endeavor, Witch Hunt.
Witch Hunt is a shortfilm that is currently in production by Boston Film Family, LLC and director, Richard Chandler, and boasts the killer tagline, “One must sometimes send the devil to do God’s work.”
About Witch Hunt:
Witch Hunt is a controversial film touching upon the issues of religious extremism, homosexuality in religion, and satanic cults. The plot revolves around a Catholic priest who is questioning his faith after a botched exorcism. Strange occurrences deriving from a satanic cult have led Father James Costello back to his old nemesis, Sheriff Tormada. Tormada, a self-loathing homosexual, sociopath, and murderer, uses the law to his advantage to make Costello’s life a living hell. Tormada is at war with the idea that Costello made peace with being gay. An unknown association hires a brother/sister team of witch hunters/inquisitors to exterminate the “problems” the town has been experiencing. Writer/director Richard Chandler promises much blood, death, shocking moments, and edgy material that covers both a figurative and literal “witch hunt.”
Witch Hunt stars Graham King, Tony Ramos Wright, Lilith Astaroth, Richard Chandler, Carver Riot, and others.
