[SHORT FILM REVIEW] 'THORNS' LEAVES YOU VULNERABLE • DIS/MEMBER

DIS/MEMBER reviews THORNS out of Chattanooga Film Festival!

"Sarah Wisner and Sean Temple write and direct THORNS and make it feel like an urban legend or the making of a campfire-type tale played out in front of you. You don’t know where it will lead. I watched it twice and was shocked by how effective it was in giving me a sense of dread within the five-minute runtime."

THORNS carries a vulnerability to it that people can exercise brilliantly or stumble with, and for THORNS, it exceeds with its the landing and nails it.

We had hoped to use this update to tell you all how excited we were to be traveling to Vermont next week to shoot THE THAW. Over the past few weeks we've been heavy into pre-production and have had so many exciting developments with our team as this project was really coming together. Unfortunately, given the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19, our timing is not the best. We are now making the call to reschedule THE THAW for next winter.

We know this is not the news any of you want to hear. Our hearts are a little broken today. The most amazing community has formed around this film and the last thing we want is to let you down. But our first priority is the safety of our set, our film community and the communities in which we live and work, and the experts are saying in all cases the best thing to do for now is to stay home. We want to assure you that this film WILL be made when the snow returns.

In the meantime, please consider staying home, limiting close contact, and frequent handwashing. We can all be a part of slowing the spread of this virus and keeping our hospitals, doctors, nurses, and caregivers from becoming overwhelmed, which will save lives.

Please take care of yourselves and each other. We encourage you to make your plans with consideration for not just yourselves but those most vulnerable among your friends, families, and communities. Much love and see you soon.

Sarah, Sean, and THE THAW team

Sarah wrote Ruth for Emily and we're so excited to bring THE THAW to life with her. FYI, ALTER is releasing LVRS online on February 12th!!! Watch it immediately. It's one of my all-time favorite short films. Thank you again Miguel Rodriguez . This collaboration truly wouldn't exist without all the hard work you do to make Horrible Imaginings a reality.

We are so excited to announce we are filming THE THAW at Lyndall Heyer and Scott Dorwart's incredible home in Stowe, Vermont!

The first time we visited this house we were blown away. Scott has spent his life collecting 19th-century houses in New England and rebuilding them for clients. This incredible location is three different structures that he designed to be one house that his family could call home. He meticulously followed 19th-century customs in his recreation and it really feels like it's from another time. This house is Scott's art and we are so humbled and excited to capture Lyndall and Scott's beautiful home in a film that takes place in the time period that inspired its creation. Thank you, Scott and Lyndall!

THE THAW - Vermont's Frozen Hill Folk

Have you ever heard of Vermont's frozen hill folk? According to Vermont legend, poor families would give their elderly a potion that would allow them to survive the harsh winter in a state of frozen animation, to be awoken refreshed in the spring. But what if the process doesn't go as planned? What if the weather doesn't cooperate? What if your family came back... wrong? Learn more about this chilly folk tale at THE THAW's Seed&Spark campaign!
