SXSW 2014 Exclusive: Midnighter STARRY EYES Debuts 5 Bone-Chilling Pics

Ryland Aldrich, Festivals Editor

We are pretty big fans here at Twitch of anything Snowfort Pictures cranks out (Cheap Thrills, Jodorowsky's Dune, and Big Ass Spider in just the last 12 months). Pair Snowfort with talented filmmakers Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer (Absence) and the result is sure to be a treat (a fact our inside sources have confirmed).

We have the exclusive debut of five stills from the film for you ahead of Saturday night's midnight premiere (well 11:59pm) at the Ritz. Check them out below and read more about the film on their SXSW page.

Determined to make it as an actress in Hollywood, Sarah Walker (Alexandra Essoe) spends her days working a dead-end job, enduring petty friendships and going on countless casting calls in hopes of catching her big break. After a series of strange auditions, Sarah lands the leading role in a new film from a mysterious production company. But with this opportunity comes bizarre ramifications that will transform her both mentally and physically into something beautiful... and altogether terrifying. In this meta-tale of the extent one will go for their art, Essoe gives a complex, scary, deeply committed performance. From the producer of CHEAP THRILLS and JODOROWSKY'S DUNE, Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch's STARRY EYES is an occult tale of ambition, possession, and the true cost of fame.
