Written and directed by John Pata, Black Mold tells the story of photographer Brooke (Agnes Albright, True Detective) and her pal Tanner (Andrew Bailes), who sneak into abandoned, off-limits buildings for the sake of their art and also the adrenaline rush. But when the daredevil pair break into their holy grail – Franklin Hill, a large facility with a history – they encounter a dangerously paranoid squatter (Jeremy Holm, Brooklyn 45) who holds them captive. The longer their attacker keeps them there, the more it becomes clear there’s something else profoundly wrong with the place as dangers surface at the intersection of artistic pursuits and internal sabotage.
You can catch the film on Friday, August 25th at Pigeon Shrine FrightFest.
The film won Best Indie Feature at this year’s Panic Fest in the US, and Agnes Albright was also named Best Actress.
Black Mold is a Head Trauma Production in association with The Line Film Co. and Shatterglass Films. It was produced by Sarah Sharp, Jen Shelby, Robert Patrick Stern, and Iman Sharabash, with Jill Gevargizian, Tony Wash, and Kevin McGrail on board as co-producers.
