Review on "Coming Home"

This review from The Global Grit Film Festival has been edited to avoid exposing spoilers...

"Coming Home" is a solid, thoroughly entertaining, self-contained story. The acting, lighting, writing, pacing, and effects were all convincing. This film inspires an amount of intrigue that most shorts really can't manage, and subverts expectations (edited spoiler) effectively.

(More edited spoiler)

In less deft hands, "Coming Home" would have been a disaster. However, you managed to craft an engaging, interesting, and successful thriller. Bravo!

"Coming Home" makes its public premiere at this festival in Miami, Florida on June 3rd! See the details here!

Coming Home is Going Out (to festivals!)

“The Famiy Way: Coming Home”, the short film that is a prologue to The Family Way story, has been completed and submitted to several film festivals around the world.

This story takes place 10 years prior to the The Family Way. It was based on the original opening of the feature screenplay that was eventually cut from the final draft. It is the origin story of Crawford (aka "The Blood Artist") as an angry teenager who begins to lash out against society in the most horrifying ways.

The story also introduces Richard and Sue Cultry, who have been following the news about the murders and are using the case to teach their young son Jeffrey how to identify and track down a killer.

Coming Home stars three actors who are signed on for the The Family Way.  Nicholas Trivisonno plays "Crawford" (although he is cast to play "Jeffrey" for the feature.)   D. Duckie Rodriguez and Lowrie Fawley play their characters "Richard" and "Sue".

Directed by Shiva Rodriguez with cinematography by Scott Sullivan.
