1980s Inspired Dark Horror Comedy Short - THE GREY MATTER
I've got an amazing short film for you to watch today called "The Grey Matter." It's a morbidly funny horror comedy that was directed by Peter McCoubrey and Luke McCoubrey.
The story follows "an office stiff who, after suffering a mysterious injury, finds himself stumbling through a courtship with a coworker… but something strange is afoot. With the romantic guidance of a creature unearthed from his head wound, he finds himself stumbling through an absurd, increasingly unorthodox, and potentially fatal attraction."
The movie was inspired by the genre movies of the 1980s. Peter has this to say in a statement regarding the film:
"We’ve always loved the way they [80s films] often bounced around from horror — to comedy — to enigmatic — to just flat out weird… as well as their inventive use of practical FX. Films like An American Werewolf in London, Return of the Living Dead, Big Trouble in Little China, The Fly, Brain Damage and Brazil all had a level of influence over the film’s initial conception. We wanted to honor the wild, inventive, and playful spirit of those films but at the same time create a film that felt modern, cinematic, and hopefully leave the audience wanting more."
This was such a fun and entertaining movie to watch and I really hope you all enjoy it! Thanks to the directors for sending this in to us!
