A 48 Hour favorite, Daisy scooped up both top award and spectator praise as the cringe-worthy thriller drove its 48HHFF peers and audience to applause. Daisy explores the dark, alternative lifestyle a man and what an unsuspecting protagonist is horrified to find behind closed doors. Ruff-ruff!
Lance Parkin, Daisy’s director has a rich taste for the psychological horror genre, “[It] is a varied genre that can be more than just characters seeing things that aren’t really there, or the theme of split personalities, which is what I feel happens all too often with psychological horror films. Psychological horror, at its heart, is simply meant to mess with the audience’s head, and I set out to do just that: make the audience as uncomfortable as possible for seven straight minutes.”
Daisy is certainly memorable for its off-the-wall, jaw-dropping plot that eventually unfolds into a fur-raising climax, “I sometimes hear reactions along the lines of ‘I don’t know what hell I just watched, but I loved it,’ and that always warms my heart. I love knowing Daisy has done its job of making people extremely unsettled, and I hope it will do its part to make Haunted Oaks a wonderfully creepy experience for the audience this year” (Parkin).
Throw us a bone… or better yet a donut, and come see Daisy on Saturday, October first at The Oaks Theater! Doors open at 6:00 pm, and the lights will go down at 7:30 pm.
