There aren’t too many compromises out there for when you want to watch a horror flick but your partner would prefer a Rom-Com… but one is on its way, thanks to local director, Michael Sangalang.
Killing For Spark tells the tale of a doused relationship reignited by a communal love of — well, murder. Playing on the insatiable urge to stranglehold the next person who tells you about their Instagram following, the film takes a dark yet hilarious turn by soaking some hands in blood.
“The visually stimulating, genre-bending, dark comedy horror short Killing For Spark is if Harry Met Sally during the drug deal in Boogie Nights,” the film’s release reads.
A pitch for the film has already been released, with writer/director Sangalang providing an all-too-real explanation of his inspiration:
Sangalang, along with Producer Lisa D’Alessandro, Director of Photography Brandon Lee, and actors Amanda Wong, Daniel Jeffery, Jaycie Dotin, and Graham Miles are set to show a teaser for the short film at a red carpet event in North Vancouver on November 17 before taking Killing For Spark on a tour of North American and UK film festivals.
The short will be released to the public next summer.
