The characters in the period chiller have differing views on discoursing with the dead.
Below is a first-look clip from BROOKLYN 45, the latest fear feature from writer/director Ted Geoghegan (WE ARE STILL HERE, MOHAWK). It world-premieres this Sunday, March 12 and then has follow-up screenings March 14 and March 17 at the SXSW Film Festival, ahead of a Shudder debut later this year. Anne Ramsay, Ron E. Rains, Jeremy Holm (THE RANGER), veteran actor/filmmaker Larry Fessenden, Ezra Buzzington (MOHAWK, THE HILLS HAVE EYES) and Kristina Klebe (HALLOWEEN, DON’T KILL IT) star; the synopsis: “Friday, December 27, 1945. Five military veterans gather in the ornate parlor of a Brooklyn brownstone. Best friends since childhood, they’ve reunited to support their troubled host–but when his invitation for cocktails turns into an impromptu séance, the metaphoric ghosts of their past become all too literal. Trapped in their host’s lounge, the Greatest Generation now find themselves put to one final test…with their only route to freedom being more bloodshed.”
