From the Press Release
Summer Hill Films recently released the full-length feature film “The Luring” on Amazon Prime, Youtube, Google Play, iTunes and other streaming platforms last. The director Christopher Wells, a Long Island native and New York City based filmmaker, has produced multiple award-winning films and is known for his topical dark humor and political commentary.
In this project he packed the film full of hidden messages and unpredictability, as a homage to his college days. He remembers making ultra low budget films and the challenges that came with working within the restrictions they were given. “A good story can be told no matter the budget,” he says. He’s produced multiple award-winning films and is known for his topical dark humor and political commentary.
The movie features the main character, Garret, who tries to recover a lost memory that took place during his tenth birthday at his family’s vacation home in Vermont. Unbeknownst to him, something unspeakable happened; as a result Garrett was found in a non-responsive state by his parents. Psychiatrists call it dissociative amnesia – a loss of memory due to a traumatic event -but Garrett will soon learn some memories reveal things he wished weren’t true. In this surreal psychological thriller, the weird and wonderful takes place as pure evil manipulates the vulnerable. Christopher shot and produced this movie at his old family home in Vermont, on a timeclock right before it was sold.
Christopher prefers making his audience really listen and pay attention to detail as opposed to jump-scares and gore. Hidden messages, metaphors and subtleties lurk underneath the dialogue and imagery. Everything is totally original, even the soundtrack. Every scene has a deeper meaning, even if it’s subtle. “The cast and crew of the Luring had an energy that was contagious. We were all set to be part of something original and not follow the trends,” he says. He hopes people will re-watch the movie again and again and see something different every time.
