Two women question each other's intentions while devoting themselves to continuing their recently-deceased professor's controversial work.

A Black Rift Begins to Yawn is a new feature called a "slow burn horror," "a thriller", and a "mystery story" by readers involved in its creation. The film is inspired by the minimalist works of Ingmar Bergman, the colorful strangeness of Paul Morrissey, German Expressionism of the 20's (like Nosferatu and M), and the tension of films like Nagisa Oshima's Empire of Passion and Jacques Tourneur's Cat People.

It's being shot in Idaho between August - November of 2017. We are currently working to raise funds for production.
