Filmmaking couple announce upcoming psychological thriller, The Honeymoon Phase, produced by PGC Studios and Fear Crypt Productions
I recently had the chance to speak with actress and SFX artist Chloe Hendrickson. Later this year, she and her husband, filmmaker Phillip G. Carroll Jr., will be shooting an indie feature film called THE HONEYMOON PHASE, which Chloe will also star in.
The film, written and directed by Phillip, is a psychological thriller following struggling young lovers, Tom and Eve, who must endure a 30-day scientific study. The couple are promised a large sum of money following the conclusion of their ‘experiment’, which involves spending a month alone together in research facility housing. What could go wrong?
Chloe and Phillip will also document the behind-the-scenes of THE HONEYMOON PHASE, from scripting all the way through to the premiere. Their intent is to give movie lovers a first-hand look at what it is like to make an independent feature film.
