Don’t miss your chance to support an exciting new feature film based on a gothic horror and feminist literature classic of the 19th century.
Eidolon is a horror feature film that puts a chilling modern spin on the classic Victorian horror story, The Yellow Wallpaper. Director Dayna Noffke (Teaser, Soto) and Associate Producer Chris Ethridge (Attack of the Morningside Monster, Haven’s End) describe the tone of the bloody supernatural tale as The Haunting of Hill House meets The Babadook. I don’t know about you, but that’s more than enough to sell me on the idea!
Eidolon is the story of a woman whose relentless pursuit of perfection takes over her life, manifesting in a terrifying supernatural entity who haunts both the halls of her home and the corridors of her mind.
Director (and co-producer/co-writer) Dayna Noffke explains the vision behind the project:
“This film is a true labor of love. We’ve been working towards making this project for several years and believe that this is the perfect time for it to happen, as its themes of loneliness, mental illness, and inner darkness will resonate with audiences living in this pandemic era.”
Noffke is a self-proclaimed lifelong horror fan who has spent the last decade writing, directing, and producing indie short films. This film marks her feature film directorial debut, and she’s assembled an incredibly talented cast and crew to help bring her vision to life.
In addition to taking inspiration from Victorian horror, Eidolon is heavily influenced by modern psychological and supernatural horror films that explore issues of female identity, disability and mental illness, and grief.
Additional sources of inspiration cited include early masterpieces like Audrey Hepburn’s Wait Until Dark to newer fare like The Conjuring, Insidious, and The Apology.
The script for the film was penned by award-winning horror author/screenwriter Can Wiggins and the late Mark Schemanske and stars Amber Chaney (Hunger Games, Walking Dead) and voice actor Sean Polite.
Bryan Redding (Tennessee Two Step, Teaser, Youtube Channel “The Deaf Director” ) has come aboard as Cinematographer.
