Bloody Disgusting has your first look at the film in some very NSFW stills, each featuring one of the aforementioned directors as stars!
Fantasia will unveil the world premiere screening of mumblecore icon Joe Swanberg’s recently completed 24 Exposures as part of its Camera Lucida section.

They are currently filming The Guest.
Wingard, a gifted cinematographer who also lensed Swanberg’s Silver Bullets, plays a fetish photographer whose models begin to turn up dead, with Barrett portraying a melancholic cop tasked with investigating him. Swanberg, director of Drinking Buddies and Alexander the Last, previously collaborated with Wingard and Barrett on Autoerotic and the anthology horror hit V/H/S. As an actor, Swanberg also collaborated with the filmmakers several times, playing lead roles in A Horrible Way To Die, V/H/S and You’re Next. READ MORE
