Seth A Smith‘s horror The Crescent, which had its World Premiere in the Midnight Madness portion of the Toronto International Film Festival last year, just released theatrically in Canada via Raven Banner and will soon be released on Amazon Prime, iTunes and VOD starting September 4.
In the film, “After an unexpected death in the family, a mother and son struggle to find spiritual healing at a beachfront summer home. All the while, a mysterious force from the sea threatens to tear their souls apart.” It stars Andrew Gillis, Amy Trefry, and Britt Loder.
Smith is a Nova Scotia-based filmmaker, visual artist, and musician (he has also composed the full score for The Crescent, which will be released on vinyl later this fall), adds the site. His films often pop up on the genre festival circuit, where their dark tone and surrealist style set them apart.
