SHATTER takes us on a schizophrenic journey through a twisted mystery
Samera Entertainment offers a preview of Midnight Releasing’s latest tale of terror.
LOS ANGELES, California, USA, March 21, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — New to VOD, a New England town becomes the epicenter of a series of disturbing incidents in SHATTER, a mind-blowing Midnight mystery Releasing and co-writer/director Chris Schwartz.
Bob Strouse stars as Detective Matthews, a modern noir style gumshoe tasked with bringing to light multiple confusing crimes. His investigation leads him to an intense interrogation of the main suspect in the case, a mentally unbalanced schizo named David Willard (Mercer Bristow). As the puzzle pieces start to connect, more and more things start to come undone, leaving our detective at the center even more lost in the convoluted maze. When all is said and done, nothing will ever be the same.
“The story ends up looking like a movie version of a puzzle cube. Just when you feel like you’ve solved the puzzle, you notice that a square on the other side just doesn’t fit. .” ~ Chris Schwartz (co-writer/director)
SHATTER also stars Joseph Veltre, Rod Egan, Scott Geiter, Orris Knepp, CJ Ramser, Julie Ufema. The film’s production was a budget-neutral affair, which forced the filmmakers to get creative in the face of the restrictive challenges. The result is a unique thriller with many clues hidden beneath the surface, making multiple viewings especially necessary and rewarding.
“SHATTER is a disorienting psychological crime mystery that lights a fire, burns in all directions, and ends with a revelation that leaves you sifting through the ashes of sanity.” ~Chris Schwartz
SHATTER takes its hat off to the classic film noir of yesteryear, with its jaded detectives and ambiguous developments. But it also thwarts the homage with modern filmmaking techniques. It is therefore a film of its time with timeless influences, the one that Midnight Releasing is proud to present on its February 2022 list.
“SHATTER is one hell of a mystery that gives the viewer a lot to think about. It doesn’t take long for the movie to turn into something completely unexpected from scene to scene. This style gives the movie a refreshing and different feel. which gives the audience some brain-wracking moments of foreboding.” ~ Darrin Ramage (CEO of Midnight Release)
SHATTER is now available from Midnight Releasing.
