A Thousand Cuts
USA, 2012, 85 Minute Running Time
World Premiere
Topics: Drama, Horror, Thriller
Program: World Cinema
Language: English

In this taut thriller from Coachella Valley-based filmmaker Charles Evered (Adopt a Sailor, PSIFF 2009), a hot young director known for his hugely successful ‘splatter’ films finds himself trapped in his house with a man who has a violent grudge against him. Frank Bennet (Michael O’Keefe - Frozen River, Michael Clayton) wants revenge on the moviemaker for the death of his daughter in an incident inspired by the director’s first film, “A Thousand Cuts”. The tension is ramped up several notches when it turns out that Bennet has kidnapped the director’s younger sister, Melanie, with the intention of repaying him in kind. Well-known local producing team Jim Casey and Kim Waltrip, who previously collaborated on 2010 PSIFF favorite Expecting Mary, here put their flair for high production values and slick pacing in the service of an altogether different genre, and director/cowriter Evered proves himself eminently capable of tightening the screws just when you think that things can’t get any more intense onscreen.

Director Charles Evered, Cinematographer Shawn Dufraine, and Producers Kim Waltrip and Alethea Root are all expected to attend both screenings.
