Writer-Director George J. Fraser’s short horror film Happenstance is now making its rounds at film festivals. On March 15, Happenstance premiered at Chunky’s Cinema in Haverhill, Massachusetts to a sold out crowd along with Patrick Rea’s Pillow Fright,  Andy Stewart’s Ink and other short films.

The 12-minute short stars Kevin Whittier as a serial killer trying to fill the whole in his heart and his stomach with his victims. On a night out the killer stumbles across a damsel in distress (Christina Kostoulakos). Will she be his next victim or will she be much more?

Happenstance is a uniquely twisted love story filled with gore. The short film’s emphasis is on happenstance: something that happens by chance; a series of random and coincidental events that brings to strangers together.

I had the opportunity to watch an advance screening of Happenstance. It’s creative, interesting and one of a kind. The film left me with the distinct feeling that the two main characters were much more than your everyday killer cannibals, that they were some type of supernatural beings.
