Calling all indie horror fans, S & Drive Pictures has announced that writer-director Richard Stringham’s genre film ‘Close Calls’ will be released this Spring.




From the Press Release:

A new kind of psychedelic terror will soon be unleashed onto screens in Spring 2017…

“Close Calls” features a troubled teen girl (Morgan) who is forced to stay home and tend to her crazy grandma after being grounded by her father. But when daddy leaves for a dinner date, Morgan’s paranoia heightens as she starts receiving several disturbing phone calls while dealing with grandma. Between all the phone calls, the drugs she has taken, and surprise visits from some unexpected guests, Morgan now thinks everyone around her is out to kill her. And to make matters worse . . . she keeps forgetting to give grandma her meds.

This upcoming feature-length horror film from S & Drive Pictures was produced, written and directed by S & Drive’s founder, Richard Stringham, who started the independent production company in Sherwood, Arkansas. Vowing to make a retro horror piece that tipped its hat to heroes like Baya, Argento, Hooper, Craven, Kubrick, and Lynch . . . Stringham assembled a local team of Arkansans to force “Close Calls” into existence. He also joined forces with Volumes of Blood creator P.J. Starks, who signed on as Associate Producer for the project.
