The psychological social horror Do Not Reply is set to premiere at the New York City Horror Film Festival on December 6th followed by its screening at Another Hole in the Head Film Festival on December 14th.

The award-winning film from the father-son directing duo of Daniel Woltosz and Walt Woltosz centers on Chelsea, an introverted teen, who falls prey to a handsome young man, Brad. Texting leads to phone calls and she agrees to meet Brad – a social media predator and button-down psychopath – at a Halloween warehouse party. There she is drugged and abducted and wakes up alone, chained, and in a fortified house with other girls whom Brad intends to kill in his virtual-reality-filmed murders.

A chilling social commentary on the perils of digital connections, the fictional film will have one screening at each festival.

Do Not Reply was created to send an important message about social media abductions,” said co-Director Daniel Woltosz, who wrote, directed, and produced the film with his father Walt. “We hope that it will be widely seen, to caution those who are considering blindly meeting someone in person whom they met through the Internet. We’re coming out of a decade of smartphones, social media apps, and dating sites that connect people. But how do you know if the person is who they say they are? We wanted to drive this narrative and pose the question, should you meet a stranger at all, especially alone?

Our purpose was to write and make a psychological thriller that was impactful and memorable, and to potentially save someone from making a serious mistake,” said Walt Woltosz. “While we hear of digital connection success stories, we wanted to create a film that gave a reminder that there can also be danger, and to be smart about to whom you reply and meet.”

 

Jackson Rathbone, Amanda Arcuri, Kerri Medders, and Elise Luthman star.
