Every day during October, the Department of Tangents presents a different short film for the Daily Horror Film Fest. It can be flat-out scary, funny horror, or just plain creepy. And every Monday during the DHFF, we’ll be featuring the films of Andrew J.D. Robinson of WORKOBEY Films.
Today’s entry, A Walk Home Alone, is the second in a four-film arc that Robinson has set in a fictional area he calls D’Arcadia. The first was Sightings, which we presented last week. In that one, two women had just found out there missing little sister had been found, and not in good shape. You may want to watch that one before you continue here.
A Walk Home Alone references the missing woman. “The sister who was victim in the ‘many mysterious local disappearances’ is a statistic in the opening report,” says Robinson, “signifying that there hasn’t been a resolution to perhaps a serial killer terrorizing D’Arcadia.”
Robinson is also planning on making more D’Arcadia films than the ones we’re presenting this month, so you might get to revisit some of these folks. “There’ll be more chances to develop many living characters in future projects,” he says.
This one goes deeper into story details than Sightings. It opens with a radio report about mysterious deaths happening around the city, and then focuses on a woman whose life is falling apart. She is hashing it out on the phone with a loved one, trying to decide how to pull it together. But one bad decision might undo her.
Too vague? Watch the film, silly.
