LOGLINE

Isolated in her childhood home, a grieving woman seeks answers to her mother’s disappearance, unaware of the malevolent forces she’s awakened.

SYNOPSIS

It’s been two years since Cassandra’s mother mysteriously vanished, leaving behind a legacy of unanswerable questions. Isolated now at the farmhouse where she grew up, Cassandra idly repeats her daily routines, assuring herself that she is no longer tormented by the strange and sudden loss.

Yet despite her rationalizations, she is increasingly drawn to her mother’s abandoned clothes, cavernous bedroom, and, most mystifying of all, a cryptic journal filled with arcane script and symbols that may contain the answers she seeks.

As she drifts further from lucidity, Cassandra’s growing obsession awakens something from beyond—or is it something from within?—an insatiable spectre that threatens to spirit her away.

CAST & CREW BIOGRAPHIES

Lori Foreman PhotoLORI FOREMAN as “Cassandra.” Foreman made her screen debut in 2019’s supernatural thriller Ens Rationis, playing a darkly comedic role that proved to be a highlight for festival audiences. In The Walls Alike and Madding, she delivers a stark dramatic performance, portraying a lonely shut-in obsessed with her mother’s disappearance. This is Foreman’s second film, and her first starring role.

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

The Walls Alike and Madding is the second in a cycle of short films about loss, grief, and the art of letting go.

Following my last project, Ens Rationis, I hadn’t planned to write another supernatural story. I did, however, want to continue exploring the themes of that film. Specifically, the costs of love as they relate to loss.

An opportunity arose to participate in Portland’s “Lovecraft Under the Gun” 72-hour film challenge, and I was intrigued by the idea of exploring these themes within the genre of cosmic horror. The script was written in less than 24 hours, and the film was shot over two days, during which we frantically worked and intermittently slept on location.

The resulting piece was rough around the edges, but promising enough that after the festival the cast and crew returned for a day of pick-ups, which enabled us to flesh out the story and reincorporate elements that had been cut for time.

I hope audiences enjoy the film as a spooky thriller, and that those who wish to look a little closer find a reflection on the consuming spectre of unresolved grief.
