Marina Antunes [Celluloid 10.30.14] horror

It's a common conceit for a movies about Hollywood: bright eyed, naïve woman moves to Hollywood, works a job waiting tables and going on auditions before either giving up on her dream or "making it." Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer's new film Starry Eyes looks at the dark side of the Hollywood dream.

Newcomer Alex Essoe stars as Sarah, the aforementioned bright eyed wannabe starlet. She's going on auditions, not really booking jobs and then she gets the call back that changes her life. Whether that's for the better or worse is yet to be seen.

Pacts with secret societies or cults, weird transformations and god knows what else plagues Sarah before she's reborn as a star. Or at least I think that's what happens. Either that or she emerges from the cocoon as a monster. Either way, this is looking mighty fine.

Starry Eyes has been making the festival rounds since its debut at SXSW. Look for it on VOD and in limited theatrical release on November 14.
