Why We Will Win

 

Follow Her is a fresh, new concept that will jump-start a whole series of these films. It’s clever, well-written, unique, scary, heart-felt and deeply disturbing posing a question of morality around: who the bad guy really is. The true horror of the film is anyone watching can easily see themselves in the situation.

Our film will deliver the realism, production value and level of character depth of much higher-budgeted theatrically released comparable films. The relatability of the characters and their relationship, along with a dedicated cast & crew, will make for a well-executed film.
