Short Film Heir Gets Great New Poster

HeirLast year, was proud to be one of the sponsors of the Eerie Horror Film Festival (Erie, PA).  It was a wonderful time, and we can’t wait to do it again this year.  We met many many film makers and saw some very good features and shorts.  Among them was the The Last Halloween from Red Sneaker Media.  It follows a group of children on a post-apocalyptic search for treats (and features some great performances and effects).

Well, Red Sneaker has teamed up with Fatal Pictures and will be hitting the festival circuit with Heir this summer.  Heir is the third and final entry in (what Red Sneaker refers to as) the “Box Cutter Trilogy”.  The short features a very familiar face to horror, Bill Oberst Jr.  You can read more about it in the press release below, and you can check out the new poster as well.  Our friends over at caught up with Oberst, co-star Robert Nolan, writer/director Richard Powell, and producer Zach Green.  You can read it here.

FATAL PICTURES in association with RED SNEAKERS MEDIA is proud to announce HEIR – A touching tale of father & son from the filmmakers that brought you WORM, FAMILIAR, REMOTE & THE LAST HALLOWEEN. This practical effects horror short is a monster movie unlike any other, it is a bleak and fantastical examination of one of societies darkest taboos that aims to stimulate the mind and wrench the gut with equal power.

Starring Bill Oberst Jr (RESOLUTION, CIRCUS OF THE DEAD, TAKE THIS LOLLIPOP) and Robert Nolan (FAMILIAR, BERKSHIRE COUNTRY, SILENT RETREAT), Written and Directed by Richard Powell (WORM, FAMILIAR), FATAL PICTURES’ Zach Green and Richard Powell produced (WORM, FAMILIAR) in association with Marc Roussel and Ron Basch from RED SNEAKERS MEDIA (REMOTE, THE LAST HALLOWEEN). Associate Produced by Seth Metoyer (CELL COUNT, DEADLY REVISIONS, BALLET OF BLOOD), with Cinematography by Michael Jari Davidson (SAVE YOURSELF, BERKSHIRE COUNTY & THE LAST HALLOWEEN), Special Make-Up Effects by The Butcher Shop (FAMILIAR, THE LAST HALLOWEEN), Editing by John Nicholls (SEX AFTER KIDS, THE SWEETEST HIPPOPOTAMUS, THE LAST HALLOWEEN) and Music by Christopher Guglick (REMOTE, HOME, THE LAST HALLOWEEN).

After connecting with a stranger of similar interests online, Gordon and his young son Paul, embark on an ill-fated road trip in which Gordon aims to indulge a secret passion. Before the day ends a horrible truth will be uncovered and a harsh lesson will be learned. Learn more about HEIR at its Facebook page.


I love horror movies, and I have since I was young. My favorite genre is the zombie genre, but it has completely been overdone in the last few years. I'm not a big fan of the horror movie formula, and I love it when a director turns it on its head.
