Eduardo Sánchez, co-writer/director of The Blair Witch Project, makes a triumphant, spooky return with the China-set nailbiter Seventh Moon, playing at Maryland Film Festival 2009! Seventh Moon tells the story of a couple of newlyweds, Yul (Tim Chiou) and Melissa (Amy Smart of Crank: High Voltage), who honeymoon in China — but soon encounter mystery and horror lurking behind a “ghost festival” tied to the lunar cycle.
A polished international production that delivers classic thrills in a way few current horror films do, it’s a triumphant thrill-ride from Maryland resident Sánchez, who delivered the worldwide smash Blair Witch Project. As MFF’s Scott Braid writes in the program notes for this film, “With movie theaters and video stores overrun with brainless slice-and-dice gorefests whose every sequel is more repugnant and (if possible) less engaging than the one before, it’s refreshing to see an exquisitely made modern ghost story with genuinely creepy atmospherics.”
Director Eduardo Sánchez will be with us at Maryland Film Festival to host the Baltimore premiere of Seventh Moon. Don’t miss it!
