"They Look Like People"
Alum Perry Blackshear's thesis film They Look Like People is getting a digital and VOD release March 11th after its LA theatrical run.
The genre-blending psychological thriller quietly took the independent festival circuit by storm last year, winning Jury Awards at Slamdance, IFF Boston, SF Indiefest and Nashville as well as the “Most Innovative Film” at Fantasia.
Made with a cast and crew of friends and family only, They Look Like People follows the reunion of old friends, one of whom secretly suspects that those around him have begun to change into evil creatures, and struggles with whether to protect his only friend from what he believes is an impending war, or from himself. It is described by the filmmakers as “An indie love story about friendship that just happens to follow people who experience some pretty scary things.”
Perry Blackshear’s microbudget debut feature was picked up by Gravitas Ventures for theatrical VOD and digital last year.
After its theatrical run in LA, They Look Like People will be available March 11th on Comcast, Time Warner OnDemand, DirecTV, iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Google Play, and Microsoft Video Store.
