From Ray Russell, fiction editor of Playboy Magazine, and author of horror classics such as Incubus,
Sardonicus and The Case Against Satan, comes Tennessee Gothic, a feature-length horror/comedy
photographed on 16mm film.
Adapted from Russell’s short story, American Gothic, and brought to the screen by multi-award-winning
filmmaker Jeff Wedding, Tennessee Gothic is an audacious look at farm life told through the eyes of Caleb
(William Ryan Watson), the teenage son of a dim-witted widower (Victor Hollingsworth).
When a beautiful young woman 0ackie Kelly) is found bloodied on a country road, a farmer and his son offer her refuge in their home. This living situation quickly escalates from hysterical comedy
to maddening horror once the woman’s true nature is revealed.
Playing on themes displayed in folklore (most notably the ballad La Belle Dame Sans Merci by
John Keats), Tennessee Gothic is at times uproariously funny while maintaining a dark tone throughout, including a healthy dose of debauchery and violence.
