Here’s the official trailer of The Crescent, the upcoming artsy horror mystery movie directed by Seth A. Smith based on a script by Darcy Spidle and starring Britt Loder, Danika Vandersteen, Woodrow Graves, Amy Trefry, Andrew Gillis, Chik White, and Terrance Murray:
Plot synopsis: “Following the death of her husband, Beth (Danika Vandersteen), with her toddler son Lowen (Woodrow Graves) in tow, retreats to a seaside cottage at Silver Crescent Beach. The loss of her partner has been emotionally draining, and the added pressures of single parenting have become more than she can bear. To help cope, Beth turns to her art – the abstract printing process of paper marbling. But the work often leaves her reminiscing about her past life. Though the implications of his father’s absence aren’t fully understood, Lowen also feels the loss. He demands constant attention of his mother, acts out, and develops a strange fixation with the ocean. As mother and son attempt to rebuild their bond, a mysterious force from the sea begins to haunt them. Meanwhile, a motley crew of local residents is getting way too close for comfort. Beth can’t take it anymore. She descends further into grief. And in a rash act, fueled by a desire to be with her husband again, she abandons her son and attempts to drown herself in the sea. Lost and alone, Lowen is forced to fend for himself, save his mother, and confront the dark force beyond the ocean’s gate. Directed, edited, co-written and scored by Seth A Smith (Lowlife), The Crescent is a transcendent look at loss, grief and single parenting, told through the entrancing art of marbling and the eyes of a two-year-old. The film is produced by Smith’s long time producing partner Nancy Urich, and stars their 2-year-old son Woodrow Graves. The crew includes cinematographer Craig Buckley, production designer Paul Hammond, costume designer Kathleen Darling and body marblers Brad Lawrence and Frank Terenzi of BL Visuals.”
