1230 Hopewell Road - Full Trailer

Hello @Echovoid_52 and welcome to our community! :)
Can you tell us more about the story behind this trailer? Will your project be a feature film or a short film in the future?
 
It's all fun and games until someone gets missing, injured or murdered. Seems like a horror story with a lot of potential and a plot twist.
 
Thanks for the feedback everyone. Yes, it's a film about two investigative journalist making a documentary on a local urban legend and a troubled boyfriend at the deadly center of it all. It's very much inspired by BDSM industrial subculture, films like Tetsuo The Iron Man, and Urban Legends I I grew up with as a young child in Pennsylvania. The porn scenes are essential as they fit with the themes of the film.

Understood! :D When will the film be ready? Also, you can post Production Stills on our forums as well

Are you a student? :) You have a very good approach and I could see turn into a Thesis film.

I'm actually a 29 year old college graduate who only ever took a video app course once in highschool. I learned to write, direct and editing myself.

If you mean a full feature that would be an awesome idea. The current cut is only 15 mins a lot shorter than I predicted.
 
I just finished watching the movie :) Overall, the plot was original. You should label it 18+ though.
I will go on with a few pros and cons that I noticed during my watch time (I watched it twice to be sure)
Pros
The soundtrack is on spot, I like that
The plot is original - I like how you used the old vcr cassette to tell some of the story - the edit is also on spot. One question...since that character died in 2014, meaning the content on the cassette is filmed after 2014, why did they not just use a smartphone or a modern camera to film it? 😅 Maybe modify the plot from 2014 to 2004 and it is more natural then from this perspective
The costumes are very good as well - and the building from minute 12 is huge
You managed to show the girl's fate without getting so much into what actually happened to her - the expression on her lover's face tells so much emotion
The actors are doing their part very good, too

Cons
At minute 10:21, the syringe had no needle (I looked twice and stopped to check) and then he puts the content of the syringe in her neck. Maybe put a needle for the close up and then try another angle and get rid of the needle for the next part :)
The night scenes are a bit blurry, especially at minute 3 and 4. Maybe try using an external light or a powerful flash light for a better quality :)
 
I like the rock songs that you used. I would like to listen to those songs - how can I find them?
As for the movie, I'm happy you did not go to much into the kink side but rather on the story. I honestly felt what the boyfriend was feeling at the end. Poor guy. In the end, his girlfriend was just a lost kitten who looked for the wrong people. Did the camera man survive? Did he drop everything and run away? Or he died?
 
I would honestly go crazy if I would receive a cassette like that guy did. The killer is very good at playing his role: he is confident, knows exactly what to do and has the right costume. The girl also is very innocent and naive. Nice choice of actors.
