Erwin Horror Story: The Visitor


Mrs. Daniels is about to set the final dish on the table so that her small frontier family of four can enjoy a nice Christmas dinner together. But a thunderous knock at the door is about to alter the family's fate forever, and the aftermath will haunt a small Appalachian town for centuries to come.


We really love the style and subject matter of this ambitious short film. The period detail was impressive, as were the performances. We liked the build up of tension and the mystery of the tale. The filmmaker is showing great promise.
