100 feet

Horror often works because of its outlandishness, from David Lynch to Rob Zombie. But there is another level upon which horror works well; the level wherein there might be something supernatural involved, but the gritty realism and focus on character in the story refuses to allow the audience to dismiss the project as simply a “scary movie.” It is in the latter category that you will find most of the films of filmmaker Eric Red.


Famke Janssen stars as Marnie, a woman who kills her abusive husband. Confined on house arrest, hence the title 100 Feet, her sentence sounds pretty easy until Marnie realizes her dead husband's ghost is haunting the house.
