Farnaz Samiinia's Horror 'Hellfire' Trailer
Farnaz Samiinia's mew short horror film "Hellfire" reminds me of an episode of either "Tales from the Crypt" or "Tales from the Darkside" (or is it "Monsters"?) but I can't recall which, in that it features an obnoxious on-air radio personality who is hounded by an unsettling caller.
William‘s act is one of an arrogant radio talk-show host from LA whose constant espousal of his inflammatory views and ceaseless hectoring of his callers and listeners reaps equal parts love and hate. His act works, William’s radio show is about to go nationwide. But to his co-workers he’s affable and caring. Only his girlfriend wonders which one is the act and which one is the real William.
Now it’s 90 minutes before the New Year and William his haranguing callers about the idiocy of optimism and celebrating just another day on the calendar. William has all the answers, almost as if he’s the light and the way. Then he takes one final caller. This caller is HELLFIRE.
