Story: "A female director and her crew pick an old Victorian house in the Lovecraft country as their latest shooting location, only to discover the mystical place is haunted by the spirits of three vengeful witches." - This is a photo diary featuring publicity and production photos from this upcoming feature film. Principal photography wrapped in Los Angeles in July 2016.

Irony is our best friend when things are not going our way. And how regularly you’d say things don’t go our way in our lives? More than I could even count at this point. Making movies gives me the chance to purify my soul and to cleanse whatever feelings I may be storing inside my heart and my head. I like grabbing a part of me that is hurting and I like inserting those feelings into my screenplay, even if the project is a comedy and the audience would have no idea about them. I think making films that are personal allows you to exorcise your fear and self-doubt. Making horror films allows you to literally murder such emotions. Yes, “Reel Nightmare” is a hybridized found footage horror feature about a group of filmmakers encountering supernatural forces inside a haunted house, but I’m hoping the audience can read between the lines and enjoy the journey of each of my characters. The general theme of the story is overcoming adversity and the need we all have to prove ourselves to the world (when we don’t really need to). I don’t plan on re-inventing the wheel within the horror genre with this film but I certainly plan to follow the wheel and see what road it takes me down. Personal Statement In an unusual way, I consider every project I create as the surreal version of my biography. I have discovered that the most successful films I’ve made are those which are the most personal to me. I try to write about the world I know and then I set out to create a story I hope everybody who is not like me can understand and relate to. When I have a part of my biography that I feel compelled to share with the world, I stop judging myself and my ideas; and I dare to share them with the world as films. I enjoy horror and comedy as the outlets for my story to come through. In my latest script, a character is asked about his fictional horror screenplay: “So you wrote a story where you kill everyone?” - The character replies: “I guess I wanted to kill the different parts of me standing in my own way.” - You can sum me up with these last words. - Armand Petri, Director
