Description

The second feature film from Dylan Greenberg! The film is about a rebellious young girl (played by newcomer Blessing C.S.) who lives in a dreary, black and white version of New York with her religious fanatic mother. After trying an experimental new drug given to her by the mysterious "Cultural Olympiad" she finds herself in a vivid, colorful fantasy world - but with one catch. As she and her friends enter the hallucinations, they begin to drop off, one by one. Is it the drug killing them - or is there something more sinister at play? As the dark force causing these fatal mishaps begins to manifest itself into a living being, Blessing's mission becomes stopping it - or him - at all costs. Shot on a nearly nonexistent budget, Wakers features an exceptionally talented cast and crew. The film includes horror legends Lloyd Kayfman, (director of the Toxic Avenger) and Robert Pritchard (Class of Nuke 'Em High), arthouse icons Reverend Jen (Lord of the Cockrings, Terror Firmer) Scooter Pie (Satan Hold My Hand) and Darryl Lavare, (Electra Elf). The film is narrated by and features Matt Katz-Bohen of the bands Blondie and Daddy. "Wakers" also showcases many up and coming queer actors and artists, as well as an original song from King Missile's John S. Hall.
