I can't speak for Chris, but I'm stoked to see what Maude comes up with for her feature debut. All of her shorts have that one moment that skeeves the audience out. Given a longer runtime to play with, I know she's capable of crafting unnerving, visceral horror that's going to soil some shorts and cause monocles to fall out at an alarming rate.
In her own words, here's the synopsis for Dys:
A strange disease is plaguing the city; classes are cancelled, businesses are closed, all is under a state of emergency. What at first seems like a normal flu quickly leads to blind rage and cannibalistic behavior. Narrowly escaping contamination, Eva and Sam, a young married couple, are forced to barricade themselves in their high-rise apartment despite the palpable tension between them. Now forced into isolation in their small living space, they struggle with their own frailty in a world that can only offer the worst horrors imaginable.
Like any independent project, this one is going to need all the financial help it can get to get to the finish line. Below is Maude's personal plea to reach deep into your pockets and duct off the old checkbook to help make DYS happen. Any of you that can listen to her Quebec accent and not be moved to pitch in a few bucks are probably puppy hating communists that hang around playgrounds in trench coats hoping to
diddle children. This clip includes a brief, two minute teaser for the film as well.
Seriously. Donate you cheap pricks.
