This month qFLIX Fridays will premiere the yet-to-be-released horror film, Lyle, August 28, 7 pm, at the Tavern on Camac’s Ascend Lounge.
What is the worst nightmare that any mother can imagine? The loss of a young child. Seasoned actress Gaby Hoffman (Girls, Sleepless in Seattle) suffers insurmountable grief at the death of Lyle that leads to questioning everything about her life, her relationships, her values, her sense of hope and trust, even her feelings of love. This psychological thriller captures your sense of foreboding. Full of ambiguity, what’s real, what’s imagined, who is demonized, the images and music controls your own emotional and mental state. Embedded with references to other horror films, from Alfred Hitchcock to Stephen King, this horror only gets worse before the film shockingly ends.
Lyle premiered at qFLIX Philadelphia 2015 in July. It was runner up for First-Time Director Award to Stewart Thorndike. This female director conceived Lyle as a “lesbian take on the classic horror film, Rosemary’s Baby.” Thorndike plans to pursue, explore, and exploit the horror genre with her next and future film projects.
Lyle is definitely a not-to-be-missed film and Thorndike is a rising star director.
The Friday evening parties continue to offer drink specials, door prizes, film feedback, and are hosted by Thom Cardwell and James Duggan, founders and producers of qFLIX Philadelphia, all in an informal but inviting way to share movie going with others who love movies, open to the public, free of charge.
We hope to see you at T.O.C. on August 28 for a fun-filled and entertaining evening with fellow film lovers.
