Alyce Kills: one of “15 Scariest” on Variety

alyce-kills-2011

Social Construct Films is thrilled to announce that our feature film, Alyce Kills, was listed as one of “15 Scariest” Halloween Horrors on Variety.

“After impulsively knocking her friend off the roof of a building, an introverted young woman spirals into madness. Actress Jade Dornfeld delivers a tour de force performance as the guilt ridden title character. Her descent into a maelstrom of drugs, sex and psychotic violence is equal parts twisted and tragic…. ‘Alyce Kills’ is a challenging and original work of avant-garde horror.”

SYNOPSIS

Official Movie Poster

GO FAR is a documentary about the life of Christopher Rush, an amazingly inspirational human being who was born with muscular dystrophy. Rather than give up, he defied every expectation and lived a life full of happiness, optimism, and endless accomplishments that most able-bodied people would be proud of. Despite having been diagnosed with a life expectancy of two years, he lived until shortly before his 31st birthday.

During his last few months Chris developed an inspirational program called GO FAR (Goals, Obstacles, Focus, Act, Review) that he planned to teach to others who were disabled, troubled youth, and anyone else who needed encouragement and a better path to reaching their goals, regardless of the obstacles. This documentary will serve as his legacy, a message of enduring optimism and hope.
