We received word recently of a new short horror film under The Witching Season umbrella.
Killer on the Loose, like the The Witching Season framing concept, plays on iconic horror and Halloween elements.
You’ll recognize familiar slasher tropes along with interesting atmospheric flourishes and some twists. See for yourself below.
According to the publisher the work: “explores powerlessness, resilience in the face of challenge and the survival instincts that compel individuals to go on. The series is arranged as a narrative collection, weaving through the cycle of fall and rally. Ibañez shot the entirety of I.See.Dark in vintage black and white, inspired by classic horror films. Building on themes of folklore and witchcraft, Ibañez staged all photos outdoors, particularly in the countryside of his hometown, Barcelona.”
In addition to being published in book form, selections from the work are also being displayed in galleries. These include venues in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and also London.
Below, get just a hint of what’s in store inside:
