A.T. White’s debut feature Starfish is one of the most puzzling films we saw during last years film festival circuit. It was confounding, beautiful, unsettling, and complex. The film hits VOD May 28, 2019 and we’ve just been given another mysterious new trailer from Yellow Veil Pictures and 1091 Media ahead of the US theatrical rollout.
Our very own Jonathan DeHaan (Hey, wait a minute- that’s me…) called Starfish a “a puzzle box of a story with so many moving parts that it will require a second viewing to fully grasp its meaning.” Read the full review from Fantastic Fest 2018 HERE,
Gardner stars as Aubrey, a young woman suffering from the death of a close friend. When a mysterious signal from an unknown dimension summons the end of days, its appears as if only Aubrey is left on earth. Trapped in the apartment of her recently deceased best friend, the only clue she has is a single cassette left behind after her friends death, labeled: “THIS MIXTAPE WILL SAVE THE WORLD.”
Thrust into a mystery orchestrated by her friend and stricken with grief, Aubrey begins to piece the clues together, uncovering a series of tapes all with pieces of the mystery signal. Along the way, progress is impeded when monstrous creatures begin to overrun the world and enclose in on her. Aubrey is forced to fight off the encroaching creatures and move beyond her own crippling grief in order to find the remaining tapes. But will completing the signal save the world?
