“It’s such a different film for us, in terms of style and tone, but that’s what made the project very exciting to everyone involved!” -Daniel Delpurgatorio
Daniel Delpurgatorio and Anthony Williams have joined forces yet again in their latest horror project, Third Wheel. From what we can tell in the latest teaser trailer, the film follows a man (played by Andrew Goetten) and a woman (played by Kristen Magee), who discover that their newfound relationship is being imposed upon by something menacingly pink. The title of the film suggests that a dividing presence is infringing upon their relationship and is there till it gets what it wants. The Third Wheel teaser is visually reminiscent of The Blob (1988) and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978).
Daniel Delpurgatorio who is known for his short, horror film Body(s) (2015) and Anthony Williams, known for his writing on Dark Hunger (2016) have teamed up with FX legend Robert Kurtzman (From Dusk Til Dawn, Tusk, Pulp Fiction). With Kurtzman on the bill, we can expect some dynamic and awe-inspiring monster makeup. A lot of excitement has been built around the continuing trend for 80’s horror aesthetic in modern horror and it looks like we’ll see just that in Third Wheel.
Daniel Delpurgatorio and Anthony Williams discuss how the festival scene has impacted the making of Third Wheel…
“The festival scene has been changing since we first started submitting films years ago and we wanted to make something that fits nicely into the shifting landscape. We wanted to make something short and sweet, with a fun payoff,”
“It’s such a different film for us, in terms of style and tone, but that’s what made the project very exciting to everyone involved!”
Delpurgatorio and Williams will be premiering the film at Celluloid Screams, but if you happen to miss that you can catch Third Wheel at Telluride Horror Show, and Nightmares Film Festival. Head to their site for more information.
