Two-Headed Beast, Directed by Nate Southard (Texas) - Siblings Marissa and Marcus believe some strange things, and they can't wait to teach their new friend Sullivan all about them. Mom will be home soon, but there's still time to learn and play. Two-Headed Beast came from some strange fever dream: a desire to make a horror film that explored the concept of belief and what people will do in the service of those beliefs. I wanted to explore strange family dynamics and ask questions about nature versus nurture. And I wanted there to be a dance sequence. In many ways, Two-Headed Beast is a community effort. With a crew made almost entirely of fellow film students from Austin Community College, it is the product of a group of friends sweating for forty-eight hours in a cramped house during a Texas July. Together, we made this short that is at turns disturbing, thoughtful, terrifying, and hilarious.
