Frank Sabatella Delivers A Bit Of Horror And Evocative Storytelling With ‘The Shed’

The Shed has a great concept for a straight line horror flick, but director Frank Sabatella opted for more layered and resonant storyline. That gamble definitely pays off, and during our 10-minute phoner he talked about why, as much as he loved horror for horror’s sake, there are much more cinematic tools (pun intended) to be found in The Shed.

‘Echo in the Canyon’ Review: Jakob Dylan Anchors Immersive Documentary On The California Sound

Director Andrew Slater’s documentary Echo in the Canyon starts off with Jakob Dylan asking Tom Petty who to properly pronounce the Rickenbacker guitar. It’s an amusing opener, as Petty strums a bit before jokingly tells the viewer that the rest will cost too much.
