We here at Horror Society love the opportunity to spread the love on independent films, even ones of the shorter variety. Which is why we’re bringing you a cool short in it’s entirety entitled, The Earth Rejects Him which you can check out down below.
The film is written and directed by Jared Skolnick (The Horror Pages) and stars Ellis Gage, Colin Allen, Jacob Moon, Rj Ramos, Chris Shanahan and Cathryn Shannon.
The Earth Rejects Him, an original horror story written and directed by Jared Skolnick, is a haunting and surreal tale of a young boy who accidentally discovers a corpse while biking in the woods. In a moment of impulsiveness he steals a tooth from the body and buries it in the ground. His return to the burial site reveals a development he never would have expected.
Influenced by the films of Werner Herzog, Terrence Malick, and Guillermo del Toro, as well as the short stories of H.P. Lovecraft, this project promises to be a unique and terrifying experience, an elegant horror film about modern man’s relationship with the unknowable powers found in nature. It is being sold exclusively through Skolnick’s website, skolnickfilms.com, as a digital download or DVD, with a Blu-ray to be released shortly.
