Renae Goodhew is one of the most in-demand names in independent horror right now, but it’s not for bravura performances, direction or writing. Instead, Goodhew is one of the most in-demand VFX and make-up sorcerers in Hollywood.
This week, audiences will be able to see Goodhew’s stunning, spine-chilling work in the horror hit ECHOES OF FEAR as Brian and Lo Avenet-Bradley’s festival fave makes its way to the big screen.
Playing in LA theaters this month, the award-winning spookfest stars Trista Robinson, Hannah Race, Paul Chirico, Marshal Hilton – and some of Goodhew’s incredibly-crafted creature work!
Echoes of Fear received its World Premiere at the 18th annual Shriekfest Horror Festival, the longest running horror festival in Los Angeles, where it won Best Supernatural Horror Feature. 14 festivals have since followed and the film has won six Best Feature Awards.
