Award-Winning Short “Water Horse” Premieres on Omeleto


Homebody Pictures and Pineapple Pictures are excited to announce the award-winning horror short film WATER HORSE is available to watch online on Omeleto!

Starring Charlotte Rea, Darren Bailey, Lilith Hurley, and Joe Covell, WATER HORSE depicts the anxiety of motherhood through a nightmarish lens. It has screened at prestigious genre festivals all over the world, including Fantastic Fest, Beyond Fest, Boston Underground Film Festival, Final Girls Berlin Film Festival, and many more.

WATER HORSE is directed by Sarah Wisner and Sean Temple, a married writing and directing team committed to telling character-driven genre stories with personal and socially-conscious themes. Inspired by Scottish folklore and Sarah’s own dream, an abandoned boat interrupts a family’s idyllic lakeside retreat, swiftly spiraling a mother’s perception of reality into a dread-laced nightmare.

“With a run time under 8 minutes, Wisner and Temple are confident with their voice, utilizing every frame to linger, watch and frighten. While its visual style could be pulled from a variety of existing references, the recent audience interest in ‘prestige/elevated horror’ that favors mystery and crisp, monumental horror images such as the ones depicted here make this directing duo and exciting team to watch.” – Chloe Leeson, Screen Queens
