Time To Eat

Posted in

Written/Directed by Luke Asa Guidici; Produced by Johny Wynn

After being sent to timeout, a mischievous boy’s trip to the basement leads to a monstrous revelation.

I’ve always been fascinated by the blurring of reality and fantasy and I wanted to explore that in Time To Eat. I started with the classic childhood fear of the “creepy basement” and then asked the question, “what if there really was a monster?” Then, I put my twist on it. Even though this is a horror film, it’s important that my protagonists are never victims. I like to empower my characters so they can rise above their struggles. Just like the main character—we’ve all got monsters in our basements we need to overcome.
