Q&A with director David Prior
This is a vaccinated-only screening.
Home / Now Showing / THE EMPTY MAN
On the trail of a missing girl, an ex-cop comes across a secretive group attempting to summon a terrifying supernatural entity.
Released quietly during the pandemic, THE EMPTY MAN is perhaps the most intelligent and terrifying horror film of the last year. To celebrate its brilliance with a bigger audience and to gain insight into the process of creating the film from its director David Prior, Beyond Fest is proud to host this one-off celebration of what will become a firm genre favourite for years to come. – Evrim Ersoy
