As readers of Daily Dead may know, we've been longtime fans of filmmaker Jill Gevargizian, with Heather Wixson and Patrick Bromley discussing her work on a previous episode of Corpse Club, in addition to sharing her uniquely haunting short films over the years. We're thrilled that Gevargizian is now looking to adapt one of her most popular short films, The Stylist, into a feature-length movie, and she's launched a Kickstarter campaign to help bring this Leatherface-inspired tale to life in the feature-length format!
You can watch Gevargizian discuss her approach to The Stylist feature-length film in the video below, and to learn more about the project and donate to help make it a reality, visit the film's official Kickstarter page! Also, if you haven't seen The Stylist or you want to experience it again, you can watch it below.
"Everyone dreams of being someone else… but for Claire that dream goes from an obsession to a living nightmare. Her job as a hairstylist allows her to move in and out of other people’s worlds, but when the right target sits in her chair, she does more than observe the client’s life – she ends it... and keeps a permanent souvenir. Her lonely life, meticulous method and shocking secrets are suddenly thrown into turmoil when her regular client, Olivia, asks her to style her hair for her wedding."
