AOF FESTIVAL PRESENTS SCREENING OF JAMES HOWARTH FILM “INHABITANT” A NEW SCI-FI THRILLER DISTORTS REALITY
Los Angeles, CA...On Thursday, July 28, at 5 p.m., the AOF Festival presents a screening, Best New Director nominee James Howarth’s Inhabitant. It will be held at the Regency Theatre, Theatre 5 at 1003 East Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA. The film directed by James Howarth “Inhabitant filmed in Los Angeles, CA and partly in Sydney, Australia. “Inhabitant: is the debut feature film directed and written by actor/filmmaker James Howarth, produced by Jimmyjack Films and Leader Motion Pictures.
The film was shot on just about every HD format on the market giving the film its unique texture portraying the delusions of a schizophrenic mind. The film breaks new ground in its careful recreation of the coveted “film look” – a result of skills and techniques Howarth spent his career cultivating. The result is an edgy psychological thriller that exhibits cinematic flair and production value far beyond what audiences would expect.
In producing “Inhabitant,” Howarth utilized "Method" acting and "Raw" un-rehearsed acting techniques. The performances of co-stars Edward Lee Johnson (as the police interrogator) Eva Swan (as Marks psychologist and love interest Abby Myers) Jean Louise O'Sullivan (in the role of love interest Alana) Brandon Fisher (as Mark’s devious best friend Ray) and Mika Walter (as Jimmy) Ingrid Bloom (as Stacy) and Lana Troy (as Carol) are mesmerizing and effective in heightening the raw emotion of Howarth’s own performance as Mark.
“Inhabitant” is currently hitting the film festival circuit in 2011. Audiences who have previewed the film have drawn comparisons to the cult sleeper hit, “Donnie Darko,” noting in particular the dark quality of the film, along with the interplay between psychological and supernatural elements. Similarly, the protagonist hangs onto his sanity by a thread; the intrigue lies in how far he can be pushed before his internal struggle runs over tragically into the external world.
A Horror Film critic wrote that the film “Inhabitant” is a great film, and I recommend it. I’ll be watching for more films by Mr. Howarth.‘Damn. If only I had done that first. I have a feeling he’s going far.
Audiences can expect to see “Inhabitant” at select film festivals nationwide. To view the trailer for “Inhabitant” and to learn more about the film, visit www.inhabitantmovie.com and https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=103948949704158
