“People Eater,” SNEAK PEAK PREMIERE, before Poltergeist!
‘People Eater’ is a comedy-horror short filmed in and around Downtown Suffolk. While quarantining in Suffolk, director Henry Luzzatto and star Michael Luzzatto decided to make a film about the horrors of being stuck at home with your family. With a DIY, no-budget production, “People Eater” shows what you can create with your hometown scenery, a patient family, and lots of fake blood.
A young family are visited by ghosts in their home. At first, the ghosts appear friendly, moving objects around the house to the amusement of everyone. But then they turn nasty and start to terrorize the family, culminating in the kidnapping of the youngest daughter, Carol Anne.
The cast includes Craig T. Nelson, JoBeth Williams, Dominique Dunne, Oliver Robins, Heather O’Rourke, and Zelda Rubenstein. The film is rated PG and has a running time of 114 minutes.
