SUCKER 
CURRENTLY IN FESTIVALS

Sucker is a short horror and was directed, written and produced by Switchblade. 

In a twisted story of co-dependence, a pair of estranged sisters are pitted against each other by an abhorrent leech creature that uses its mind-controlling influence to puppeteer them from the inside out.

Will the sisters find common ground before it's too late?

SUCKER reunites the team behind Retch, bringing you a full body experience, using practical effects with deadly sound design and a killer score!

**Currently in the 22/23 festival circuit, including:
FrightFest // Screamfest LA // BiFAN // BIFFF
