Andrew Getty — grandson of J. Paul Getty — sank an estimated $4 million to $6 million of his own fortune into the horror film, which he obsessed over right up until his death in 2015.
Now released in the U.S. available on VOD and DVD, the psychological horror stands out in no small part because of its somewhat protracted production (almost 15 years), and also its director: a Getty oil heir who died at age 47 before seeing the film completed, becoming another chapter in his family’s tragic history.
The story may seen standard genre fare: a mentally challenged boy has his dreams haunted by demonic creature who orders him to embark on a murderous rampage, collecting the bodies in his basement.
But for Andrew Getty — grandson of J. Paul Getty — his first and only feature wasn’t just a passion project; it was something borne from his own powerfully twisted nightmares.
