Come see the world premiere of FANATICO at the historic Clinton Street Theater!


When students moonlighting as sex workers start being murdered at a Catholic boarding school, the new girl with strange visions must try to uncover the truth.

FANATICO is a campy horror short, tackling themes of religious corruption and violence against the sexually liberated. Originally inspired by Italian horror of the 1970s, the film features hyper-stylized visuals, authentic vintage costumes, and a variety of gory practical effects. The film also features an all-original score, original foley, and an original hand-drawn title design. With a female director, producers, cinematographer and more, we hope that the femme influence shines through in the final product.

CONTENT WARNING // graphic violence, gore, violence against sex workers
