Born Again, A Conception of Horror and Comedy

Starting today, October 30th, 2017 Horror filmmaker Jason Tostevin will unveil his latest release Born Again via Short of the Week. The release is a debut release for Jason Tostevin’s production company; Hands Off Productions. Never did the company distribute a film short via online distribution. With the positive feedbacks and many awards and nominations in film festivals, it seemed only logical to drop Born Again for the general audience to appreciate.

Also, Both ‘Til Death and I Owe You will also be available via Hands Off Productions Vimeo channel. These releases serve to commemorate the company’s accomplishment for the online presentation of Born Again.

“So many people have seen it at fests and asked to see it again, or heard from friends they had to see it, we just felt it was right to arrange an online premiere…”

“…five amateur Satanists who have their summoning ceremony go terribly wrong, and accidentally create the holiest holy shit moment ever…”

“We wanted to go back to our ‘80s horror roots when you could get a laugh with your blood splatter…”

“…And we wanted to push some boundaries. I know for sure we were left out of some programs because of the ending.”

Jason Tostevin, Born Again Director, and co-writer
