 …reinventing Canuxploitation for a new generation.

First Impressions

The trailer for The Sublet starts out with an unexpected angle showing a young couple buying an apartment rental. This dwelling is anything less than magnificent but with financial constraints, the pair finds few prospects in their favor.

Specific scenes that develop illustrate views of the supernatural and mystery. Something lurks within the walls. Is it an entity, or a buried secret? Its presentation seemed misleading since neither had an authoritative personality. The Sublet hints on a psychological attack with Horror aspects comprising ammunition. It will prove fascinating to examine how this fictional work unfolds in its totality. Director: John Ainslie Writer(s):   John Ainslie, Alyson Richards The Sublet

Principal attention in this composition focuses on the acting and camera control. Based on the footage Canuxploitation does not meet the ideal marketing strategy for this film. Absent were the devices of uncoordinated portrayals and poor cinematography.

The Sublet has the structure of a defining indie film. Don’t take our word for it, Ainslie and Richards composed a striking narrative that received the backing honors:
