‘Scars’ Strives To Leave Its Mark In Horror

‘Scars’ Strives To Leave Its Mark In Horror

Red Rock, Ontario, Canada

Based on ‘A Solution to Sadness’, written by Dave Dubose and screenplay by Dee McCullay, ‘Scars’ is a short paranormal horror/drama by indie filmmaker Dee McCullay. ‘Scars’ follows a lone girl named Faith Beckett who struggles to keep afloat and deals with psychological issues, such as depression and cutting. She is about to find out there is no solution to sadness at the edge of a blade. Based on a short horror story from writer Dave Dubose and adapted into a screenplay under the name ‘Scars’, it is the third short horror film in rapid succession from Thunderstryker Films, led by Dee McCullay.

“Dave came to me with this extraordinary story and I knew it would be a great short film, as I had just finished Border Patrol film and had time for another film; and I knew this was going to be different from the others,” says McCullay. The film deals with depression, anxiety, self harm, its effects, choices and the paranormal. Using first time actors, some of which were very last minute, and a skeleton crew, “I believe we have made something quite special and with all the posts lately on social media about suicide prevention and depression, it looks like it’s coming out at just the right time, and I expect it to be well received.”

Dee has covered multiple positions in the film, such as screenplay, location scout, casting, producer, director, cinematographer, ADR, Sound FX, sound design, VFX and editor, and is continually striving to create that creepy ambient undertone of the film and the final quality he strives for. Dee stated “I don’t see me stopping any time soon as I push to be the man in Canadian Horror for 2017.”
