"8" in Night Visions

 Poster for 8 is designed by Henna Pekki.

After one and a half years of technical, bureaucratic, financial and logistical battles, uphills and headwinds, psychological horror film 8 is finally finished. It is part of the thesis work of four students in TAMK School of Art and Media. The film premieres with style in Night Visions festival, the biggest genre film event in Finland.

8 will be seen along the feature film Red State on

Friday, October 28th at 21.15 in Kino Maxim (Helsinki).

Night Visions writes:

"8 is a psychological horror film about people who have to relive their most traumatic memories in a cave that projects the human subconscious. The shadow of David Lynch lingers behind the beautiful images of the director Miro Laiho’s original story, quite unlike anything the feature length Finnish productions of today have on offer."
