/Film readers and filmmakers Peter and Luke McCoubrey (aka the McCoubrey Brothers) have released his short film The Grey Matter online. The dark horror/sci-fi comedy short played at the Nitehawk shorts festival, the Show Me Shorts Film Fest, the Sidewalk film festival, San Antonio film festival, the Brooklyn film festival and was awarded a Vimeo Staff Pick this month.
The film stars Ebon Moss-Bachrach (Girls, John Adams) as an office stiff who, after suffering a mysterious injury, finds himself stumbling through a courtship with a coworker played by Lucy Walters (Shame, Power)… but something strange is afoot. With the romantic guidance of a creature unearthed from his head wound, he finds himself stumbling through an absurd, increasingly unorthodox, and potentially fatal attraction.
