When I first heard about the movie “Starry Eyes” it made me curious so I decided to check it out. Aside from the climax it seemed less like a horror movie and more like a drama about trying to make it big in Hollywood.
The plot revolves around Sarah Walker (played by Alex Essoe) a young woman who strives to become an actress. In the movie you feel Sarah’s struggle as she fails to find any work along with her isolation as she tries to do it alone. Sarah then discovers an opportunity in the new movie “The Silver Scream” by the production company Astareus Pictures. Though with each audition it becomes clear that something is amiss.
In an interview Directors Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsh explained the movie is based on the hardship they went through trying to make it big. We do see that as more and more stress is built on Sarah though it focuses more on that instead of the actual horror. The climax also seemed random as a supernatural element is added in. If you like to watch Hollywood drama then this movie is just for you. However, for the horror fans out there I wouldn’t recommend it.
