FILMMAKER SANDY COLLORA made quite a name for himself with the classic 2003 “fan film” Batman Dead End, and he’s been churning out quality work as a writer, producer, director, effects artist, and just about anything else one can do on a film set ever since. So it’s no surprise that Collora’s latest project, a short monster movie featuring wonderfully old-school practical effects, is garnering lots of attention.
The film is entitled Shallow Water, and it was shot as a proof of concept for a planned horror/sci-fi anthology featuring a wild array of creatures. And considering how well this film stands-up on its own—tense, well-crafted, and loaded with monsters—I’m pretty excited about its prospects for a feature.
