Veronika

Veronika

‘Veronika’ tells the story of a complicated relationship between Veronika and Sam. Our project draws its style mainly from the drama/horror genres, creating a story that seeks to keep audiences in a state of constant paranoia and unease. Unsure of what to believe the supernatural and mystery creep into every aspect of the story, that is both devastating and twisted in equal measure.

The main inspiration for ‘Veronika’ stems from ‘Black Mirror’, ‘Gone Girl’ and ‘Let the Right One In’. The Swedish horror/romance is aligned stylistically with what we are attempting, both have lots of dark scenes that are uncomfortable to watch, but at their heart, both films are extremely compelling and seek to tell real, human stories, about needs and desires being in constant conflict.
