Shot around Austin at locations including the Minimax Crestview and the 29th Street Ballroom, it stars Jonny Mars (director of America's Parking Lot) and Heather Kafka (Lovers of Hate, Saturday Morning Massacre). As for the soundtrack, Corey Mitchell – co-organizer of the upcoming Housecore Horror Film Festival – was the metal consultant, which explains why the short features the none-more-black stylings of Vesperian Sorrow, Horned Almighty, and Pallbearer.
