As part of Mystery Weekend 2017 in Manzanita, the Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will screen the Portland-made independent feature film “Ekimmu: The Dead Lust”.
On a cross-country trip home a young couple make a late night stop in the unassuming town of Briar Creek. There they stumble across a mysterious girl lying along the dark roadside, with evil lurking waiting, planning, and plotting inside her.
When the two girls find that they are somehow psychically connected strange things begin to happen, and it’s only a matter of time before they can’t control the inevitable.
The following days will lead them to question everything, from their own existence to whether or not they have somehow opened a doorway to evil. The answers can be found in only the darkest of places, where the sins of the past become the sins of the future.
Shot in Portland and Colton, Ore., the film was written and directed by Andy Koontz, and stars Jeff Argubright, Carissa Becker, and Chloe Francis. Released in 2017, it lasts 74 minutes.
