Starfish Virginia Gardner A.T. White

A very intriguing trailer has arrived online for writer/director A.T. White's cosmic horror film STARFISH, which stars HALLOWEEN 2018's Virginia Gardner as 

Aubrey, a young woman suffering from the death of a close friend. When a mysterious signal from an unknown dimension summons the end of days, its appears as if only Aubrey is left on earth. Trapped in the apartment of her recently deceased best friend, the only clue she has is a single cassette left behind after her friends death, labeled: "THIS MIXTAPE WILL SAVE THE WORLD."
Thrust into a mystery orchestrated by her friend and stricken with grief, Aubrey begins to piece the clues together, uncovering a series of tapes all with pieces of the mystery signal. Along the way, progress is impeded when monstrous creatures begin to overrun the world and enclose in on her. Aubrey is forced to fight off the encroaching creatures and move beyond her own crippling grief in order to find the remaining tapes. But will completing the signal save the world?

White is in the band Ghostlight, so it's not surprising that a musician would craft a film around a world-saving mixtape. What is slightly surprising is just how visually stunning STARFISH appears to be. It looks like this is going to be one hell of a feature debut.

Couple that with the fact that I really liked Gardner's performance in HALLOWEEN, and STARFISH just became a must see for me.
