17-year-old makes horror film Wakers with the help of Troma

Dylan Greenberg may be just seventeen years old, but she has already had some impressive accomplishments. Not only is she currently the youngest full-time employee at the legendary Troma Films, but she has also completed her second feature (following last year's surreal drama GLAMARUS), the genre movie WAKERS.

An arthouse horror/comedy that draws comparisons to A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, WAKERS does Troma proud by mixing a message in with its horror - in this case, Greenberg's slasher film also deals with consumerism and corporate marketing.

The synopsis:

...a father reads his daughter a dark bedtime story about a girl whose friends are being murdered by an unknown (and seemingly unstoppable) supernatural being. The adults around her are caught up in their obessions with buying useless items they do not need, creating and marketing a substance called Green Shit to the masses, and, in the case of the girl's demented therapist, SEX!! 

Starring Blessing C.S., Blondie keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen, and Troma co-founder Lloyd Kaufman, WAKERS is available for VOD streaming at DisckPictures.

I have to commend Greenberg for already making features at her age, it's always nice to see young people actively pursuing their dreams. Don't waste time, chase your goals and do what you love.
