Short Film: Conventional

"Conventional" Written, Directed and Starring Karen Gillan for Fun Size Horror

"Conventional" is a psychological horror film about the fickle nature of fame.  In it, a B-movie scream queen who has fallen into obscurity.  The only people who pay her any attention at all are the cosplayers who re-enact her break out role as a victim "Axe Wound 2."  They love to see her scream, and she just wants be seen.  When fame is everything, what will one woman do to remain relevant?

The piece is particularly good because its commentary is so on point.  Written and directed by former Doctor Who star Karen Gillan, "Conventional" holds up a mirror to very real issues in the entertainment industry.
"A horror film actress deals with her fall from stardom."
