MORTAL REMAINSis a “shockumentary” which examines the life of Karl Atticus, a notorious filmmaker from the Vietnam era whose works have been mysteriously purged from cinematic history…with good reason, according to some.
Interviews with historians and horror aficionados – including Eduardo Sanchez, co-director of The Blair Witch Project– suggest that Atticus’s legacy may have been far more sinister than even his detractors suspect.
Since its completion in 2013, Mortal Remains has been screened theatrically at festivals around the U.S., including the Three Rivers Film Festival (Pittsburgh), the American Film Institute(Maryland), Dick Clark Studios(Los Angeles)and the Film Anthology Archives(NYC). During that time it has garnered numerous awards and honoraria.
Written & Directed by Mark Riccheand Christian Stavrakis. Featuring: Eduardo Sanchez, John Amplas, Michael G. Gornick, Chuck Craig, Nick Tallo, Peter Graf and J. B. Destiny. Original Music by Michael V. Cooteand Kevin MacLeod.
