LOGLINE: A student's increasingly intimate line of questioning causes his interview with a local horror host to take a vulnerable turn.
SYNOPSIS: Film student Jackson Weil grows up watching SYNISTER SYNEMA - a weekend horror marathon on local public access. After the channel falls victim to advancements of the digital age, Jackson scores an interview with the show’s quirky queer host, Myster Synonymous. Their conversation takes a vulnerable turn as they discuss identity, fandom, and their futures. What starts as a spooky mockumentary veers into a discussion about creativity, loneliness, and intergenerational queer mentorship.
