"A recovering drug-addict struggles to keep himself alive."
Directed by Dean Merrill & Gary Robinov Written by Erin Enberg
DETOUR was the second collaboration between me and Dean Merrill and Gary Robinov. This film is longer--almost 30 minutes--than our previous film Simpatica. This time we were making it for Damnationland--a showcase of "dark films" that premiere at the historic State Theater in Portland, Maine and then go on tour to various cities around the country. The three of us were in agreement that we wanted to steer away from classic horror and delve more into personal terror. Check out more on Dean Merrill's website.
Brian Chamberlain is a phenomenal actor and dove into this role with passion and grit--he even insisted that he actually throw up in one scene. I couldn't have asked for a better portrayal of my story than what Brian brought to the role.
