VIDEO DIARY OF A LOST GIRL

by Lindsay Denniberg. 2012. 96 min. Guest curated by Cristina Cacioppo.

The feature film debut from writer-director Lindsay Denniberg and co-writer Chris Shields, Video Diary of a Lost Girl is a neon-soaked dreamland that combines a love for genre film history with a gorgeous handmade aesthetic.

Louise (Pris McEver) works in a video store. But she’s also a demon. A descendent of biblical demon-mother Lilith, Louise fulfills her predestined obligation to have sex with a man — and then kill him — every full moon. When she meets Charlie (Chris Shields), a reincarnated partner from her past, Louise struggles to not do what she does best.

Meticulously crafted with the use of repurposed art materials and green screen, Video Diary is a valentine to the VHS aesthetic and an exploration of personal themes via the guise of body horror. The movie was influenced by everything from Liquid Sky to Rockula, from Heathers to Dead Ringers, resulting in an absurdist, experimental horror-comedy that’s genuinely funny, beautifully grotesque, and many years ahead of its time.

Star Pris McEver will be in-person for a Q&A!
