Another day, another scare as Ouzo and Blackcurrant screens at Upstate NY Horror Film Festival.

On a sunny afternoon, two old school friends, Jeanie and Esta, take a nostalgic trip to the junkyard where they used to drink as wayward teens. But this place is now tainted by tragedy, and Jeanie makes a horrific discovery when she raises her phone to take a photograph.

Written and directed by BAFTA nominee Nat Luurtsema. A stand-up comedian for eight years, Nat then wrote and starred in short film Island Queen (BAFTA nominee 2014) and Three Women Wait For Death (Best Short – Encounters 2016). She wrote/directed Wyrdoes (Film4’s Shakespeare’s Sister scheme) and directed War Paint, (Creative England’s Emerging Talent Fund). She is developing five features: Annie’s Got Body Issues (BAFTA Rocliffe alumnus, shortlisted for iFeatures); Murder Fans (shortlisted for 4screenwriting and iFeatures); The Clean Up (Film London’s Microwave scheme), an adaptation of Helen Cross’ novel Spilt Milk Black Coffee and horror feature Lake Josephine (current finalist in FrightFest’s New Blood award, giving £750,000 to the winner.)
