The Velvet Sky

By Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Directed by Dana Pellebon and Pete Rydberg

Welcome to the nightmare of The Velvet Sky. Refusing to raise his 12-year-old son Andrew in a home steeped in paranoia and sleepless nights, Warren steals the boy away to the glowing lights of New York City. Mother Bethany is soon after them, but so is a menacing presence lurking in the shadows and behind closed doors. When Andrew runs away from his father, who will find him first - mother, father, or something else entirely?
