Agnation, the feature film debut of writer and director Dan Swift will be premiering at Motor City Nightmare on Saturday April 23rd at 8:45pm.
Agnation is the story of a freshly minted real estate agent who along with a close friend buys a house sight unseen at auction for a quick flip to cover the costs of her sick mother’s medical expenses. Things take a turn for the worse when the run into the previous owners who have a pressing family need of their own.
Agnation is described as a gritty, fast paced, brutal, old school blood bath. It harkens back to the great shocking social commentary filled independent horror films of the 70s but is paced for a modern movie audience.
Filmmaker Statement – Dan Swift
I have wanted to make movies for as long as I can remember, and when I finally took the chance, I knew exactly what I wanted to make–a throwback inspired horror movie in the spirit of the great indie films of the ‘70s that were highly entertaining, shocking, and often wrapped in social commentary that was compelling to a modern audience.
