In this third feature, young writer/director James M. Hausler brings us a twisty little thriller called KALAMITY. Starring the criminally under-employed Nick Stahl (SIN CITY, BULLY), the film begs you to ask, "do you know who your friends are?" Well, do you?

The film follows Stahl's Billy who, "haunted by memories of his ex-girlfriend Alice (Beau Garrett)...returns home to Northern Virginia seeking solace from old friends. But what he finds there is more disconcerting than comforting: his best friend Stanley (Jonathan Jackson) has become unstable, mysterious, and withdrawn from those around him. Billy teams up with another old friend, Stanley’s roommate Christian (Christopher M. Clark), to find out what’s going on, and as they probe Stanley’s recent activities, their friend’s behavior seems more and more bizarre and frightening. The discovery of blood-stained evidence among Stanley’s possessions pulls them deeper into their friend’s nightmare - and eventually leads to a violent confrontation that not everyone will survive." Check out a bigger version of KALAMITY's Saul Bass-esque poster after the break, along with three stills from the film!

KALAMITY opens in New York and Los Angeles on October 22 and will later expand to other markets.
