The Whistler – USA, 2018

‘Rise and be baptized’

The Whistler is a 2018 American short horror film written and directed by Jennifer Nicole Stang. It stars Karis Cameron and Baya Ipatowicz.

“Inspired by the story of ‘The Pied Piper of Hamelin’ by Robert Browning, The Whistler tells the story of Lindsey (Karis Cameron) who is forced to babysit her younger sister Becky (Baya Ipatowicz) one night. After falling asleep, Lindsey awakens to find her sister missing. Someone has taken Becky and may be after Lindsey as well…

Jennifer Nicole Stang said: “Our intention with The Whistler was to portray a classic horror story of a night of babysitting gone wrong with an original Pied Piper-like monster who has been stealing children since the founding colonies of America in the 1600s. It’s a suggestive piece that evokes questions about the time-old theme of purity and sin, a theme; that despite ideological changes, remains strong. I hope that viewers enjoy putting the pieces together and are surprised by a few jump scares as well.”

Currently playing the festival circuit, The Whistler can next be seen at the NYC Horror Film Festival on December 2, 2019.
