Award-winning filmmaker Tom Botchii released exclusive images from his horror-thriller film, ARTIK, just weeks away from the World Premiere at  Popcorn Frights.

A comic book obsessed serial killer teaches his son how to get away with a series of brutal murders until the boy befriends a mysterious man who threatens to expose everything. 

“It sounds funny but making ARTIK, a film about a murderer, was actually, kind of healing. Truth is, the character himself is loosely based on my dad and the character of Holton was based around an ex-girlfriend,” says Botchii. “So from the moment that I started writing, it felt like the story was just pouring out of me and releasing a lot of pent up emotion. And that was the original goal, do something that gets this off my chest, but also works as a small, independent horror production. Then, small began to morph into real which then changed into holy crap – it’s happening! And now, it feels like it’s truly starting to take on a life of its own.”
