Filmmakers in attendance for Q&A!
“Pitched somewhere between Peeping Tom (1960) and Misery (1990), ‘True Fiction’ is a tense and twisty near two-hander that carefully negotiates the convoluted connections between authorship and imposture in any work of make-believe.” (SciFiNow)
“It’s a refreshingly complex and ambitious, sometimes genuinely unnerving power game.” (Rue Morgue Magazine)
“With echoes of ‘The Shining’ and ‘Misery’, Braden Croft has created an intriguing plot and atmospheric tale that Stephen King himself would be proud of.” (THN)
