‘Spawn’ fan film may make you forget that other Spawn movie
The bulk of the nearly eight-minute film was shot in a day and two nights in a supermarket after business hours, using a limited cast and crew (post-production took two years, with the visual effects rendered on a single computer).
“I think supermarkets are a kind of allegory for temptation, with all the ads, the colors, the sales events, encouraging consumption,” Paris said in a statement. “So I thought it would be interesting to mix an everyday life story in a supermarket, such as a mum and her kid shopping, with a dark and fantasy story. Besides I have always been a fan of Spawn, I followed it since the comics began. Both ideas then came together, so I decided to make a fan film!”
The result is a stylish, atmospheric and all-too-brief thriller with touches of fantasy and horror, and a Spawn that’s downright frightening.
