1. Screening of “Henley”
The 10-minute short is directed by Craig Macneill and involves a young boy whose ambition of saving money leads him to somewhat innocently do, er, unusual~ things. It’s based on the chapter “The Henley Road Motel” from the acclaimed novel “Miss Corpus.” Check out a clip here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQh1VaV2ZgA
2. Clips from “The Boy”
Directed by Macneill, “The Boy” is the first film in an upcoming serial-killer trilogy and promises to be one one of the scariest movies you’ll ever see. The trilogy is aimed at tracking the childhood of a future serial killer, depicting the character at ages 9, 14 and 18 and ending with his transformation into a mass murderer.
3. Q&A with Craig Macneill, director of “Henley” and “The Boy”
Craig Macneill will be discussing “The Boy,” produced by Chiller Films and SpectreVision (Principles: Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah and Josh Waller) .

“Macneill's screenplay (co-written by Clay McLeod Chapman) subtly fleshes out the tattered details responsible for Ted's mania with grimly poetic understatement worthy of Cormac McCarthy. ”
