Parting from her successful sweet sixteen, Lory Marshall meets up with Olivia Hung to dish about the hottest happenings of her birthday party. As the two gossip in Lory’s room, Nancy Jansen, Lory’s ex-best friend, falls dead from her closet. Afraid of losing their popularity, Lory and Olivia begin to retell their nights to straighten out their alibis. But in doing so, the two girls turn on each other as the truth about them both and Nancy is revealed.
Toronto-born filmmaker, Anna Shannon, moved out to the west coast of Canada to study Film Production at UBC. Primarily an editor, Anna took a step away from her comfort zone and stepped into the directing role to bring her story, Nancy’s Dead!, to life.
She is consistently inspired by the horror and dark-comedy genre, and pulls heavily from highly stylized filmmakers such as Guillermo Del Toro, David Lynch, and Yorgos Lanthimos. She hopes to create more works that push her boundaries as a filmmaker and person in the future.
