ABOUT THE FILM
He Never Left is the second feature-film produced by Witching Season Films. In October of 2020, Director James Morris met actor Colin Cunningham at the Horrorfest Film Festival, where the two hosted a panel alongside Ted Raimi. They remained in contact through the following months, and James pitched Colin the original screenplay for the film. The filmmakers ran a successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign where enthusiastic fans help raised part of the film’s budget. Production began on the film in October 2021 and wrapped in June of 2022. The film is currently navigating the film festival circuit with an anticipated release in 2024.
After hearing strange noises coming from an adjoining motel room, Gabriel, a federal fugitive wanted for murder, and his girlfriend Carly inadvertently become targets of the notorious Pale Face killer, whose legend has consumed and haunted the local community for decades.
