Writer-director Andrew Robertson’s feature narrative debut is “The Mansion,” a post-apocalyptic thriller in the same vein as “The Road.” Zombies or no zombies, fans of “The Walking Dead” (and we all know that there are a lot of us) will eat this up. The film’s first screening at the 7 Stages Theatre on Friday, March 22nd at 9:30 PM has had more tickets released after a quick sell-out and a second screening at the Plaza Theatre on Sunday, March 24th at 2:15 PM has been added to accommodate all the buzz.
While a rash of dystopian films and television shows has popped up lately, “The Mansion” definitely looks to have its finger on the pulse of the movement. It’s a win-win– getting to support local cinema and getting to enjoy a stylish, well-crafted thriller at the same time. Gleb Osatinski’s short film “The House at the Edge of the Galaxy” will play before “The Mansion” at both screenings.
