The Muck

Director: Tony Wash

Tony Wash's short film "The Muck" is an attempt to recreate the 80s creature flick feel. Influenced by recent "homage" period movies like "House of the Devil" and "The Sleeper", "The Muck" brings a lot of pride to the Scotchworthy team. Filled with stunning photography by Robert Patrick Stern, spot-on period detail from Production Designer Sarah Sharp, a spine-chilling soundtrack by DC McAuliffe, and the gory stomach-churning effects Scotchworthy's FX Supervisor Jason Kain has become synonymous with, "The Muck" is sure to make you think twice about taking a bath ever again!
