Filmmaker’s statement

Bonding imagines a newlywed’s idea of a haunted house, where the typical supernatural terror is replaced with the tormenting presence of regret, resentment, and memories of a brighter past.

At its core, the film is a love story dressed as a horror, which allowed us to have fun playing with composition, pacing and music to reference some of the genre’s familiar signatures.

I was lucky to work with some old and new friends on this project and I’m forever grateful to the cast and crew for being incredible collaborators and rising to the occasion against a tight timeline and limited resources.
