Part Frankenstein, part Twin Peaks has been the description from the festival hit from Kyle Broom TABLOID VIVANT.

TABLOID VIVANT tore through festivals and will be released later this year. Check out the stills and trailer for this flick and look for a review right here on HMU soon!
Frankenstein meets Twin Peaks in in writer-director Kyle Broom’s “jarring, unpredictable, immensely fun”* horror-thriller Tabloid Vivant.
Jesse Woodrow (TV’s Charmed) and Tamzin Brown (The Adderall Diaries) are spellbinding in the award-winning** festival fave that’s due for release later this year.
Max is an artist seduced by the allure of fame. Sara is an art critic whose obsessions exceed even his. When she lands a writing gig at a major art magazine, the pair retreats to a cabin in the woods, where Max reveals his strange new painting method. Convinced of its potential, she agrees to collaborate on a piece sure to revolutionize the art world. While both original and mesmerizing, the project reveals something dark and disturbing about their relationship. Like two digital-age Frankensteins, they manage to make a painting come alive – though the unsettling consequences of their success may be more fit for the pages of a blood-soaked tabloid than the chronicles of art history.
The first trailer, stills and poster for the film have been released for the film ahead of a wide release later this year.
