Synopsis: When the everyman MacBain (Greg Padgett) has an existential encounter with the diabolical Mephisto (Daniel Saunders), terrors, nightmares, and gleeful gore abound in this student short influenced by Goethe’s Faust, The Seventh Seal, David Lynch, and early Peter Jackson. This timeless tale of a man’s ensnarement by the Devil takes place in a surreal fantasy world of allegorical significance, embedded deep within the dark recesses of MacBain’s tortured soul. But in order to finally triumph over the Devil, MacBain must face this very darkness in himself and all its horrors–even death itself. When you look into the Devil’s face, what will you see?
