Canadian writer and director Derek Franson marks his feature length debut with the very intriguing indie horror movie "Comforting Skin"

Comforting Skin is a supernatural thriller that follows Koffie, a lonely young woman’s who's desperate need for emotional and sexual companionship draws her into a surreal and ultimately destructive relationship with a shifting and whispering tattoo she has willed to life on her skin...You can read the full synopsis HERE.

The film stars Victoria Bidewell in her first starring role, along with Tygh Runyan, Jane Sowerby and Phil Granger. Victoria not only performed the lead part of Koffie, but voiced the tattoo character as well. Derek, myself and Andrew Webster produced the film. Our cinematography was handled by Adam Sliwinski, who did an amazing job for us, as did our editor Lenka Svab and Production Designer Elena Dubova. The film`s haunting music was composed and conducted by Alain Mayrand, who despite our miniscule budget was able to assemble an impressive group of orchestral musicians to record the score.
