Horror Hangout Bonus Episode : Interview with Pensive Director Jonas Trukanas (FrightFest Glasgow)

Andy Conduit-Turner is joined by Jonas Trukanas, the director of Pensive, which had its UK premiere at FrightFest Glasgow on Friday the 10th March.


Get ready for the very first Lithuanian slasher. Wooden sculptures of the Pensive Christ can be found in weirdest spots all through the Baltic States. They combine folk art and Christian traditions into a singular entity concerning the fear of being judged. And that’s what is about to happen to the usually risk-averse Marius as he organises the venue for his wild high school graduation party at a remote cottage.


For his drunken and drugged classmates destroy some life-size wooden statues and almost immediately a scarred, masked and mysterious killer starts picking them off one by mutilated one.
