Tim Vandenberg’s ‘Agatha’ is a Well-Crafted Short Deserving of a Feature

The 1800’s, orphans, raw meat for dinner and a creepy woman in the attic. A recipe for something strange and unusual. Tim Vandenberg’s AGATHA recently debuted to L.A.’s Screamfest and it has not disappointed.

Garnering much buzz in the horror community, Vandenberg wants to use the short as a pitch to get funds to make a full-length feature film. Shorts have become a proving ground for many up and coming filmmakers. Tim and his team have knocked it out of the park. If you would like to help with their journey to get the film made there is still time to donate to the Kickstarter campaign.

The orphan train comes daily, spilling hundreds of children onto the streets of Pennsylvania in the late 1800’s. Desperate and alone, the penniless 7 year old Sophie, entrusts an older woman who hires her to bring food each night to someone living in her attic. There is just one rule: Do not pass the serving table….EVER. As time passes, the child’s curiosity grows bold; drawing her closer to discovering the truth behind the prisoner.
