Blue Finch Boards Global Sales on Sitges, Beyond Film ‘Last Straw’



Blue Finch Films has boarded worldwide sales on horror-thriller, “Last Straw,” set to have its world premiere at the Sitges Film Festival before making its way to Beyond Fest next month.

Written by Taylor Sardoni, “Last Straw” pays homage to the pressure cooker genre films of the past and aims to present a raw and unrelenting twist on the home-invasion thriller. The story revolves around a young waitress working the late shift alone at a rural roadside diner. Her life takes a terrifying turn when she becomes the target of a group of masked assailants. As the night unfolds she must muster all her strength to survive.

This film marks the directorial debut of Alan Scott Neal and the cast includes Jessica Belkin (“American Horror Story”), Jeremy Sisto (“Thirteen”) and Taylor Kowalski (“Snowfall”). The original score is composed by Alan Palomo of Neon Indian and the cinematography is by Andrey Nikolaev.

Daniel Brandt (“I Love My Dad”), Bad Grey’s Dane Eckerle (“I Love My Dad”) and Cole Eckerle (“Mother, May I?”) produce alongside Michael Giannone and Phil Keefe representing AC3 Media, Levon Panek, and Sam Slater of Burn Later Productions.

Blue Finch Films will be starting international sales on the film during the AFM 2023.

Eckerle said: “We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Blue Finch on ‘Last Straw.’ They’re a top tier sales partner in the independent genre space. We’ve long been fans of their work and we’re so excited to finally be able to collaborate with them in bringing this film to the masses. Sitges and Beyond Fest are also the perfect homes to premiere this this film and getting to share those two laurels with some of our favorite films of recent years is a dream.”

Blue Finch’s international slate includes SXSW narrative competition winner “Raging Grace,” SXSW-selected “Monolith” and Tribeca-selected Australian horror “You’ll Never Find Me.”
