Malacostraca is an exploration of the fragility of the human mind, the male ego, and of difficulties in communication. It will be a horrifically scary film full of universally relatable feelings and fears. It will have a tone of trapped dread and nature-based horror; think ‘Possession’ meets ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock.’
