The Scary of Sixty-First

Directed by Dasha Nekrasova

The feature film debut of actor and ‘Red Scare’ podcast host Dasha Nekrasova is a wild, wickedly witty and thoroughly creepy tale of haunting and possession set against the real-world backdrop of the crimes of Jeffrey Epstein. Two friends searching for an apartment on Manhattan’s Upper East Side come across what appears to be the perfect space, albeit one that’s suspiciously empty and affordable. When one of the young women finds herself taken over by a presence within the apartment, the other sets out to investigate further and uncovers a psycho-geographical web of secret histories and dark conspiracies.

While thoroughly contemporary in its concerns and tone of voice, the film is stylistically possessed by horror-film forms from different periods and sub-genres, creating unstable ground that keeps the viewer on edge, off-balance and always curious as to where the next step will lead. The same must surely apply to Nekrasova’s film career.
