Digital Release: STUCCO

STUCCO is available to watch on

If you’re into strange genre films that keep you guessing and completely entranced, then STUCCO is the film for you. Excellently shot with a top notch sound design, this film immerses you into the world of a young woman living in fear of what could be on the other side of the hole in her wall. Using killer VFX and nightmarish imagery, STUCCO is wonderfully weird. — Jillian C (Programmer)


J is trying and failing to move forward as the scars of old relationships keep her trapped inside her new home. While hanging a piece of art, she knocks a hole in her wall that reveals what might be a hidden room. Her mind races to think what could be on the other side as she continues to unravel.
