Demon Toast

Horror Comedy - 12 minutes

Directed and Edited by Scott Riehs

Rosie can't wait to celebrate her husband Ralph's retirement by going on a cruise.  But their vacation plans go awry when their brand new toaster becomes possessed by the devil...

Demon Toast was my first major collaboration with director Ben Leonberg, who was the Director of Photography on this film.  It was also one of the first collaborations of ours featuring extensive practical special effects.  Just remember: if you get a new toaster and you find it's acting strange, please.  Tell your loved ones and get out of the house as quick as you can...

Demon Toast premiered in New York City at the 2014 Big Apple Film Festival.  Below are a few clips from a talkback I did after our screening at Tribeca Cinema.
