THE COLUMNIST, a Blackly Funny Horror Film, Premiering via Virtual Cinema, VOD & Digital on 5/7

In this darkly funny horror film, Femke Boot (Katja Herbers) is a columnist and writer suffering from endless abusive posts and death threats on social media. Femke is obsessed by these hate-filled messages and spends every moment checking her Twitter feed. This obsession consumes her life and her work suffers as she fails to write her columns and novel. One day, all her pent-up anger and frustration explode in a moment of shocking and unexpected violence.

This brutal and bloody act inspires Femke to write again. However, her writer's block returns and with it her addiction to social media. Secretly, Femke believes there is only one solution to her ever-growing frustration. She surrenders to her murderous rage and alternates the killing and maiming of her social media tormentors with writing her debut novel.

But how long can she continue this double life? Can she hide her nightly murders from her teenage daughter and her new boyfriend, horror writer Steven Dood? And is fighting hatred with hatred really the best solution?
