‘The Witch in the Window’ is Another Great 2018 Horror Movie About the Terrors of Parenting [Fantasia Film Festival]
Andy Mitton might be without frequent behind-the-scenes partner Jesse Holland (YellowBrickRoad/We Go On) for The Witch In The Window, but separation anxiety is handily staved. As sole writer and director, Mitton embraces parenthood paranoias of this very instant by furthering his obsession with heavyweight thematic manipulations in genre fare. His ghost story chases compassion, unnerves […]

Stricken by a paralysing fear of death and uncertainty about what lies beyond, sad-sack Miles (Clark Freeman) places an advert in the newspaper offering a $30,000 reward for anyone who can conclusively prove to him that there’s an afterlife. After receiving and dismissing hundreds of responses, Miles chooses three to follow up on. With his firebrand mother Charlotte (Annette O’Toole) as his sidekick, the duo set off to try and answer the big question once and for all.

Given the basic classified ad set-up, the mumblecore approach, vague ruminations on the meaning of it all and a central conflict between believers and sceptics, I was reminded strongly of Safety Not Guaranteed, though We Go On adds

Q&A: Filmmakers Jesse Holland & Andy Mitton on Exploring the Afterlife in We Go On

Seeking proof of life after death, a man puts out a newspaper ad with a $30,000 reward for anyone who can show him that the afterlife truly exists in We Go On. A horror film with a lot on its mind, We Go On is now available to watch on the streaming service Shudder, and we recently caught up with the film's directors, Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton, for our latest Q&A feature.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us. What inspired you to create We Go On?

Jesse Holland: What inspired us was the universality of the question, what happens after you die? It’s a question everyone asks. We wanted to have a protagonist that anyone could identify with and he’s asking a universal question.

Andy Mitton: The premise of putting an ad out to see if anyone can prove the afterlife was hooky and straightforward,

Interview: Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton Talk We Go On, Now On Shudder

In their chilling sophmore feature, We Go On, filmmakers Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton explore life's biggest question through the eyes of a supernatural thriller. In the film, a young man in the throws of an existential crisis publishes an ad promising thousands of dollars to anyone who can confim life after death. What follows is a compelling journey into death and redemption. The film was a hit on the festival circuit, resulting in a plum deal from AMC's horror streaming service Shudder, which released the film exclusively this week.    We caught up with the filmmakers to talk festivals, how they landed the deal and whether they're skeptics or believers.  ScreenAnarchy: I want to ask about your 2016 festival run.

‘We Go On’ Review (Shudder Exclusive)

  • Nerdly
Stars: Clark Freeman, Annette O’ Toole, John Glover, David Bickford, Justin Carpenter, Jay Dunn, Edwin Garcia II, Laura Heisler, Terry Kaye, Logan Kishi, Peter Lucas | Written and Directed by Jesse Holland, Andy Mitton

Phobia-ridden and driven by a sense of existential dread (and also, literally, his mother, in her car) a man places an ad in the newspaper: prove the existence of life after death, win thirty thousand dollars. Of the many replies he receives (including, apparently, many masturbators), Miles narrows the applicants down to just three – a scientist, a medium and an entrepreneur.

First and foremost, We Go On is a road movie; a mother and her son, seeking answers. Like a downbeat Mulder and Scully, the sceptic (or flat-out unbeliever) and the agnostic, scrabbling for hope in a world which often terrifies the latter. Such a concept would be nothing without a strong pair of leads, and this

Fantasia 2016: ‘We Go On’ Review

Jo Satana is finalizing his reviews from films exhibiting at the 2016 Fantasia International Film Festival!

We Go On is a tense supernatural thriller that brought the chills during a particularly hot and muggy week of Fantasia 2016. What stuck with me as well, aside from my wet skin flaps, was how much the title mirrored the mind state I was in at the time: late with reviews, missing essential screenings, losing track of priorities and having to push back the festival marketing machine. All you can do really is soak it in, take it out on your family, and simply « go on »….

Directed by Andy Mitton and Jesse Holland, We Go On is an intimate study on the resolve it takes to let go and move forward. We all carry ghosts of the past with us, some of you even have them tattooed on your body, but how many of us
