Who Killed Allison Parkes?
The glamorous new Club Entourage at 1600 Vine was the opening production party for the new Richard Gabai's film, Insight. Opening on Sept 2nd, in select theatres, the new suspense thriller was shot in the seedy Boyle Heights district of Los Angeles.
InSight follows Kaitlyn (Natalie Zea), an ER nurse who, while tending to the young stabbing victim, Allison, is accidentally electrocuted by the defibrillator that was being used to save the woman's life. Almost immediately, Kaitlyn starts experiencing the victim's memories. Kaitlyn turns to family, friends, and the police, but no one takes her seriously, so she takes it upon herself to solve the crime - as the terrifying visions threaten her sanity. Ultimately, Kaitlyn teams up with detective Peter Rafferty (Sean Patrick Flanery) and weaves her way through the victim's past in an attempt to discover the brutal truth about the murder and herself.
Richard Gabai says that from the moment he opened the script, "I was mezmerized. I couldn't put it down." Even the young star, Angeline Rose says that "I was on the edge the whole movie." Richard received the script through his DP, Scott Peck, and so it is possible for independent screenwriters to get their material read even without going through the channels.
Sponsors for the evening also included Inktip, Quest Pictures, and the Fete Group
