Soft for Digging

Soft for Digging

Directed by JT Petty

An old man witnesses a young girl’s murder in the woods but when he calls the police they can’t seem to locate her body. Haunted by what he saw, Virgil persists in trying to figure out what really happened. Is he going senile? Receiving messages from the afterlife? Or something else? J.T. Petty’s (THE BURROWERS) shot-on-16mm NYU senior thesis project premiered at Sundance, where critics praised its unique dialogue-free take on supernatural horror. Petty’s debut also shares a sensibility with classics like VAMPYR, THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI and the films of Guy Maddin.

An old man witnesses a young girl’s murder in the woods but police can’t locate the body.

I think this was a interesting. Frightening Movie. Felt the loneliness of this sad old man. When his cat runs away. The cat brings him to this nightmare. One thing that I think is the child was a killer. The priest said the child killed a dog. I think the spirit of this evil child took over the old mans body. So at the end it was the spirit that killed the cat. The old man had no reason to kill his cat. It was the child ghost that took over the old man. Really interesting. Loved the black and white and silence.

It was the cat's fault he got mixed up in that whole sordid business.
