Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Francis Ford Coppola's gothic horror film Twixt stars Val Kilmer as Hall Baltimore, a semi-successful, alcoholic horror novelist who has been reduced to performing a book signing in the small town of Swan Valley. The local sheriff (Bruce Dern) tells him about a mysterious massacre in the town's history, and suggest that the two of them write a book about it. While at first Hall blows off the suggestion, he has a series of disturbing dreams -- often involving Edgar Allan Poe (Ben Chaplin) -- about the town and its history that prompt him to dig further into the truth. Co-starring Elle Fanning, Twixt screened at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
