It was a dark, snowy night in the Catskill Mountains, and she shouldn’t have been sledding near the road. At least that’s what Kurt tells himself after accidentally running over his 14-year-old neighbor, Echo. In a panic, he decides he has no choice but to dispose of her body. While police insist the teen is a runaway, Echo’s ghost torments her killer with bloody hallucinations and a healthy dose of teenage attitude. Unbeknownst to Kurt, Echo’s mother, Ivy, is a medium who reads tarot and might even (for the right price) contact dead relatives for grieving customers. Equipped with a mother’s intuition and insight from beyond the veil, Ivy inches closer to unearthing her neighbor’s terrible secret. Written, directed, acted, shot, scored, edited, and produced by a family of three—mother, father, and teen daughter—this paranormal gem is a genuine family affair. THE DEEPER YOU DIG is true micro-budget horror, taking what would be a simple ghost story and flipping it on its head with sheer creative ingenuity, resulting in an eerie, yet touching, tale of guilt, grief, and familial bonds stronger than death. — D.O.
