Restoration –  The ghost of 10-year-old Yvonne LeMay has been tethered to the trunk of a 1950 Fleetline Deluxe for over half a century.

Ultimately frustrated with her new digs, she throws a temper tantrum that proves deadly for the resident gearheads. Winner of Best Director, Best Screenwriter and Best Mid-Length Feature at Housecore Horror Film Festival. Written and Directed by Ryan Oliver (Q&A to follow). Trailer
