The Journal Public Release

A lot has been happening behind the scenes at Surrealist Pictures, which is why things have been a bit quiet these last couple of months...but we've got exciting news!

We are proud to announce that our supernatural thriller The Journal is finally being released to the general public!

Written and directed by Brad Christensen and starring Keith Dennis Chandler, Gys De Villiers, Corey Reece, and Accalia Quintana, The Journal is the first short feature film from Surrealist Pictures.

The film was crowdfunded on Indiegogo and by private sources in early 2015 and filmed that summer. Editing and effects were completed in 2016, and the film was released soon after to backers and film festival organizers for their consideration.

Now, just in time for "All Hallows' Eve", the film is available to everyone...for free!

For your convenience, you can use the player above to watch the full movie.

Thank you to the entire cast and crew of The Journal for all their tireless efforts that brought the film into reality!

All of us at Surrealist Pictures hope you enjoy.

Happy Halloween!
