Directed by Gabriel Bienczycki and Richard Karpala, and written by Karpala, the Fantastic Fest supernatural chiller Falling Stars unfolds in a world where witches are real and swoop down from the sky to snatch up and feed upon their human prey. On the night the so-called harvesting season begins, three brothers persuade a friend to drive them out to the desert to dig up the witch he claimed he killed and buried a year earlier. But the price they pay for their curiosity proves to be costly. Falling Stars screens at 4:45 p.m. Sept. 22 and 11:15 a.m. Sept. 26 at the Alamo South Lamar during Fantastic Fest. Gabriel Bienczycki and Richard Karpala make their directorial debut with Falling Stars.
