Starring Aaron Sauter, Amandine Thomas and Alicia Goranson, The Wood House is a short film following a desperate teen who will do anything to escape his small-town life and abusive father. 

“I have to say that I love everything about The Wood House, from its moody-innocence, to the film’s beautiful screenplay, seamless direction, outstanding acting of all concerned, and fluid camera moves. Notwithstanding the fact that The Wood House‘s fifteen-minute duration moves in a flash and leaves me yearning for more—always a huge plus in any story. Most of all, I love the film’s shocking ending which is a bit ambiguous and open ended, raising questions about the characters, and ourselves, should we find ourselves in similar circumstances. I strongly suggest viewing Joseph Marconi’s very strong and compelling The Wood House.”

Amy Handler, Film Threat 


“Featuring some passionate performances and an engaging ‘stripped down’ soundtrack, The Wood House is a decent display of a simple premise presented solidly in filmic format.” 

James Cherry, The London Film Review
