Filmmaker Jack Dignan expressed his excitement, stating, “This is a terrifying, mind-bending found footage horror flick that'll scare you, move you and give you an experience you truly cannot prepare yourself for." He added, "There's no better home for it than with Welcome Villain Films."


"Puzzle Box" stars Kaitlyn Boye as Kait, Laneikka Denne as Olivia, with notable supporting performances from Cassandre Girard, Janelle McMenamin, Matias Klaver, and Hazel Pompeani. Shot on location in Sydney and Canberra, Australia, the film promises to deliver a haunting and unforgettable cinematic experience.


Welcome Villain Films' Head of Development, Luke LaBeau, expressed enthusiasm for the project, remarking, "What Jack and Morgan were able to pull off here is nothing short of remarkable," adding that the film offers a unique blend of thought-provoking narrative and spine-chilling horror.


With a summer release on the horizon, "PUZZLE BOX" is poised to captivate audiences worldwide. Stay tuned for more updates as Welcome Villain Films continues to redefine the horror genre with its daring acquisitions and innovative storytelling.
