Emmet Austin's Biography

Short Title: "The Hemlock"
Directed by: Emmet Austin
Approx time: 10 minutes

"The Hemlock" was filmed entirely in the remote woods of the UP (Upper Peninsula) of Michigan, USA, and as it suggests, is based on a true story. There on a supposed vacation with my assistant Jenny C., we rented the small cabin. We found the stay uncomfortable and very eerie. We had brought along a camera to possibly shoot some wildlife in the area and "The Hemlock" just seemed to make itself. Given a campy 70's style treatment gave it a creepy edge I remember as a child watching earlier horror classics such as the original "Friday the 13th".
