River is a psychological sci-fi thriller that follows River Allen (Mary Cameron Rogers, “Under The Silver Lake”), a 20-something woman who searches for her fragmented identity. After her mother’s death, River has spiraled emotionally out of control. When she disappears for over a week with no recollection of how she returned home, River loses all sense of self and purpose. Disturbing, nightmarish images haunt her mind. She believes that she has lost her grip on reality, which she believes is due to her grieving for her departed mother. But a darker, undiscovered secret taunts her. River’s best friend, Amanda Banks (Alexandra Rose), guides her on a self-discovery journey to find the truth. However, River soon discovers that Amanda conceals her own frightening secrets. Faced with her shattered psyche, River fights for her sanity that is tormented by nightmares that have originated from the surrounding forest. Will she uncover the disturbing truth that could save her, or will she slip deeper into insanity?

I had a fun chat with Courtney Gains to talk about River. He joked about his covid “look” favoring his character and how he also enjoys bringing in ideas making no exception in this film. I could not let the conversation end without talking a little bit about his music and his 1980s career.
