‘Death is just a matter of perception’

Sunset on the River Styx is a 2020 American horror feature film about a disenchanted bus driver who is drawn into a death cult by a strange woman.

Written and directed by Aaron Pagniano (short: We Got a Monkey’s Paw) and produced by Travis Campbell, Joseph Papa and Jesse Zhu, the Formidable Films production stars Phillip Andre Botello, Jacqueline Jandrell, Cory Vaughn and Avery Pohl.


In a swampy Florida city, a metro bus driver named Will lives a repetitive and purposeless life. His routines are interrupted by Ashe, whose bleak existential rhetoric engages him and introduces him to a strange world of the undead.

Will follows Ashe into a death cult, led by a charismatic vampire. However, he panics, disrupting a ritual before the transformation is completed, so Will and Ashe find themselves trapped in the no-man’s-land between life and death, detached from conventional time and space. The pair must escape this fragmented landscape of past and present demons before it’s too late…


Sunset on the River Styx will premiere at the Cinequest Film & Creativity Festival in Redwood City, California, on March 7, 2020.
