From the Mist (Preproduction)

The idea for the plague doctor short came to me from my fascination with baroque horror – in particular, Edgar Allen Poe’s Masque of the Red Death, and The Repairer of Reputations (a short story from a collection called The King in Yellow). The initial idea was for a mysterious, cloaked figure in a mask to hobble out of the mists, and visit pestilence and death upon a brothel. The reasons would be unexplained, and would begin and end in darkness.

The project evolved, and we took on a hero, someone to shine a light in the dark world:
The hero is everything the doctor is not
The project was to take place in a half-3D, half 2D nightmare world, twisted and warped by some unknown influence.

The project ended up as a half-3D, half-2D nightmare, twisted and warped by some unknown influences.
