CRABCAKE: Annapolis Film Festival | Butterfly Kisses | Erik Kristopher Myers (March 2018)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20.  In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!


Found footage and urban legend come together in chilling fashion to spin this unsettling tale shot on location in Ellicott City, Maryland. When film students decide to capture the “Peeping Tom” ghost on camera, it creates devastating consequences in their lives as they try to prove the ghost is real and not just a special effect they made up. Blurring the line of reality and fiction, this supernatural thriller includes cameos by Eduardo Sánchez, director of The Blair Witch Project, and Matt Lake, author of Weird Maryland: Guide to Maryland’s Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets.

In this Crabcake, we speak with writer, director, and producer Erik Kristopher Myers about his second feature film, Butterfly Kisses. Erik is local to Maryland the setting is right here in Ellicott City as he tackles an urban legend from a different angle. We talk about his interest in filmmaking, his preference in spices for crabs, and why we never got a chance to see this film last year!

This is an intriguing movie for me and I have checked it off on my list of must see movies.
