About Linda LeThorn

Linda LeThorn is an eccentric woman who inherits a strange package from her deceased, Aunt Lucinda.  She takes particular interest in a glass music box, which begins to play by itself, ultimately possessing her. After a disgusting series of events, Linda’s possessed state tells her to start a society for women who take interest in picking each other’s skin. A dysfunctional love triangle begins between Linda, the music box, and a woman from the society named Geraldine, who takes a somewhat obsessive liking to Linda. After Linda receives a disturbing phone call which brings her to her breaking point, the women decide to throw away all of Aunt Lucinda’s items.  The hope for their relationship that Geraldine receives after the items are thrown away diminishes when Linda reveals a secret she has been hiding.

We started shooting this project in November of 2011 and plan to complete the film in May 2012.  It was truly an adventure filming this project and many elements of the story grew organically. 

What We Need Money For

We are currently in post-production of the film and plan to finish in May 2012.  We currently need money for a good sound mix, color correction, a few HDCams for festivals, DVD screeners for submissions, money for submission fees, travel expenses, and promotional items (lobby cards for the film).   We are independent filmmakers who greatly appreciate ANY kind of donation that supports our work!

Trailer & Other Media

Here is the trailer for Linda LeThorn & the Musicbox:

Meg has worked with the same crew and some of the same cast members in her other film as well.  Terry Kendall & Orange Green features Tim Cox, Brit Charde Sellers, and Kimberly David, who will all three be returning to perform in Linda LeThorn & the Musicbox.  Terry Kendall & Orange Green has been written about in several articles and obtained distribution though the IPad App, Play Festival Films.  

Articles written about Meg's last film:

“…As I watched the film, I couldn’t help but think of the films of Terry Zwigoff, whose own films take a darkly humorous look at the world…” 

Peter Sanderson of Cinemaroll

“Definitely not predictable or manipulative, Terry Kendall and Orange Green is a truly original, imaginative film, crafted wonderfully across the board by smart young writer / director Meg Skaff.”

-Kent Stockton of Movie Vine.

 “…writer/director/D.P. Meg Skaff has managed to craft a darkly humorous film that defies genre and expectations with both horrifying and uncomfortably humorous results.”

- Richard Propes of The Independent Critic

“Here is a film that combines elements of drama, black comedy (no pun intended) and serial killer thrillers and does so with a gusto that should put a smile on any lover of indie horror cinema.”

-Matthew Saliba of Rogue Cinema
