388 Arletta Avenue : ) plays with the notion that if you could scratch to beneath the surface of what most supposedly ordinary people present to the world, and even to themselves, you would find very interesting and possibly very dark things,” says Cole of the film. “If exploited, some of those things could even result in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, as it does for our lead character.”
