Vimeo debuts Brian Petsos’ short on Monday.
Oscar Isaac is having quite the meltdown in The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive clip of Lightningface.
The 20-minute short film stars the actor as Basil, a man who gets struck by lightning and wakes to find his face scarred. He quickly spirals out of control, sequestering himself in his apartment, calling out of work and cutting ties with his loved ones as he begins to believe that he’s part of an otherworldly transformation.
In the clip of the short, Basil has resorted to covering his damaged face with a paper bag whenever answering the door. He’s greeted by an odd stuffed animal that takes things to another level, to say the least.
Lightningface is Isaac’s second collaboration with director Brian Petsos, as the two previously worked together on the short film Ticky Tacky.
Vimeo debuts the short on Monday.
