ABOUT THE SHOW
This is a web series about two horror fans leaping into directing their first creature feature with their fame-hungry roommate... And then it's all downhill from there...
The show was created, written, (mostly) directed, and produced by Alicia Faucher and Larissa Thomas - who lost their film-ginity together. It was beautiful and filled with suffering, crying, and lots of wine. To read more about how Allie & Lara came to be, check out our Media section.
