The name Jon Keeyes may not ring any immediate bells for you, but anytime I hear about a new project he’s involved in, I’m more than willing to pay attention cause the guys got serious skills.
He first came on the scene a few years back with the slasher flick with a twist, American Nightmare, and more recently got into the heads of a seriously twisted couple in the film Suburban Nightmare (no relation to one another other than the similar titles). Now he’s on to bigger and better things, and he’s bringing genre legend Udo Kier with him.
Kier will star alongside Dominique Swain in Keeyes’ next film, Fall Down Dead, playing a serial killer named The Picasso Killer, who uses his victims as a canvas for his sick and twisted artwork. Swain will play one of seven strangers who are being hunted by the killer during a citywide blackout, trapped in a confining building as he searches for his masterpiece. “This movie has everything I love about horror movies,” Keeyes said in a press release. “Quirky characters with great conflict, an original twist on the killer, very gruesome kills and the foundations for a lot of claustrophobic suspense. With ninety percent of the movie taking place during a citywide blackout, it will be fun to manipulate and play with both suspense and scares in limited lighting conditions.”
Production on Fall Down Dead will start up in August in North Carolina. Look for more on the proceedings very soon!
