Anyone who’s well acquainted with me knows that I have no love for possums so it is with great trepidation that I report on a film called Possum Walk. Still, I’ve suffered for my craft and for your enjoyment before so here goes.
For those uninitiated few who don’t already know, Possum Walk is “…a dark, dramatic film about small-town Southern living, which is controlled by fear, ignorance, and – perhaps worst of all – religion. A young virgin named ‘Faith Carpenter’ – played beautifully by newcomer Maggie Conwell – discovers she’s pregnant, and begins having terrible visions of demonic goings-on as a result. Her widower father, ‘Brother William Carpenter’ – played with gusto by indie genre fave Parrish Randall (VICIOUS, QUICK AND THE UNDEAD) – struggles with a few demons of his own. And, as things are boiling over between these two, a masked killer picks the sleepy little town to become the newest venue for his insanity – sexually abusing and killing the women of the town – but not necessarily in that order.”
According to writer/director Jeremy Sumrall, the flim is about about 98% complete. We have one or two dialogue scenes left to film, and then a couple of FX pickup shots. Little stuff we weren’t able to pull off quite the way we wanted, naturally.” Sumrall went on to say that “…the production has gone much smoother than I could have anticipated. I have an amazing cast and hard-working crew supporting me in this endeavor. I’m eternally grateful to each and every one of them for helping to bring my creation to life.”
Look for more on this one soon. In the interim, dig on the stills and the one-sheet below.
