Exclusive: Producer Jude Walko Talks Donner Pass

Dread Central recently caught up with producer Jude S. Walko, who tipped us off to his upcoming horror feature Donner Pass, which is set to shoot in Los Angeles and its surrounding environs next month.

Directed by Elise Robertson from a script by Scott Adams, Donner Pass is set to star John (the voice of the Crypt Keeper) Kassir as ‘Epstein’, Adelaide (Power Rangers R.P.M.) Kane as ‘Nicole’, and Desiree Hall as ‘Kayley’, with the cast rounded out by up-and-comers Erik Stocklin and Colley Bailey and seasoned vets Thomas Kopache, Eric Pierpoint, Joel Stoffer, Russ Russo, and Kevin Kearns. Mouncey Ferguson III, who independently financed the film, serves as executive producer with Walko on board in the capacity of producer.

The story? “Over a long weekend,” Walko informed us of the flick’s narrative, “a group of angst-ridden teens are invited up to their friend’s parents’ remote cabin in Donner Pass, where their stories of Donner’s past, sexual tension, and machismo flow as free as the alcohol. Treacherous roads, a missing persons report, and creepy urban legends add to the suspense as the snow barricades them in. One by one their true colors begin to show.

FX-man Ralis Kahn will be providing the gore (and Walko promises a lot of it) with production design shepherded by Alessandro Marvelli and cinematography by Bobby Scott.
