Indie director Kevin MacDonald (Beg, The Witching Hour) has joined the Alexius Omnimedia/Penobscot Films production of scribe Brian Pickard’s horror comedy Slayers! Melinda Chilton is attached to star in the film.
Billed as “The Undead vs. The Brain Dead,” Slayers! is
prepping for a late summer start in Maine. The film’s synopsis follows:
Four friends battle the forces of evil night after night from the comfort of their living room. Instead of being rugged warriors of the night, they are dice-tossing legends in their own mind. But when their small town is threatened by a very real vampire, the friends band together to save one of their own. They charge into the night to take the evil head on … badly.
It’s a fight to the death between good and evil.
Along with Chilton (pictured, who is also attached to the recently announced Watch Island, penned by Pickard), the cast includes Brandon Stumpf (Beg, interview here), Sarah Nicklin (Beg, The Witching Hour), and Michael Reed (Nun of That, Beyond the Dunwich Horror). In addition, screenwriter Pickard will be making his acting debut in the film.
