Here at Dread Central we love us some indie features. Mainly because things made off of Hollywood’s grid have a tendency to exhibit a bit more balls than your standard fare. Especially when said feature is rockin’ some horror star power!
According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog, “True Blood” co-star Mehcad Brooks (aka “Eggs”), Serinda Swan (TRON Legacy), Sid Haig (The Devil’s Rejects), and Daniel Bernhardt (The Matrix Reloaded) are starring in an indie horror movie from Bubble Factory with the working title of Lockjaw.
The flick revolves around a group of family and friends who, while en route to New Orleans, are sidetracked in the Louisiana bayou and encounter a monster named Lockjaw who is revered by the locals as a god. When will people ever learn to just stick to the damned road? Natural selection I guess!
In the movie Brooks will play a Navy Seal back from the Middle East; Swan will play his fiancee, who is abducted to be the creature’s bride; the Captain himself, Haig, will play a man named Chopper (who, knowing Sid, is likely ready to take a bite out of someone’s ass himself); and Bernhardt will assume the role of the creature.
Fred M. Andrews wrote the script and will be directing the project. Amanda Fuller, Dillon Casey, and Lauren Schneider also star. Production begins Saturday in Baton Rouge, LA. Look for more soon!
