Post Thumb:


Who better to lead a veteran cast that includes The Highlander, 30 Days of Night hero Eben Oleson and a Canadian scream queen than John Carl Buechler, the man who helmed Friday the 13th Part 7: The New Blood, Troll and Cellar Dweller?

The director and special effects wizard returns to the captain’s chair after a five-year hiatus from directing to oversee the upcoming Dark Star Hollow, a film about a man who makes a deal with the devil to save the life of his wife.

While best known for directing part 7 in the Friday the 13th series, Buechler’s special make-up effects and other works are well known in films like Nightmare on Elm Street 4, Halloween 4 and Trancers. He is also working on a remake of his classic film, Troll, from 1986.

The cast of Dark Star Hollow includes many familiar faces, forgotten favorites and new blood:

  • Josh Hartnett plays Dan Reece, a burned out Chicago cop on vacation with his fiancé Amy, and her friends.
  • Firecracker and stuntwoman, kickboxer Lauren Mary Kim is the mischievous yet vulnerable Ashley Henderson. This little hottie is a fresh new face who packs some serious punch with each kick.
  • Old favorite Geoffery Lewis has a spot as a drunken dam foreman in the opening sequence.
  • Steel-jawed actor James Russo plays the mysterious, heroic Captain John Barteaux; the owner and guide of the massive houseboat Sarah Rose.
  • The Lord Rayden of Mortal Kombat, Christopher Lambert plays David Sinclair, the main antagonist; a soul collector anxious to complete his quota of 666 souls and regain his lost wife Noreen.
  • The return of Non; Jack O’Halloran is onboard after a break from acting to portray Jim Ross, a seemingly kind marina owner.
  • Canadian Scream Queen beauty Chelan Simmons is Tracy Hall.
  • Dawn of the Dead (remake) favorite gun-toting mama trucker Jayne Eastwood is onboard as Bev Ross, a tough, shotgun-wielding Tennessee gal.
  • Jason Voorhees portrayer Kane Hodder appears in a cameo as Fisherman Jack. Kane and John Carl worked together on Friday the 13th Part 7, as well as the Hatchet series.
  • Karate Kid Bad Boy Mike Barnes (aka Sean Kanan) plays a kindly first mate onboard the Sarah Rose houseboat.
  • Canadian stud Kyle Schmid is the obnoxious Tyler, Ashley’s boyfriend. You just know he’s gonna bite it before it’s over.

    Look for more on this one soon.
