The cast for the upcoming horror film The Road Killer, a thriller about a town terrorized by a series of hit and runs, has expanded by one – Maria Olsen (Shelter, Die-ner (Get It?), Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) has signed on to play Lieutenant Meyers’ wife, Lilith.
Olsen (pictured right) was already involved in the project on the producing side prior to taking on the role of Lilith. Her co-stars include Jack Holtz (as Lt. Meyers), Paul Garrett, Gabriel Bellotti, Julie Ufema, and Jason Ufema. Jon Craig, who co-directs The Road Killer with screenwriter Chris Ryves and also appears in the film, previously said the following:
“We are huge fans of the horror genre and big fans of old school horror. We find that suspense, realistic acting, and shock are the important elements in horror movies; and a lot of newer horror movies and remakes of old horror films forget the most important and basic things. The horror genre has a long history of low budget projects being very successful. Some of my favorite old horror movies include Evil Dead, Death Race 2000, Dawn of the Dead, and Cannibal Holocaust… By producing “The Road Killer”, I hope to make a horror movie that’s very true to the genre’s roots and takes the genre to another level, rather than demote it as a gory music video.”
“Making this movie is probably the biggest challenge of my life, but I enjoy every moment of it and don’t regret a thing. Despite facing serious financial issues and legal risks, we are 100 percent devoted to making this film as good as we possibly can and are committed to finishing it… We hope that The Road Killer will inspire people to not be afraid to make the movies they want to make.”
Look for more soon!
