As Indie Horror Month comes to a close, we’re squeezing in one more story to tell you about The Merchant, a new independent film that recently wrapped primary photography in Texas. A tale of horror set in the Old West, the film was directed by Justin Mosley and written/produced by Allen Reed.
Hell has come to the town of Burning Bush. The year is 1895, and the town has fallen into gambling, prostitution, and loan-sharking; but when the town’s benefactor, William “Big Bill” Micallef, must make good on a deal made with the demon Belial, it’s the innocents of Burning Bush who must pay with blood. Now a pair of young ranch hands, a pregnant widow, a can-can dancer, a Haitian bartender, and a booze-swilling gunslinger must fight for their lives as Belial aims to destroy everything and everyone in town and reap the souls promised him.
Look for Reed as a future Texas Frightmaker, and for now check out the synopsis, some still photos, and a teaser trailer! You can also visit the official The Merchant website and “like” The Merchant on Facebook.
