Sure, we’re all familiar with the guilty pleasure that was the television show “Scare Tactics,” hosted by Shannen Doherty/Stephen Baldwin/Tracy Morgan. Thankfully a new film is on the way that has absolutely nothing to do with it! A beast of a completely different kind.
Pix/See Productions and Good Kids Productions have announced that Scare Tactics will begin pre-production soon with a 2013 release planned. The film was written and will be directed by Gregory Blair and star red hot actor Bill Oberst, Jr., with Mikhail Blokh, Cindy Merrill, Lise Hart, Ronny Coleman and Dawna Lee Heising. One of the key set locations is the cabin in woods from Friday the 13th: Part 4.
Horror writer and filmmaker Grafton Torn awakens from a coma to find himself with a bum leg and a large section of his memory missing. His best friend, Deter, came to Grafton’s house in response to a strange phone call to find the front door open and Grafton lying at the bottom of the stairs.
To aide in the doctor’s orders of rest and relaxation, Deter offers Grafton his remote lakeside cabin. There, with the help of a hypnotherapist and medication, Grafton tries to piece together the missing memories. But nightmares haunt him…nightmares that blend possible memories with characters from his own horror films…nightmares that happen while he’s awake!
As the nightmares worsen, Grafton must try to sort out what’s real and what isn’t. Did he try to kill himself? Did he kill his wife? Is she back from the grave for revenge? He was sure he had control of his life, his imagination, his role in the horrors he created. But as scripts write themselves, hatchets disappear and people end up dead, Grafton begins to wonder who’s really in control.
Scrambling for answers, Grafton must face his own creations including a hooded figure, a possessed doll, and zombie before Scare Tactics rushes to its shocking conclusion and Grafton realizes the line between reality and madness is as thin as a sheet of blank paper.
