DefTone Pictures Studios has a lot of irons in the fire already, but they’ve announced yet another project, a new slasher film entitled Holland Road, which DefTone is joining independent film company Paperghost Productions to release. Check out a few stills and more details.
From the Press Release:
Holland Road stars newcomer Samantha Hoy (Ombis, Model Hunger, and Return to the Class of Nuke ‘Em High) as Michelle and Jason John Beebe (Ombis, Snow Shark: Ancient Snow Beat) as John. Holland Road is a feature length film based on the Western New York legend of “The Pigman” (played by Michael Balch). The Pigman legend involves a serial killer who dresses up wearing a pig mask seeking blood and stalking his victims. Holland Road is written and directed by Aaron Bush and Wally Roberts. Additional cast members include Elizabeth Houlihan (Sarah), John Lehmann (Dwayne), Michael Sarcinelli (Arson), Brandon Devine (Brent), Eric Howell (Jeremy), Mike Sciabarrasi (Officer Maretti) and Mark Mendola (Officer Burke).
“Holland Road, located off NY Route 5 in between the town of Angola and Evangola State Park, is more frequently known as “Pigman Road” and it has been at the forefront of Western New York folklore for decades. Scores of high school students, ghost hunters, and area residents all have their own tales of headless spirits, photographic and audiotape abnormalities, and unusual activity emanating from this mile-long street. With an alluring mix of historical background regarding a train accident and urban legends about a pork-crazed serial killer, Pigman Road has become a rite of passage for anyone in the region wishing to access the world of the unknown.” says Joran Zyglis and Jill Gregorie in their article “The Mystery of Pigman Road”.
Holland Road has an anticipated release date of June 22, 2013. For more info on it and DefTone’s other projects such as To Release a Soul and Ombis, keep your eyes on the official DefTone Pictures Studios website.
