Fans of religious horror, keep your eyes on Todd and Jason Freeman’s Wake Before I Die, a feature length film adapted from the novel My Soul to Take by their pastor father Dale Freeman. Check out the trailer and a new poster from artist Tom Hodge at The Dude Designs – and Fear Thy Neighbor!
Wake Before I Die was written and directed by The Brothers Freeman. It stars Robert McKeehen, Audrey Walker, Cheyenne Canfield, Elijah Nelson, Nouel Riel, Michael J. Prosser, Joshua St. James, Benedict Herrman, Victor Morris, Danny Bruno, Robert Blanche, Adrienne Vogel, Trish Egan, Betty Moyer, and Josiah Nelson. Robert Blanche produced.
“This was the first film that we shot in 2010,” says Todd on the film’s website. “Jason and I adapted the screenplay from our dad’s book My Soul to Take. Later that year we shot The Weather Outside, written and directed by Jason, and Cell Count, written and directed by myself. A lot of our inspiration for WBID was from Val Lewton as well as the films of Roman Polanski. After working with Tom Hodge on the Cell Count and The Weather Outside poster, we knew he was the man for the job. His style [and] knowledge of genre marketing throughout the ages are without question the best in the business.”
After moving his family to a small Northwest town, Pastor Dan Bennett begins to suspect that all might not be as idyllic as he first imagined. Strange spiritual obsessions begin to unearth age-old secrets, and personal threats await anyone who dares confront them. He realizes he must not only prepare his new congregation to face the assault but also fortify his own home as evil seeks to invade and shake it to its very foundation.
