Here at Dread Central we recognize that indie filmmakers are the lifeblood of the horror genre, and as a result we try to cover as much of them and their projects as possible. Back in 2009 director Jeremy Kasten came to us to let us know about his latest project, The Dead Ones. Now it’s time to spread the word.
Sarah Harper, Brandon Wilson, Katie Foster, Torey Garza, Clare Kramer, and Muse Watson star in the film directed by Kasten from a script by Zach Chassler.
“Filmmaking is tough, dirty, hard, and mean–as well as other words that sound like they were ripped from the covers of 1960s pulp novels,” writes Kasten. “It is also, in its purest form, a thrill. Because you risk everything doing something you love. And in entertaining people you hope, in some way, to change the world.”
“Although an intensely personal, totally independent film, this is still a tense and terrifying horror movie,” Kasten remarks about The Dead Ones. “It is a high school ghost story. It also happens to be about something that I believe is important to discuss–more so now than ever. It is about bullying, school shootings, and repercussions. My crew and I made the movie on a micro-budget. In fact, in order to make the movie we wanted to make, we went over budget and shot a bunch of sequences on green screen. That kind of post production requires money, favors, and time for those favors to come through.”
Kasten continues, “When The Dead Ones hits film festivals later this year, we’ll need followers. Lots of them. It’s really that simple. And so, from one film fanatic to another, I ask: Please be a follower of this movie.”
