James Cullen Bressack has officially signed on to direct the psychological horror thriller SQUEAL: Blood Harvest, and the prolific young indie filmmaker promises to “push the envelope to a place it hasn’t been yet.”
Bressack is known for his work on such films as 13/13/13, Hate Crime, and Blood Lake. Bill Oberst, Jr. (Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies, Children of Sorrow), is set to play the lead role of Uncle Ollie.
The screenplay was written by Michael Hultquist (Arena, Victim) based on an original story concept created by Seth Metoyer (Cell Count, Deadly Punkettes, Ballerina Massacre) and story coordinator Shannon Hilson. The film is currently in pre-production and scheduled for a 2015 release through Oberst and Metoyer’s Dismal Productions in association with MOnsterworks66. Executive producer Steve Boyle recently joined the project, and additional casting is in progress.
SQUEAL: Blood Harvest follows the story of young Maggie Crane and her brother, Jake, as they attempt to unravel the mystery behind Jake’s recurrent nightmares of squealing pigs. After a move to their Uncle Ollie’s (Oberst) farm, Maggie and her camera further explore the dark and sinister foundation of her brother’s fears to the tune of chilling revelations.
