Indie Horror Month: Dave Reda Readying 'Love Potion #8' Short and 'Shadow' Feature Films
One of the most promising indie filmmakers we've come across here at Dread Central is Dave Reda, and he just dropped us a line with an update on two new projects he has in the works at Elftwin Films: a short film entitled Love Potion #8 and his second feature, Shadow.
Regarding Love Potion #8, Reda tells us, "[It's] the story of a guy who is of course a total flop with chicks so he goes to see a gypsy who tires to give him love potion #9, but it's a bit too expensive for him. So while she is in the back looking for something cheaper, he decides to steal love potion #8. Horrible things ensue..."
Dave continues, "It's very much my style - horror, comedy, romance - all mixed into one. I really feel it could be my best work to date! With the help of writer Jon Rosenberg, who helped me really flesh it out, it's going to rock!! We're in talks with Kelli Maroney (Night of the Comet, Chopping Mall) for the gypsy and Dian Bachar (BASEketballs, Orgazmo) for our leading man. This one should be hitting the fest circuit soon."
Reda is also writing a new feature film entitled Shadow with his writer friend Craig McGee, which he describes as "very much that iconic horror film that horror fans have been missing... I have done my homework with the fans and am ready to blow it out with this film. The script should be done very shortly here, and it's really coming out to be something special."
The lovely Jessica Cameron (left; Cut, Hell-O-Ween) plays the lead title character of Shadow, and additional casting news is forthcoming.
Look for more on both of these projects soon! In the meantime befriend Dave Reda on Facebook, "like" Elftwin Films on Facebook, stop by the official Elftwin Films website, and follow Elftwin Films on Twitter.
