Exclusive: Producer Kevin Tenney Talks Night of the Demons: After-Party
It may be Monday, but demons still want to party, and as producer Kevin Tenney told us this morning, they're preparing to do so in a splatter-filled sequel to the 2009 remake of his 1988 cult classic Night of the Demons. Read on for more!
"It’s been too long since something unspeakable has happened with a tube of lipstick," said Tenney (pictured), "and I think it’s time to change that with Night of the Demons: After-Party, which will be the funniest, bloodiest, nastiest Night of the Demons yet."
Joining producer Tenney for the sequel will be director Anthony Hickox (Waxwork, Hellraiser 3), who will direct from a script by Sean Tretta (Death of a Ghost Hunter, The Prometheus Project), and actress/horror veteran Tiffany Shepis, who will star. Gabe Bartalos (Leprechaun, Basket Case 2 & 3) will handle make-up and special effects, and Harry Manfredini (Friday the 13th, House), will score the film.
"We’re all horror fans ourselves, and we’re really excited about Sean’s script," offered Tenney. "Because of a previous commitment to direct another film, I couldn't be on set during the production of Adam Gierasch and Jace Anderson's Night of the Demons remake. But this time I will be the on-set producer, working closely with director Hickcox and the rest of our incredible team. I can't wait to get started."
Partially financed, Tenney said of Night of the Demons: After-Party, "We’d like horror fans to be involved with us from the start and want to deliver a film that they want to see, not what traditional financiers and distributors think that fans want. So, this morning at 8:00 A.M., we launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the rest of the money we need to make the film. Be a part of it. Together, we’ll make this the best Night of the Demons ever."

No word yet on plot details although we predict it has to do with some demons, a party, and a certain house in Louisiana. We'll be bringing you an interview with director Hickox shortly so stay tuned!
