Anthony C. Ferrante’s sophomore directorial effort, “>Headless Horseman (review), is on DVD stands as you read this, so Ferrante and crew are making sure the horror community knows about it.
To that end they’ve posted an exclusive commentary track over on IFMagazine for your listening pleasure, and they’ve sent Dread Central an exclusive clip from the film as well as the official poster and DVD trailer; check ‘em out below.
What is Headless Horseman, you ponder, touching your chin thoughtfully? Seven college kids take a shortcut on their way to a party and unfortunately end up in Wormwood – a “lost” town in the middle of nowhere. They find something strange and sinister happening there – bones and weird decorations line Main Street. The cause: local Wormwood legend says on All Hallows Eve one hundred years ago, a crazed man tortured the youngsters in town and then cut off their heads. In retaliation, the townspeople killed him by cutting off his head. Seeking revenge every seven years, he returns and takes seven heads from children in the town. Now the seven visitors find themselves hunted one by one as the Headless Horseman claims his due. Each will do whatever it takes to survive.
Tonight, Wednesday, April 30th, at 7PM PST, director/co-writer Anthony C. Ferrante, actors M. Steven Felty (Pa Rusk), Trish Coren (Lizzie), Joe Hartzler (Doc), Brent Lydic (Nash), Arianne Fraser (Tiffany) and Elizabeth Prestel (Candy), composer Alan Howarth, editor Christopher Roth, and conceptual designer/storyboard artist Jacob Hair will be signing at Dark Delicacies in beautiful Burbank, CA, so make sure you get your ass out there and say hello!
