We were promised a lot more on Mel House’s sophomore directorial effort, Walking Distance, his follow-up to the cool indie flick “>Closet Space (review), and today we got it. And then some!
First off, director House has forwarded us an official plot breakdown for Walking Distance, which I’ve been hearing some very good things about from those who have read the script. Check it out:
An idyllic, small, self-sufficient community. On the surface, it seems like the perfect neighborhood. Everything you could possibly need is within Walking Distance. But…the pastoral exterior conceals a dark past and an even darker secret. As a group of individuals – each with their own ties and agendas with the town and each other – converges on the enclave, strange things begin to happen. Very strange things. Strange enough to test (and then break) the very fabric of reality itself.
Everyone wants a homecoming, but in this case you really can’t ever go home again. No matter how hard you try, you can’t escape your past, and you can’t outrun yourself. Both are always within Walking Distance…
Sounds suitably fucked-up, no? Yes! On to more Walking Distance goodies. Joining a cast that already includes Reggie Bannister, Debbie Rochon and new Fangoria Spooksmodel Shannon Lark are “24” and Transformers star Glenn Morshower and No Country for Old Men and Texas Chainsaw Massacre actress Kathy Lamkin!
This one’s shaping up to be something special, that’s for damn sure. Shooting will begin on June 5th in Houston, TX, so expect to hear a lot more about Walking Distance soon!
Ponder what kind of “things” would break your reality in the Dread Central forums!
