Indie director Mel House dropped us a line yesterday with new pics from and an update on his “>Closet Space (review) follow-up, Walking Distance.
Filming wrapped on July 20th, and now House and the crew from Oddtopsy FX are working on ”a ton of really whacked-out FX stuff for 2nd unit” House told us. ”We should be done with that soon, at which point I can really jump headlong into the editing process and start getting shots to our digital FX team – who really have their work cut out for them as well. Fortunately, these guys have worked with the likes of Robert Rodriguez and Wolfgang Petersen, so I think we’re in good hands on that front.”
Needless to say, House has upped the ante on his second directorial effort, working with people who have been among the best in the business. The cast includes Adrienne King (Friday the 13th), Reggie Bannister, Kathy Lamkin (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre redux), Glen Morshower (Transformers) and Debbie Rochon.
For those unaware, Walking Distance takes place in a small, seemingly idyllic community where everything you could possibly need is in walking distance. But when the perceived utopia is infiltrated by a group of individuals with their own ties and agendas, stranger and stranger things begin to happen until reality itself is in question.
Personally I can’t wait to see how this one turns out, especially considering how much potential there was in House’s debut effort. The director says a teaser will likely be ready before Fear Fest 3, so stay tuned for word on that. For now you can dig on the new images we were provided and head over to the Walking Distance MySpace page to learn more!
