Set to begin shooting this April courtesy of Shattered Dreams Productions and Triple G Productions, Await the Dawn is an indie horror movie that can already boast some serious star-power. Written and Directed by Pablo Macho Maysonet IV, his team is led by Executive Producers Gerri Rothschild and Gregg Christie with Matt O’Neill and Maysonet IV also Producing. Check out the synopsis and confirmed cast members below.
A family in turmoil, traveling cross country in their RV to seek professional treatment for Jamie, the youngest child’s drug addiction. Their plans are quickly derailed as Howard, a desperate man with a terrible secret, ambushes them at gunpoint. With little to no reason given, he instructs them to transport him as far south as possible. However, they are quickly cut off by a mysterious pre-teen girl named Maggie. She may seem like a sweet all-American girl, but deep inside, she harbors an immense otherworldly evil. The troubled family must now put their trust in their captor, as they try to survive the night…and Await the Dawn.
We’re told that Await the Dawn is enforcing a strict “old-school” filmmaking ideology, meaning the movie will feature practical special effects exclusively!
“There’s always something missing when productions rely more on CGI than practical effects. Today’s audiences are not dumb. I think it’s only fair to give them something with a bit more authenticity” says Maysonet IV.
Leading the cast on their ride through hell are: Josh Server (Nickelodeon’s All That), Gregg Christie (This is the Year), Caitlyn Fletcher (The Red Suit), Mia Talerico (Good Luck Charlie) with Courtney Gains (Children of the Corn) and Dee Wallace (Cujo).
Supporting the cast are also: Vernon Wells (The Road Warrior) and Bruce Davison (Insidious: The Last Key).
