‘Dread’ Director Heads to Ghostly ‘Cassadaga’ Florida

Clive Barker alumni Anthony DiBlasi has signed on to helm indie supernatural thriller Cassadaga, starring Kelen Coleman (“CSI:NY”), Kevin Alejandro (“True Blood”) and Louise Fletcher (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest). The pic, penned by Bruce Wood, centers on a deaf girl who attempts to contact her late sister’s spirit during a seance but instead attracts the avenging ghost of a murdered woman. Bloody Disgusting learned that Rus Blackwell (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Hank Stone (Punisher), J LaRose (Saw 3, Mother’s Day, Insidious), and Amy LoCicero (“Drop Dead Diva”) round out the cast. The film is set in Cassadaga, Florida — known as the psychic capital of America. Filming began Monday in Florida. DiBlasi recently wrote, directed and exec produced Dread and served as exec producer for The Midnight Meat Train. He is co-producer for Hellraiser, currently in development.
