We Made a Movie! What Lurks ‘Under the Bed’?!!

I have some pretty exciting news to share with you dear readers that hopefully will get your blood pumping.

Outside of Bloody Disgusting, both Tom and myself produced a horror movie that we’re pretty damn proud of. Over the past few month’s we’ve been working insane hours on both the website and Under the Bed, our horror film inspired by classic Steven Spielberg films such as Poltergeist.

Jonny Weston (John Dies at the End) and Gattlin Griffith (The New Daughter, Changeling, Green Lantern) topline the latest indie from up and coming genre producing outfit Site B. The duo will play brothers, Neal and Pauly, respectively. The two will will deal with the universal fear of a monster under the bed…

Ever since we discovered his $30k zombie feature Automaton Transfusion back in ’05/’06, we’ve been huge fans of director Steven C. Miller, which is why we approached him to helm this love letter to the 1980′s. The script was penned by Eric Stolze from a story we co-developed together.

Peter Holden (The Social Network), Musetta Vander (Sindel in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation !) and Kelcie Stranahan round out the cast. Holden plays Terry, the brothers’ father, while Vander stars as the stepmother Angela. Stranahan plays Cara, Neal’s love interest.

The suburban nightmare reteams A Horrible Way to Die executive producer Zak Zeman with myself. Will Clevinger also produces. Cinematographer Joseph White is utilizing the latest anamorphic lenses to achieve the look of the film. White recently completed both Mother’s Day and 11-11-11 for director Darren Lynn Bousman. We used the same lenses that J.J. Abrams used in Star Trek and the forthcoming Super 8 (so it’s gonna look insane!) Practical effects were provided by Vincent J. Guastini, while LIT will be taking on VFX duties.
