Blood Fare is a Civil War ghost story with a modern twist, by J.A. Steel and Co-Producer Christian K. Koch.
“It is the tale of Corporal Henry Trout (S. Edward Meek, Wild Stallion), who in 1861 fought valiantly in a forgotten skirmish after the first battle of Bull Run. 150 Years later, he will come face-to-face with his descendants as the battle for blood continues on a haunted battlefield. Tyler (Brandi Lynn Anderson from the upcoming Syfy original series “Zeros”) and her brother, Chad (Adrian West), Henry’s fifth generation grandchildren, will challenge the very legend of Charon the Ferryman as the lines between the living and the dead become blurred.”
Along with Gerard, who plays the character of Professor Meade, mentor to the protagonist Tyler, Blood Fare‘s cast includes Michelle Wolff (“NCIS”, “Chicago Hope”, “ER”, and “Providence”), international action star Kim Sønderholm (Westbrick Murders), Savannah Ostler (Vengeance), Bridget McManus (Wanted), Scott Beringer (Ocean’s Eleven and 21), Brenden Whitney, Alison Trouse, Thomas J. Post, Antonio Lexerot, and April Knight. Marcus Intheam, Salt Lake City star radio DJ of “Marcus in the Morning” on Z-ROCK 94.9, and “The Real L Word Live Lounge” host Natalie M. Garcia add live broadcast talent.
Steel began stock footage filming in mid-August with the dedicated members of the Utah Civil War Association, a re-enactment group, including Meek. Utah Civil War Association member Amanda Bowman Jones will be composing the soundtrack along with Rob Lambros of “The Street” band, who provided the soundtrack to Steel’s third feature Denizen, winner of the Park City Music Film Festival Bronze Medal for Excellence. Steel rounds out her crew with Director of Photography Michael B. Call (127 Hours), Special Makeup Effects Supervisor Chris Hanson (Hellboy, Underworld), and Executive Producer Jessica M. Bair.
