On his 23rd birthday Nick is summoned by his mother (Leslie-Anne Down) to the asylum where she has been institutionalized since his childhood. Hoping that her request to see him is a sign of improvement, Nick is stunned by her revelation that the father he thought was dead is really alive. He is alive and may know the origin of Nick’s terrible gift. Nick sets out to find his father with his best friend Ryan (Anthony Rey Perez) and girlfriend Eve (Alex McKenna). The trio are soon frightened and alarmed as every road they take on the journey leads them back to the same abandoned mansion – a house that only existed in Nick’s childhood imagination or so he thought. A house in a town that no map connects. Finally succumbing to the will of the house, Nick becomes embroiled in a battle with a dark figure (Tobin Bell). What started as a simple road trip soon turns into a terror-filled journey, full of horrifying twists and brutal surprise.”
Haunted, produced by Charles Agron Productions in Association with Blue Horse Productions is the first feature project under the newly formed Charles Agron Productions banner.
“We are thrilled to have HAUNTED as our first feature under the new entity. It doesn’t get any better than our cast and crew who are the best in the industry when it comes to this kind of story-telling,” stated C.A.P. topper Agron.
Salva reunites with director of photography Don E. FauntLeroy (Jeepers Creepers I & II) for the thriller. Haunted is written by Agron and Salva from a story by Charles Agron, and is produced by Agron, Salva and FauntLeRoy.
