First Stills from Indie Creature Feature ‘Nail Biter’

Bloody Disgusting’s John Marrone caught up with director/producer Patrick Rea (THE EMPTY ACRE), who dropped a few new stills from his upcoming feature film Nail Biter, which has just about wrapped up photography. NAIL BITER, written by Rea and Kendal Sinn, is about a mother and her three daughters caught in a Kansas tornado – which instigates an encounter with some rather frightening creatures.We have two more weeks of shooting that will happen in the late spring in Lawrence, KS. Right now what we shot over the 5 weeks in the summer is cut together and looking great. And our lead, Erin McGrane – who plays Janet (the mother of the three daughters in the film) is currently being featured in the George Clooney film UP IN THE AIR.

He also announced a new feature film going into production. “We are planning our next feature, a scifi suspense film called THE MIRROR WATCHER, which we will start pre-production on in the fall. Aside from these, we’re also in post on our new short GET OFF MY PORCH (scored by Henry Manfredini) and in April we’re shooting a new short film titled RHINO, a drama/thriller about a drug dealer in a college town.
