A western-themed horror film entitled The Prospector’s Curse has wrapped production near the remote town of Pontypool, Ontario. Set during the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890’s, the darkly comedic short is written and directed by Josh Heisie (Mail Order Bride) and produced by Bruno Marino.
“Theodore “Tubby” Ellsworth and Jack Smith are two criminals on the run, lost in the untamed wilderness. When they stumble across a mutilated prospector, dying on Native American land, they promise to give him a Christian burial. The fugitives break their oath and steal the old man’s gold, but that night the prospector’s corpse returns to make them pay!”
The talent lineup for The Prospector’s Curse includes David Roberts (Curious and Unusual Deaths), Johnny Quinn (Mind’s Eye: The Series), Amanda Ives (I Hate Toronto: A Love Story) and Robert Nolan (Worm). Rounding out the creative team are Director of Photography Michael Jari Davidson (SICK) and Special Effects Makeup Artist Carlos Henriques (Red: Werewolf Hunter) of The Butcher Shop.
