Here are some behind-the-scenes looks at A Haunting in Thornby, a co-production from Raging Bull Entertainment and Khoury A. Marriot Productions.
This haunted house styled thriller completed production in May, and the film has secured a fourth quarter release through UnCork’D Entertainment. In the vein of Stanley Kubrick’s classic The Shining and Tomas Alfredson’s dark coming of age thriller Let the Right One, A Haunting in Thornby will unsettle audiences in a similar fashion this November.
“A traumatic event forces Tom (Rib Hillis) and Brenda (Jessica Morris) to move with their young son from Los Angeles back to Brenda’s small Northern California hometown. In their new homestead odd occurrences and bizarre, unsettling events begin to unfold. A century’s old secret that threatens to destroy the family begins to reveal itself in a horrifying fashion.”
Several photos from the film shoot at the Taft Ranch in Atascadero, California, have been released. The stills show some of the gorgeous sets and eclectic cast, which were part of production. Actor Judd Nelson, who stars as Mr. Franklin, is shown in two of the photos. Mr. Franklin is the owner of a prestigious architectural firm in the film. Also, actress and producer Autumn Federici is shown comforting young actress Vivienne Bollinger in between takes. Autumn plays Anne, a waitress who knows something about the mysterious old town. A dark secret lurks in this secluded home and in the town of Thornby. Part of that secret can be previewed in one of several stills found here, released by director Matt Hish.
