Archstone Acquires ‘Dread’ Director’s ‘Cassadaga’

Cassadaga - 12

Archstone Distribution acquires the worldwide rights to director Anthony DiBlasi’s (The Midnight Meat Train, Dread) latest horror/thriller, Cassadaga, opening day-and-date in theaters and On Demand October 11.

Cassadaga stars Kelen Coleman (FOX’s “The Mindy Project,” Children of the Corn: Genesis) and Kevin Alejandro (HBO’s “True Blood,” CBS’s “Golden Boy”) and will be available for download across digital providers including iTunes and Xbox, and On Demand across DIRECTV, DISH Network and select cable providers.

“Cassadaga tells the story of Lily Morel (Kelen Coleman), a post-lingually deaf artist, who participates in a séance in the spiritualist community of Cassadaga. But instead of getting closure with her recently departed sister, Lily contacts the vengeful ghost of a murdered woman. As the ghost becomes increasingly angry and violent, Lily rushes to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding the woman’s death – a task that will bring her face-to-face with a sadistic serial killer who turns his victims into human marionette dolls.

Cassadaga is produced and written by Scott Poiley and Bruce Wood, and co-stars Louise Fletcher (Showtime’s “Shameless,” The Last Sin Eater), Rus Blackwell and Lucas Beck.

    Damn. Like “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane”, I saw this movie quite a while back. It’s pretty good for what it’s worth, but even though she’s easy on the eyes, the lead character does not come off as a deaf person AT ALL (i.e. one would think there should be some form of speech impediment). I don’t know about you, but little things like that remove me from the atmosphere the director/story writer is trying to convey.
