Plotdigger Films, Penny Spent Films, and Illusions Entertainment are proud to announce the completion of principal photography on their upcoming extreme horror feature Collar, Bloody Disgusting learned.
We also have a ton of stills, the poster and trailer for Collar, written and directed by Ryan Nicholson. It stars Nick Principe (Laid to Rest, Seed 2: The New Breed) as a satanic derelict with a taste for human flesh who terrorizes skid row’s prostitutes, junkies, and homeless, escalating his level of violence after he abducts a rookie cop played by Aidan Dee (“Caprica,” A Dangerous Man) on a routine patrol.
Collar also stars Mackenzie Murdock (Father’s Day, Manborg), Ronald Thompson (Hanger), and Mihola Terzik (Gutterballs). Shot on location in Vancouver, BC, Collar also features a heavy assortment of gruesome FX makeup design by Michelle Grady, who previously collaborated with Nicholson on Gutterballs, Hanger, and Famine. Lensed by Wolfgang Meyer (Seed 2: The New Breed, Stockholm), Collar was Nicholson’s quickest feature shoot, completed in 8 straight days, yet had the most locations, FX, and setups he had ever attempted.
Produced by James Morgart, Adam Torkel, and Keryn Thompson, along with German distributor Illusions Entertainment, Collar premieres April 2014 in Switzerland at Les Etranges Nuits du Cinéma.
