Brian Metcalf’s Fading of the Cries, which stars the rockin’ cast of Brad Dourif, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Elaine Hendrix, Mackenzie Rosman, Hallee Hirsh, Jessica Morris and Jordan Matthews, will be released theatrically on June 24 in Los Angeles and July 8 in New York from Eammon Films.
“Evil is resurrected in a small town threatening to destroy mankind and the only force that can stop it is a young man wielding a powerful sword.
Jacob (Jordan Matthews), a young man armed with a deadly sword, saves Sarah (Hallee Hirsh), a teenage girl, from Mathias (Brad Dourif), a malevolent evil that has begun plaguing a small farmland town while in search of an ancient necklace that had belonged to Sarah’s Uncle (Thomas Ian Nicholas).
Jacob sets out to get Sarah home safely, running through streets, fields, churches and underground tunnels, while being pursued by hordes of demonic creatures. Along the way, both come to terms with the demons within themselves – Sarah begins to understand her hatred towards her mother (Elaine Hendrix) and sister (Mackenzie Rosman) may be unjustified and Jacob discovers the secrets of his past, realizing the only way to truly defeat the demons is to return to the very place his family was murdered.”
They explain that for an indie film, Fading of the Cries is epic in scope – with more than 1,100 special effects, an astronomical number for such a film. There is every type of visual effect in this film—digital doubles, keying, crowd-simulation scenes, CG blood, compositing, digital environments, matte paintings and more.
