Produced by Thommy Hutson and Amityville: The Awakening‘s Daniel Farrands, the pic stars Amanda Wyss of A Nightmare on Elm Street, Better Off Dead and even Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
“Meridith Lane is truly her father’s daughter. Doting, attentive, obedient. But after years spent confined together in a claustrophobic house, middle-aged Meridith’s relationship to her increasingly cruel and sadistic elderly father is veering toward disaster. When a figure from her past suddenly re-enters her life, Meridith is confronted with the harsh reality of her father’s monstrous nature. Deciding she must set herself free from his dominion, Meridith descends into a terrifying world of horrific visions, after one impulsive and irreversible act plunges her into a waking nightmare of her own making. And she is about to find out that, no matter what, the most important man in a girl’s life… is her father.“
The Hollywood Reel Independent Film Fest will take place on Thursday, February 18th at 9:15pm at Regal LA LIVE Stadium 14 Cineplex 1000 West Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90015.
“I loved the challenge of bringing Meridith’s heartbreaking story to life because the whole process was a thrilling roller coaster of emotion and tension,” Amanda Wyss explained. “It was also a dream to work with Thommy on his directorial debut. The experience created a special bond between us that really made it possible to make this movie. It was incredible to tackle such a demanding role and be surrounded by a cast and crew who were so protective and giving. I am really proud of the film.”
Hutson added: “I was thrilled to be making my directorial debut with a project that has so many layers and interesting characters. I’m also very lucky that Amanda took the leap to play Meridith, a woman whose emotions run the gamut. She brought so much to the role and worked perfectly against Patrick [Peduto], who played her father. It’s really exciting to know people will be watching this story unfold and taking a journey with these characters. Every one of the cast and crew pulled together and worked so hard, on such a tight budget and schedule, to make it all happen.”
