Hallow Pointe

This year hasn’t featured too many horror movies, good ones that is, but it looks like that will all change in 2011. One horror flick we have to look forward to is Hallow Pointe – a werewolf movie! Dead of Night Films sent out a press release Hallow Pointe not too long again, giving us some details on what’s to come.

Director Bobby Ray Akers, Jr. and Dead of Night Films, LLC are in development on the horror/thriller HALLOW POINTE. Production is set to begin filming in Louisiana in the fall of 2010 with an anticipated 2011 theatrical release.

HALLOW POINTE is a chilling story about love, life and what lengths you go through to try and save someone; all told within the classic horror staple, a creature feature. The film is centered around Madeline’s Closet, a quaint bed and breakfast hidden away from the world on a hidden dirt road in the woods. Henry and Jane are hoping a weekend there will help rekindle their love for each other. Staying there, along with a few other guests, everything seems to be going as planned…until the sun sets and the full moon lights up the sky. Instead of trying to save their marriage, they must now work together to try and save their lives.

The cast includes a list of genre-favorites, including: Leslie Easterbrook (THE DEVIL’S REJECTS, POLICE ACADEMY), Tony Todd (CANDYMAN, FINAL DESTINATION), Kane Hodder (FRIDAY THE 13th Parts 7 -10), Tiffany Shepis (Abominable), Betsy Rue (MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D, TRUE BLOOD), Cody Matthew Blymire (SON OF A WITCH), Scarlet Salem (TERROR OVERLOAD), Belinda Balaski (THE HOWLING, GREMLINS), Eileen Dietz (THE EXORCIST), Joe Knetter (THIRSTY, TERROR OVERLOAD), Jon Morgan Woodward (ONE HOUR FANTASY GIRL), Joe Bryant (FRAT HOUSE MASSACRE), Steve Barton (GEORGE A. ROMERO’S SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD), John Carl Buechler (HATCHET) and Lar Park Lincoln (FRIDAY THE 13th Part 7).

  2. My vision for HALLOW POINTE, is to bring back the feel of old school 80’s horror. I was really inspired by the Werewolf TV series and the feature films The Howling and An American Werewolf in London. Growing up a major horror fan, I feel today’s movies are lacking what made horror movies so great back in the 80’s. One of these being great creature development with hard core visual FX. After attending many horror conventions over the past few years, I feel HALLOW POINTE will deliver to the fans what they are asking for. I am a director that listens to his audience, and wants to provide them what they demand.
    The creature for HALLOW POINTE will be created by John Carl Buechler and Magical Media Industries, using a combination of stunt man/actor Kane Hodder in a latex suit and utilizing fully operational mechanical FX puppets. I firmly believe that doing all the special effects visually and with very little CGI will definitely result in a better product. Don’t get me wrong, CGI has its place; blending and enhancing certain elements, but not for creating a character. I feel some of today’s filmmakers have become too reliant on it, and in the process disappoint their audience with cheap tricks.
    I personally handpicked my cast, which consists of many fan favorite horror veterans. I personally know a lot of them from being around the industry for several years. They have appeared in films such as The Howling, The Exorcist, FRIDAY THE 13TH, CANDYMAN, My Bloody Valentine 3D and more. These actors have a large fan following, and do many special appearances every year. But the main reason I added them to HALLOW POINTE is because of what they can bring to the film with their talent and personal attention to detail with character development. I have also casted the film with some up and coming young talent that have motivation, determination, and devotion for their craft. I have a strong cast that I know will bring a unique element to HALLOW POINTE that has not been seen in film making in years.
    The technical direction that I plan to take is very raw consisting of very intense cinema photography. This will deliver an edgy grittiness to the project, and I plan on making good use of shadows and low lighting to give it that creepy moody feeling of the old 80’s horror film. My plan and ultimate goal is to always make it completely clear what the real fear is while taking my audience on a crazy scary ride leaving them wanting more.
    For the musical score of the film, I have asked Harry Manfredini of the FRIDAY THE 13TH fame to lend his talents. This will give us that final touch in making this the ultimate werewolf film, which will no doubt be slated as a horror classic.
