After breaking records and raising over $1 million on Kickstarter, YouTube critic Chris Stuckmann‘s horror movie Shelby Oaks is now filming, and casting info has been revealed.
Deadline reports that the cast for Shelby Oaks will include Camille Sullivan (Hunter Hunter), Brendan Sexton III (Don’t Breathe 2), Michael Beach (If Beale Street Could Talk), Robin Bartlett (Shutter Island), Keith David (The Thing), Charlie Talbert (The Big Short), Emily Bennett (Alone With You) and Sarah Durn (Where the Crawdads Sing).
So what is Shelby Oaks about, you ask? Here’s the synopsis…
“Shot as a traditional feature, but with some elements of found footage, Shelby Oaks is a horror film about missing paranormal investigators (the paranormal paranoids), the dark legacy they uncovered, and the far-reaching effects their investigation has as Mia searches for her sister Riley, the lead paranormal investigator, 12 years later.
“As Mia uncovers new and disturbing leads related to Riley’s disappearance, she uncovers evidence of a hidden supernatural evil dating all the way back to her and Riley’s childhood.”
The lead role of Mia is being played by Camille Sullivan.
Stuckmann wrote and will be directing Shelby Oaks for Paper Street Pictures, and he’ll also be documenting the process as a sort of indie filmmaking school for young filmmakers.
Stuckmann promises, “Our behind-the-scenes indie filmmaking experience will offer an open, honest, no-holds-barred look into what it really takes to get an independent feature off the ground. We believe this is something that has never been done before and are excited to share with you the progress that you are enabling by supporting this movie. Whether you have a passionate love of filmmaking, are a die-hard horror fan, or just want to keep up with what Chris is doing, we believe this experience will bring immense value and entertainment.”
