Glenn Chung, Christopher A. Micklos, and Jay Sapiro call themselves the THREE TORTURED MINDS….and through their production company of the same name, they produced last year’s indie horror hit The Nursery. Now they’re gearing up to create their second chiller, and today they revealed the cast list.
In THE HEADMISTRESS, a debt-ridden young teacher inherits an abandoned lakefront inn; and when she takes a group of potential buyers to visit the property, they discover a dark, sinister secret…as well as a malignant supernatural presence determined to keep them there forever. The film will be shot on location at an abandoned lakeside nunnery in southern Wisconsin.
So who’s in this? Headlining the cast is Chicago-based actress Katherine Bellantone, and starring alongside her will be Thomas J. McCarthy, Ayden Skye, Tom Dacey Carr, Hunter O’Harrow, DeChantel Kosmatka, David Sapiro, and Valerie Meachum.
“We are thrilled to have assembled a talented, versatile cast from across the country, with dozens of TV and film credits among them…including plenty of indie horror,” reads a statement from Chung, Micklos and Sapiro. “On our first film, the support raised from our awesome Indiegogo contributors was absolutely critical to our ability to produce a film with such high production values, and it will be equally important on THE HEADMISTRESS!”
Oh yeah….the crowdfunding campaign. If you visit this Indiegogo page you can contribute to the production of The Headmistress before it even starts filming. You can get a digital download of the film when it’s completed for $35, plus other prizes including a coffee mug, an autographed lobby card and more. The campaign just started and has 26 days to go.
The Headmistress has no specific release date, but the Indiegogo page estimates its release in the fall of 2020 (which could change).
