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 in the process of creating their second chiller, The Headmistress, and they just announced filming has been completed.
The Headmistress was shot on location at an abandoned lakeside nunnery in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. “It was an aggressive schedule with a lot of long days,” reads a statement from Chung, Micklos and Sapiro. “But our phenomenal cast and crew pushed through and did top-notch work. Indie horror fans are going to be thrilled with the results! 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.”
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.
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 was shot on location at an abandoned nunnery in southern Wisconsin.
The Headmistress has no specific release date, but an earlier crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo estimated its release to be in the fall of 2020 (which could change).
