Way back in the day I was once at school, yep, crazy I know, but there was a time. Every once in a while we would ditch class to go sneak in a couple of horror flicks, but little did we know there was a crazed madman on the loose on the look out for those ditching class, thankfully I made it, but will you?
Below we have our first look at the film with a slew of official photos and all the details you need to fill you in on Bill Oberst Jr.’s latest. Lets just say, if it’s got the name Oberst attached to it you know you will be in for one freakin’ killer ride!
From the Press Release:
“Fresh from post-production come the first screen captures from DITCH, a feature length horror film starring Katy Foley as a girl with a past and Bill Oberst Jr. as a man with an axe.
DITCH’s lead cast include Bill Oberst Jr., Katy Foley and Zach Silverman with a special appearance by horror cult icon Lynn Lowry (CAT PEOPLE, THEY CAME FROM WITHIN, THE CRAZIES.) Oberst says the film will be “something different in horror; a brutal film with plenty of sizzle and blood but also with a surprising amount of heart and real characters you’ll care about. I am proud of what we did and honored to have been a part of it.” The actor says a highlight for him was working for the first time with Lynn Lowry, with whom he says his character has “a bit of a sensual post-mortem moment” with.
DITCH is directed by Joe Hendrick, who is also considering helming Oberst’s 2013 demon project LORD BATEMAN, with a screenplay by horror author Daniel P. Coughlin (FARM HOUSE, LAKE DEAD) & Ryan Coughlin. Producer is Megan Waters, with gore effects by Josh Russell (DANCE OF THE DEAD, YELLOW BRICK ROAD.) The film is in post-producution aiming for a 2013 release date. Official website: http://thefilmditch.com
