A new indie horror flick has just hit my radar, and judging by the talent involved in this one, I know that this one will be off the hook, and you will be an utter fool to turn the other way! Recently the gorgeous and extremely talented actress, Melantha Blackthorne, hit me up with the wonderful news that Adam R. Steigert’s A Grim Becoming has wrapped principal photography as well as unleashing a slew of photos to share with you all.
From the Press Release:
A Grim Becoming follows Raphael, a young and bitter executive who is on the verge of losing a multimillion dollar architectural deal with a large distribution company lead by the awkward Stanford brothers. Raphael suffers a sudden death in his family and has to immediately leave to go to the funeral in his home town of Metzburgh.
Seeing this as his big chance to get ahead is Wayne, a jealous co-worker who is in competition with Raphael. As Raphael returns to Metzburgh, he experiences a life changing event: witnessing a Grim Reaper taking a soul. This sighting results in Raphael becoming a Reaper and having to explore his own conscience and the lengths he will go to get his own life back. But Death or as he likes to call himself “Magoo” has other plans for the naive young executive.
The film stars star Raphael (Brandon Williams), Melyssa Jade (Carrie), Devanny Pinn (Jamie), Jessica Cameron (Life), Magoo (Michael Sciabarrasi), Bill Oberst Jr. (Phill Looney) Melantha Blackthrone (Meryl Looney), Lynn Lowry (Mother) and Ocober (Aryn Fitzgerald).
A Grim Becoming reunites the talented scream queens Devanny Pinn (Jamie) and Jessica Cameron (Life). DefTone Pictures Studios Inc is also excited to be teaming up with Melantha Blackthorne for the first time. Melantha plays Meryl, sister to lead character Raphael. Indie film icons Lynn Lowry (Mother), Valerie Lynn Hanna (Charlie Stanford), and Bill Oberst Jr. (Phill) will also have supporting roles in the film.
DefTone Pictures Studios Inc has once again embraced the great talent of Western New York and many local actors and actresses round out the cast of A Grim Becoming. Patrick Mallette (Father), Melyssa Jade (Carrie), Mike Sarcinelli (Lance), Christopher Brechtel (Mick), and Aryn Fitzgerald (October) all have significant roles in the film.
What a freakin’ cast, eh? This one is going to be awesome, what with Lynn Lowry, Bill Oberst Jr., Devanny Pinn, Jessica Cameron, and Melantha Blackthorne among many others. Watch this space, folks.
In regards to Melantha’s role in the film, here is what she told me;
Bill Oberst Jr. and I play husband and wife in this film and we managed to completely change our characters from that of your typical mourning parents to molesting sex fiends.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sold on that alone! Let us know what you think?
