BAD FISH INFEST THE BAYOU
A mere two weeks after production on their currently filming supernatural horror feature DEAD BIRDS (starring Henry Thomas and JEEPERS CREEPERS 2?s Nicki Aycox) wraps up, the Silver Nitrate company will begin another Alabama-based genre production, titled BAYOU (also known as FRANKENFISH). Like BIRDS, the film will employ Robert Hall?s Almost Human company for the makeup and creature FX, which will include a full-scale 9-foot fish creature as well as many smaller specimens. The film is said to be a gory throwback to the creature features of the ?80s, complete with people getting bitten in half, tiny fish burrowing into bodies and a dark sense of splattery humor running throughout. The script is by BIRDS? Simon Barrett, and the director is rumored to be Mark A.Z. Dipp?the former digital FX artist who made his debut at the helm with SPAWN. No casting information has been released.
