FESSENDEN/SCARE FLIX RULE THE ROOST

Scare Flix, the horror production arm of Larry (WENDIGO) Fessenden?s Glass Eye Pix, reports that production has been completed on THE ROOST. The second entry in the Scare Flix series (after James Felix McKenney?s OFF SEASON), the vampire thriller was written and directed by feature newcomer Ti West and stars Wil Horneff (from GHOST IN THE MACHINE and the SHINING miniseries) and his sister Vanessa, along with Karl Jacob, Sean Reid, WENDIGO?s nasty hunter John Speredakos and a cameo by Fessenden himself. McKenney serves as associate producer, with visual/digital FX by Brahm Revel and Glenn McQuaid and makeup by Daniel J. Mazikowski. It was shot on Super 16mm on location in rural Delaware.

Fessenden says the Scare Flix approach is inspired by that of Roger Corman: ?It?s not so much that I loved the Corman films,? he says, ?as I loved the legends of deals, guts and balls that drove Corman and his myth: launching movies because the set was available, those sorts of stories. In any case, he?s associated with many cinema heroes: Karloff, Price, Nicholson. He created a fertile environment for old-timers to wrap up their careers and newcomers to prepare for theirs. Corman made Westerns, war movies, biker films and the horror movies with Vincent Price. That?s the model for Scare Flix. Add to that my own interest in the diverse range of tones and subtexts that dwell in the horror genre, and the array of affordable tools available to the creative filmmaker today, and we have the makings of some classy entertainment. All we need now are some drive-ins to show these pictures!? Fessenden adds that he may round out the first Scare Pix trilogy with a feature he?ll direct himself.
