THREADING OVER DARK UNSPOOLS THIS YEAR

Burning Grounds Independent Media has announced that its horror film THREADING OVER DARK will begin shooting this May on various locations in and around San Francisco and the San Fernando Valley. With a budget of slightly under $1 million, the Super-16mm production will be produced by Anthony Alfano and directed by Greg Stechman, reuniting with actress Jennifer Santich, the star of his previous feature UNFINISHED MANUSCRIPT. Stechman also wrote the script (described by Alfano as ?one of the most twisted and frightening specs I have ever read?), which centers on Karen, a nurse who is raped by a co-worker and winds up with both an unnatural pregnancy and a murderous stalker who has been targeting rape victims. ?I believe in surprises,? Stechman says in Burning Grounds? press release, ?and I believe in serious scares. There is no humor in this film, just 280 gallons of fake blood.?

Stechman also gave Fango some additional details about his intentions for THREADING OVER DARK. ?It?s a very realistic movie, and the one thing the producer asked when I brought him the script was, ?If we take away the blood and the bells and whistles, will the audience still stay in the theater?? So the movie needs to operate on two levels to work?one is sheer terror, and the second is raw human emotion. It?s one thing to make your audience sympathize and care about your characters, but it?s another to actually make them feel exactly what they?re feeling at that moment. IRREVERSIBLE did that, and we?re going for the same thing?the original intent was to make something along the lines of IRREVERSIBLE with supernatural elements. We?re actually shooting our film in the same format he shot his, with similar editing techniques. I want to let foreign influences into this film; I?m also influenced a lot by Takashi Miike, the JU-ON films and the Pang brothers.?

THREADING will also star Roger Hudson and Matthew Donaldson, with Greg Travis (of STARSHIP TROOPERS and Tobe Hooper?s upcoming TOOLBOX MURDERS remake) in talks to join the cast. The film?s official site will open February 14, and allow horror fans and aspiring filmmakers to interact with cast and crew throughout production. Stechman is also a co-producer and co-writer on Ryan E. Heppe?s chiller THE HARVEST, which starts shooting July 20.
