Dread Central have followed up on their exclusive from last month on Stacey Davidson's latest horror effort Sweatshop. And now the world can see the official cast announcement and first pics of all the major players!
For those of you who may have seen Davidson’s first film, Domain of the Damned (aka Necrophobia), most of the cast for Sweatshop will seem familiar; starring in Sweatshop is Ashley Kay who, as Davidson puts it, "[had] so many bit appearances in "Domain" that she could literally be a drinking game." Kay plays the lead, Charlie...of course, knowing nothing about the plot it’s hard to tell you guys what that role entrails, but I can almost guarantee she’ll get bloody at some point.
Also returning from Domain are Naika Malveaux, Krystal Freeman and Brent D. Himes. Cast members from Mel House’s Closet Space are also part of Sweatshop, including Danielle Jones, Peyton Wetzel, Melanie Donihoo (the girl on the Closest Space poster).
"Of course no horror cast is complete without a maniacal, bloodthirsty murderer!" Davidson told Dread Central, "Filling the shoes of "The Beast" is Jeremy Sumrall, who many convention goers may know as proprietor of the horror merchandise boutique Necrobilia."
"These guys have been so much fun to work with, I sometimes have to remind myself that it is in fact work." Davidson admitted, "Be sure to say hi to the cast if you see them on the 2008 convention circuit! We're really looking forward to getting out there, meeting more horror fans, and showing the world the vision of insanity that is Sweatshop!"
