HELLIONS - CAMERAS GET ROLLING ON BRUCE MCDONALD’S HALLOWEEN HORROR
October 31, 2013 TORONTO – Maverick indie director Bruce McDonald (Hard Core Logo, Pontypool) started principal photography this week on the Halloween horror thriller >HELLIONS. Whizbang Films and Storyteller Pictures are producing from an original screenplay by Pascal Trottier (The Colony). The story follows a pregnant teen, played by Chloe Rose (Degrassi: The Next Generation), who must survive a Halloween night from Hell when three malevolent trick-or-treaters come knocking.
The producers, Frank Siracusa (Hobo with a Shotgun) and Paul Lenart, promise that “HELLIONS will deliver a perfect balance of scares, fun, and blood.” “Chloe Rose’s Dora is a drop dead gorgeous warrior princess who is going to blow people away— and not just because she’s packing a shotgun.”
“We’re also thrilled to have Bruce back making horror,” add the producers, “his Pontypool was one of the most original horror movies we’ve ever seen. Imagine what he’ll be able to do with a band of hellish trick-or-treaters.”
The film is produced with the participation of Telefilm Canada.
Bruce McDonald’s latest effort, The Husband, premiered at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. More casting news to follow in the coming weeks…
