Slasher queen Danielle Harris – who starred in Halloween 4 & 5, as well as Rob Zombie’s reimaginings, not to mention Urban Legend, Hatchet II & III and Camp Dread – has signed up alongside House of Wax’s Chad Michael Murray to head Andy Palmer’s Camp Cold Brook.
A ‘Joe Dante Presents…’ production, the film sees the legendary horror director producing along with Warner Davis of Petri Entertainment, Mark Alan of Renfield Productions, and Jason Van Eman and Ross Marroso of Weathervane Productions. It tells of a reality TV crew who quickly realise that shooting the latest episode of their hauntings show in the infamous Camp Cold Brook may not have been such a good idea.
The great Courtney Gains (The ‘Burbs, Children of the Corn) co-stars, with Michael Eric Reid (TV’s Victorious), Candice De Visser (The Funhouse Massacre), Mary Kathryn Bryant (Hellraiser: Judgement), Loren Lodesma (A.S.K) and Jason Van Eman (1 Mile to You).
Reality TV producer and host, Jack Wilson (Chad Michael Murray), finds himself in a tough spot. His finances have crumbled and his show, “Haunt Squad”, is about to be cancelled. In a last ditch effort to spark ratings to land a final season, he and his producers Angela (Danielle Harris) and Emma as well as their trusted cameraman Kevin choose the legend of Camp Cold Brook to save their show. The camp was host to a horrific incident, where the young campers were drowned in a nearby creek 20 years ago. Their arrival begins like any other episode. Cameras are placed, lights spark to life, but this is not going to be a regular episode of chasing errant noises and measuring for EVP. The terror here was real and the 30 are about to rise.
Filming on Camp Cold Brook is currently underway.
