After announcing himself as a director in some style with his 2015 feature debut We Are Still Here, Ted Geoghegan has found the eyes of horror fans watching him closely. His second feature as director is well into post-production, and we have the first still to share with you.
Locked in as part of MPI’s international sales slate at this year’s American Film Market (AFM), Mohawk sees Geoghegan shifting away from the haunted house trappings of his debut into historical action horror territory. It stars Hemlock Grove’s Kaniehtiio Horn and Justin Rain (TV’s Defiance) as young Mohawk warriors who must call on supernatural forces to battle a revenge-hungry band of American soldiers. The film also stars Noah Segan (Starry Eyes), WWE star Jon Huber and Ian Colletti (Preacher).
After one of her tribe sets an American soldiers’ camp ablaze, a young Mohawk finds herself pursued by a ruthless band of renegades bent on revenge. Fleeing deep into the woods, Mohawk youths Oak and Calvin confront the bloodthirsty Colonel Holt and his soldiers. As the Americans seem to close in from all sides, the trio must summon every resource both real and supernatural as the brutal attack escalates.
Geoghegan reunites We Are Still Here producers Greg Newman and Travis Stevens, who between them have producing credits on Starry Eyes, House of The Devil, Cheap Thrills and Stake Land among many others.
Expect bloodshed, supernatural forces and sweet haircuts when Mohawk arrives in 2017.
