Popular Youtube film critic Chris Stuckmann broke records when his upcoming horror movie Shelby Oaks raised over $1 million on Kickstarter, becoming the most funded horror movie in the platform’s history. The film’s cast has just been revealed and it includes horror legend Keith David (The Thing, They Live)!
Also in the cast are Camille Sullivan (Hunter Hunter) in the lead role, Brendan Sexton III (Don’t Breathe 2), Michael Beach (Swamp Thing), Robin Bartlett (Shutter Island), Charlie Talbert (Darlin’), Emily Bennett (Alone with You), and Sarah Durn (Where the Crawdads Sing). Here’s what we know about the film so far:
“Shot as a traditional feature, but with some elements of found footage, Shelby Oaks is a horror film about missing paranormal investigators (the paranormal paranoids), the dark legacy they uncovered, and the far-reaching effects their investigation has as Mia searches for her sister Riley, the lead paranormal investigator, 12 years later.
“As Mia uncovers new and disturbing leads related to Riley’s disappearance, she uncovers evidence of a hidden supernatural evil dating all the way back to her and Riley’s childhood.”
Shelby Oaks marks the feature directorial debut of Stuckmann, who also wrote the film. Production is currently underway.
