Yellow Veil Pictures has boarded world sales on the latest horror film from indie genre icon Larry Fessenden—and the official poster has been unveiled!
The film is called Blackout and follows a fine-arts painter convinced he is a werewolf wreaking havoc on a small American town every full moon. The press release notes that this is the latest addition to Fessenden’s “Monsterverse,” which includes his vampire film Habit and his Frankenstein-inspired Depraved.
“I am interested in finding new truths in the classic monster tropes of my youth,” says Fessenden, who wrote, directed, and produced Black Out. “The essence of each creature dictates the milieu of the film, and of course, the werewolf is both out of control and regretful so that duality shaped my story. I am excited to work with Yellow Veil again, they understand my filmmaking and have been fierce advocates.”
The cast for Blackout includes Alex Hurt (Foxhole), Addison Timlin (Depraved), Motell Gyn Foster (Clickbait), Joseph Castillo-Midyett (Death Saved My Life), Ella Rae Peck (Crumb Catcher), Rigo Garay (Crumb Catcher), John Speredakos (Wendigo), Michael Buscemi (Habit), Jeremy Holm (The Ranger), Joe Swanberg (You’re Next), Barbara Crampton (Jakob’s Wife), James Le Gros (The Last Winter), and Marshall Bell (Total Recall). The film is currently in post-production and will hit the festival circuit later this year.
