Sean Whalen, best known to horror fans as Roach from The People Under the Stairs, is set to make his feature directorial debut with a horror-comedy called Crust—and the plot has certainly got our attention!
“Crust tells the story of a lonely laundromat owner, Vegas Winters (Whalen), who keeps the leftover socks from customers and uses them to clean himself. When he gets abused and weeps into the pile of socks, it turns into a creature who seeks revenge on Vegas’ enemies.”
Alan Ruck (Twister, Succession) will also star in the film, which was co-written by Whalen and Jim Wald. Ruck will play “Randy Roberts, a cocky former child star who is spearheading a reboot of his childhood shows.”
Rounding out the cast of Crust are Daniel Roebuck (The Munsters), Rebekah Kennedy (Two Witches), Shawntay Dalon (Detroiters), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), Ricky Dean Logan (Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare), and Daniel John Kearney (Dark Circles). Whalen, Rose, Logan, and Kearney will produce.
Crust is set to go into production in Los Angeles this April.
