Currently filming in upstate New York is Mohowk, a revenge-horror from We Are Still Here director Ted Geoghegan (pictured right).
The action-heavy film stars Hemlock Grove’s Kaniehtiio Horn as a young Mohawk who must call on supernatural forces to battle a revenge-hungry band of American soldiers. The film also stars Justin Rain (TV’s Defiance), Noah Segan (Starry Eyes), WWE star Jon Huber and Ian Colletti (Preacher’s Arseface).
After one of her tribe sets an American soldiers’ camp ablaze, a young female 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 reteams with 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.
After making a huge splash with his acclaimed directorial debut, Geoghegan marked himself as a talent to watch, and the horror world will be keeping a close eye on this.
