Horror Film Ditch Drops First Stills
“This Ditch party might be your last!”
Fresh from post-production, here come the first screen captures from Ditch, a feature length horror film starring Katy Foley and Bill Oberst Jr. In the film, Katy plays Jenny, a girl with a dark and disturbing past. As well, actor Bill Oberst Jr. plays a man from Katy’s past who has a score to settle – with an axe!
Ditch’s lead cast includes Bill Oberst Jr., Katy Foley and Zach Silverman, with a special appearance from horror cult icon Lynn Lowry (Cat People, The Crazies). Oberst says the film will be “something different in horror; it is a brutal film with plenty of sizzle and blood, but it also has a surprising amount of heart and real characters that you will care about. I am proud of what we did and I am honored to have been a part of it.” This actor says a highlight for him was working for the first time with Lynn Lowry, with whom he says his character has “a bit of a sensual post-mortem moment” with.
Ditch is directed by Joe Hendrick, who is also considering helming Oberst’s 2014 demon project Lord Bateman, with a screenplay by horror author Daniel P. Coughlin (Farm House,Lake Dead) and Ryan Coughlin. The producer for Ditch is Megan Waters, with gore effects handled by Josh Russell (Dance of the Dead, Yellow Brick Road). The film is in post-production and it is aiming for a 2013 release date.
The Ditch official synopsis:
“Jenny Bilson, a high school senior, is the perfect student, a wonderful daughter to a veteran police detective and an all American Dream. But the one mistake she made, which she doesn’t even know that she made, is about to haunt her in a very violent way. Throwing a high school ‘ditch party’ will end up being one HELL of a mistake! Her past returns to exact revenge on Jenny and anyone else who might get in the way.”
This one sounds pretty fun and even if it didn’t, it still has Bill Oberst, Jr. in it!! Oberst keeps proving himself time and again that he’s a true bad ass and a fantastic actor. Check out DITCH’s official website here. Now check out the stills below!!
