Indie Watch: Cast, Crew Bow Before the Holy Oak


Shooting begins next month

Writer-director Bryan Ryan is set to begin work on Holy Oak for Busted Buggy Entertainment early next month.

Here’s the synopsis. See you on the other side of this with more details: Over a century ago in the small Texas town of Holy Oak, a curse was born, all of the residents mysteriously disappeared and the tiny settlement was wiped of off the map. Today, the only surviving member of the cursed family, Kim Simon, finds herself drawn to an overgrown plot of land on the outskirts of where Holy Oak once stood searching for her long lost father, Phillip, a horror novelist who went missing years before.

Along with her father, a handful of friends and two detectives, Kim discovers that not everything is as it seems in Holy Oak as the witches and other ghostly beings in the unearthly woods re-appear to let them know that the curse of Holy Oak is far from a legend and their unspeakable reign over the area may have only just begun.

AJ Bowen will star alongside Courtney Daniels, Bill Moseley, Pisha Warden, Andre Bolourchi, Jessica Whitaker and Corbett Tuck. Almost Human will handle effects.

“I am beyond thrilled to have a talented group of actors like AJ, Bill and Courtney all coming on board to help bring my vision of Holy Oak to life,” said Ryan. “Both Bill and AJ are brilliant actors in their own right and Courtney is going to prove to audiences to be quite a discovery of talent. Holy Oak is shaping up to be a dream collaborative experience for me as a director.”
