Meat Loaf to Star in Masked Killer Flick from Beaver Dam Director

ON

A brief bit of news for those with a love for horror films featuring masked maniacs.  Variety reports Meat Loaf and Big Love actor Douglas Smith will star in Stage Fright for writer-director Jerome Sable.

Sable helmed the acclaimed short film The Legend of Beaver Dam (pictured).  Stage Fright will mark his feature debut.

The film – which is not a remake of Michele Soavi’s ’87 slasher StageFright – concerns a teen who lands a gig in a Broadway-bound show which is stalked by a masked killer.  Here is a synopsis we snagged from a casting call…

Starry-eyed, teenage kitchen hand Camilla Swanson lands herself a role in the Broadway-bound showcase at the musical theatre camp where she works, but just as rehearsals begin, blood starts to spill. The production is being terrorized by Metal Killer, a masked slasher who screams death metal while hunting down every last one of his sworn enemies: pretentious musical theatre snobs. In the tradition of SCREAM as well as classic movie musicals, is a fun and frightening thrill ride that skewers gleeful musical theatre people while they sign their hearts out – literally.
