EXCL: Quaid Cast in Clive Barker’s Dread


Evans wants you to face your fear

Shaun Evans is poised to play a pivotal part in Clive Barker’s Dread. ShockTillYouDrop.com learned he’ll star as Quaid, a philosophy student interested in observing firsthand how people react to the things that horrify them. It wouldn’t be a horror story if Quaid’s experiment didn’t turn around to bite him in the ass. And it does.

The 28-year-old Evans has also starred in Being Julia, starring Annette Bening, and Boy A. In his latest film he’s joining previously announced leading man Jackson Rathbone (Twilight).

Dread is based on the Barker story of the same name which appeared in the author’s Books of Blood collection. Writer-director Anthony DiBlasi will adapt for producers Matador and Essential Entertainment.

Principal photography begins this month in England.
