Shooting has officially begun
Grannell has written the Evil script and is directing the dark comedy, set in San Francisco.
All About Evil centers around a mousy librarian, who has inherited her father’s beloved but failing old movie house. In order to save the family business she discovers her inner serial killer – and a legion of rabid gore fans – when she starts turning out a series of grisly shorts. What her fans don’t realize yet is that the murders in the movies are all too real.
The film stars Natasha Lyonne (Slums of Beverly Hills) and Thomas Dekker (From Within, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Cassandra “Elvira Mistress of the Dark” Peterson, Mink Stole (Hairspray, Serial Mom), Noah Segan (Brick), Jack Donner (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Julie-Caitlin Brown (Star Trek: The Next Generation) and Grannell’s alter-ego Peaches Christ.
Also on board for All About Evil are producer Darren Stein (writer/director of Jawbreaker), director of photography Tom Richmond (House of 1,000 Corpses), and costume designer Frank Helmer (Debs). On the San Francisco front are producers Brian Benson and Debbie Brubaker.
Following in the footsteps of last year’s independent films Milk and LA Mission, All About Evil will be filmed entirely on location in the San Francisco Bay Area where fog and blood make for the perfect Evil back-drop.
