Indie Flick DeadLands Cry Gears Up Production


New straight up monster movie…

Jeremiah Sayys, who recently made his directorial debut with the film Of Silence, is gearing up to produce DeadLands Cry, a drama/horror/thriller, which he will also direct and star in for his production company WorldsLastHero Productions.

Raquel Castro from Jersey Girl, is currently in talks to star opposite Sayys as his character Tristan’s fifteen-year-old daughter, Sydney.

The film is about a young father, Tristan, and his fifteen-year-old daughter, Sydney, moving to a new town to start a new life; but they find themselves suddenly trapped inside a schoolhouse with six others, struggling to survive a vicious twenty-foot-tall, thirty-foot-long monster.

“I’m extremely excited about DeadLands Cry,” said Sayys. “It’s a straight-up monster movie, but not your typical monster movie. We have all seen the basic premise of a group of innocent victims trapped and slaughtered by a creature or beast many times in horror films, and yes, DeadLands Cry does have that element, but it also has deeper, emotional elements in it that few, if not any, monster movies have.”

“The monster is a metaphor and metaphysical to what the story is really about. The drama incorporated into the story is like no other in a monster movie. It breathes new life into the horror genre and captivates you with it before the blood and gore start flying. The story also has a strong action component and a unique backstory, as well as a universal message that will resonate long after the viewing experience. The bond between the father and daughter offers a new element to the horror genre – one that inspires family ties and strength of character,” explains Sayys.

Sheila Lange will also serve as a producer on the film.
