New cast join Canadian horror flick THE VOID.
Filmmakers Steven Kostanski and Jeremy Gillespie (FATHER’S DAY) are tentacle deep in the production of their FX heavy horrorshow THE VOID and have just announced that TWIN PEAKS and SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD actor Kenneth Welsh will join actors Aaron Poole (THE CONSPIRACY), Daniel Fathers (PONTYPOOL), Kathleen Munroe (SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD) and Art Hindle (THE BROOD) as members of the cast.
Cameras started rolling Nov. 23 in Sault Ste. Marie, Canada, on the creature feature which depicts a lone police officer struggling to protect the staff of an isolated hospital from a violent cult.
We are thrilled to have such a strong cast of talented actors bringing our frightening script to life, said producer Walker.
Speaking from the film’s set – a decommissioned high-school that the production team has transformed into a film studio for an ambitious 20-day shoot – actor Aaron Poole said: Steven and Jeremy are making the kind of movie I wasn’t allowed to watch as a kid, but snuck into anyway. It feels like we’re breaking taboos with their hallucinogenic story and sickly genius practical effects.
Here’s the official synopsis:
In the middle of a routine patrol, officer Daniel Carter happens upon a blood-soaked figure limping down a deserted stretch of road. He rushes the young man to a nearby rural hospital staffed by a skeleton crew, only to discover that patients and personnel are transforming into something inhuman. As the horror intensifies, Carter leads the other survivors on a hellish voyage into the subterranean depths of the hospital in a desperate bid to end the nightmare before it’s too late.
