Canadian Film Centre alumni Audrey Cummings is set to make her feature length directorial debut with Berkshire County. Shooting is set to begin in April. On board for the project is film editor Michael Mason who has previously worked on several horror films, including Cabin Fever. Pre-production has already begun with Director of Photography Michael Jari Davidson (Familiar) and producer Burno Marino (Tapped/Sick).
The film set during Halloween, a self-loathing teen agrees to baby-sit for the night; but when a small boy in a pig mask shows up wanting Halloween candy, her night takes a horrifying turn for the worst. What follows is a violent home invasion that pushes the young woman way past what she thinks she is capable of in order to survive. If you are a fan of The Strangers, you should be looking forward to this one! Please take a moment and check them out on Facebook.
This has all the buzz of being the underdog that will take the Best Picture Oscar; while it is nominated for an impressive number of Oscars, 7, it's director, Ben Affleck, was seriously snubbed when he was not nominated in the Best Direction category!
