Independent film company Blue Dusk Productions announces the September production of the horror-thriller feature film THE MORNINGSIDE MONSTER, to be lensed in the greater Atlanta area. Director Chris Ethridge and writer Jayson Palmer, the dynamic team behind the 2011 award-winning adaptation of Stephen King’s classic short story “Survivor Type”, have returned with a powerful original tale of brotherhood, right versus wrong and the true roots of evil.
THE MORNINGSIDE MONSTER stars indie horror icon Tiffany Shepis (Nightmare Man, The Violent Kind, The Frankenstein Syndrome), Atlanta star Robert Pralgo (The Vampire Diaries, Teen Wolf, The Blindside) and Georgia native Catherine Taber (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, The Old Republic, Just Like Heaven). The story unfolds around the discovery of a brutally murdered corpse in the woods of the otherwise-peaceful small town of Morningside, NJ. As the bodies pile up, Sheriff Tom Haulk and his deputy, Klara Austin, embark on a desperate race against time to catch the killer, pitting them against friends, enemies and even each other. “The film melds the frights and scares of the modern horror film with an emotionally gritty human story – and it’s a fantastic whodunnit!” says Ethridge.
