ALEXANDRA BRECKENRIDGE TALKS ABOUT HER CHARACTER IN UPCOMING INDIE HORROR ‘DARK’

DARK BANNER 1

American Horror Story’s Alexandra Breckenridge (everyone’s favorite young red-headed maid from the first season) talks a bit about her role in the upcoming film DARK, produced by horror legend Joe Dante, directed by Nick Basile, and written by GUT writer/director Elias. If you’ll recall from previous posts here on Backwoods Horror, DARK is currently raising funds on the crowdsourcing site Kickstarter, and they’re getting very, very close to their goal, but they still need your help!

Synopsis:

Set in NYC during the blackout of 2003, Kate, a struggling 30-something model with a troubled past, has just moved into her girlfriend Leah’s Brooklyn loft but already doubts about their relationship have begun to loom. When Leah leaves for the weekend, Kate unexpectedly finds herself alone in the apartment in the midst of the worst blackout in North American history. As darkness falls over the city, Kate’s paranoia grows and she begins to believe someone in the building is stalking her. With no one to help her and escape out of reach, Kate is forced to confront her deepest fears as she fights to survive through the night.

HELP THE NEW JOE DANTE PRODUCED THRILLER ‘DARK’ BECOME A REALITY VIA KICKSTARTER

DARK BANNER 1

On August 14th, 2003, New York City went… DARK

Produced by legendary horror director/producer Joe Dante and written by GUT writer/director Elias, DARK (currently raising funds on the crowdsourcing site Kickstarter) is a new feature thriller directed by Nick Basile, who has produced and directed a series of independent films including Festival Award winners Slasher FlickBeyond Dreams and The Man Who Knew Belle Starr. Basile most recently directed the feature documentary American Carny: True Tales from the Circus Sideshow (in wide release throughout the US and Canada) which the Film Institute of Lincoln Center named among its prestigious Top 10 Documentaries of the Year.

“I’ve always been attracted to projects by young filmmakers who are trying to do something within their means,” says Dante, “DARK has been conceived in this manner and has the opportunity to be a very suspenseful and commercial picture.”

‘AMERICAN GRINDHOUSE’ DIRECTOR TO MAKE DICK MILLER DOCUMENTARY

Source: Fangoria

“We can all agree the legendary Dick Miller deserves his own doc. So, let’s all agree to help out.

Elijah Drenner, the man behind 2010’s exploitation doc AMERICAN GRINDHOUSE and a host of DVD special features over the years, wants to tell the tale of a Hollywood legend. One Dick Miller.

Miller, who came up under Roger Corman (and could be best known for his starring role in the wonderful horror beatnik sendup A BUCKET OF BLOOD), has gone on to cinema infamy as an unstoppable character actor, and frequent collaborator/friend to Joe Dante.

Drenner is aiming to fund THAT GUY DICK MILLER, as it’s titled, through Kickstarter. It’s lunacy a higher financier doesn’t want in on this, but this is a great opportunity for film fans to aid something great and wholly deserving of donation. Miller, who’s worked endlessly over the years with the likes of Fred Dekker, Quentin Tarantino, Samuel Fuller, James Cameron and more is a cinematic mainstay and the type of fellow with stories galore, both personal and professional, and when the likes of him, Joe Dante, John Landis, etc get talking, you want to listen.

You can learn much more about Drenner’s plans with THAT GUY DICK MILLER, and see rewards for donating (including original scripts from Miller, a date with Dick and more) at the film’s official Kickstarter. You can also see the pitch video, below. Thanks to Badass Digest for the heads up.”
