In our October ‘11 issue of SCARS, Boston-based filmmakers, Michael and Shawn Rasmussen “spilled their guts” about their experiences as writers of John Carpenter’s The Ward and as writers, directors, and general indie filmmaking conquistadors for their latest project, Dark Feed.
Even fiendish horror fan minds can appreciate a happy ending, especially when these stories get at the roots of something else we love: independent horror. So we’re psyched to share that the Rasmussens have announced Dark Feed is finished and is currently being represented by Ronna Wallace at Eastgate Pictures. (Wallace is best-known for selling Open Waters and producing Reservoir Dogs.) And – we’ve got a trailer.
If the mise en scene of the abandoned psych hospital looks familiar, it should. Dark Feed shares settings with some of the same buildings used in Shutter Island, and the art director of Session 9 handled the film’s production design.
Official synopsis: When a film crew moves into an abandoned psychiatric hospital with a shadowy past to shoot a low budget horror film, they get more than they bargained for. The late nights and lack of sleep begin to take a toll, and the longer this crew works, the more the leaky, wet building seems to be coming back to life, feeding off its new inhabitants.
