MAD Z Productions is currently in post-production on its
next thrilling horror project:
occult thriller "The Devil's Nightmare"
A remake of Jean
Brismee's Belgian/Italian film from 1971 (not released in America until 1974
and alternately titled "La plus longue nuit du diable", "Castle of
Death", "La terrificante notte del demonio" and "Succubus"), "The Devil's
Nightmare" is once again written and directed by Dave Zagorski. Regular MAD
Z players Johnny Donaldson, Kt Baldassaro, Colin Allen, Ray Hryb, Dina Baker
and Chris Shanahan (all encoring from "Killing Brooke") return, alongside
newcomer Camee Manderfield in this gory tale of demonic temptation and
terror. Jared Skolnick, an award-winning director in his own right (for his
short H.P. Lovecraft adaptation The Music of Erich Zann), reprises
cinematographer duties from Killing Brooke, shooting on the Canon EOS 7D.
The original Devil's
Nightmare starred flame-haired Italian screen goddess Erika Blanc (best
known for her role in Mario Bava's classic ghost story "Kill Baby, Kill!")
as an evil succubus preying on a group of traveler's stranded at a remote
castle owned by a cursed baron. Presaging David Fincher's "Se7en" by over
two decades, Blanc killed each unlucky traveler in accordance to one of the
seven deadly sins. This new Nightmare will retain the sinful focus, but
modernizes the story by updating the locale to an experimental rehab
facility where people's addictions will become the end of them.
Dr. Henry Rhoneberg
(Shanahan) has developed an experimental technique to completely cure people
of the vices that rule their lives and has gathered a motley assortment of
addicts - from an easily angered alcoholic to a rock star with a love for
excess (is there any other kind?) - to a remote facility for treatment. No
sooner does the group settle in before interpersonal relationships begin to
conflict, people fall into bed, a mysterious stranger arrives at the
door...and then the killing starts...
In an effort to bring a higher
profile to the project, MAD Z Productions has enlisted the veteran indie
scream queens Seregon O'Dassey ("Cleric", "Ghost Watcher 2") and Devanny
Pinn ("15 til Midnight", "Nude Nuns with Big Guns").
