Grit Film Works Filming 2 Horror Films Back to Back
The production company Grit Film Works may be new on the scene, but they definitely aren’t newbies to filmmaking!! Grit Film Works is owned by filmmakers James Cullen Bressack and Zack Ward and these two guys the indie horror scene. Both have already made an indelible mark on the genre and I’m really looking forward to seeing what these two can accomplish by combining their efforts and resources. Bressack and Ward worked together on the 2014 TV movie, BLOOD LAKE, with Bressack directing and Ward as one of the stars.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bressack and Ward are currently working on BETHANY and RESTORATION. BETHANY, which is currently filming, is written and directed by Bressack and stars Felissa Rose, Peter Jason, John Murray, Anna Harr, Olivia Rush, and George Murdoch:
Claire and her husband find themselves moving back into Claire’s childhood home only to have the abusive and traumatic memories of her mother come back to haunt her. As her husband starts to get more work, Claire finds herself mixed up in a fog of past and present with a mysterious figure haunting her memories. What is this small figure that is trying to reach out to her, and what does it want?
RESTORATION, which is written by Bressack and directed by Ward, is also currently filming. It stars Keith Jardine, Kevin Porter, Nick Principe, Pilar Schneider, Pam Hyatt, and Reatha Grey:
Restoration centers on a young doctor who moves to a new town with her husband while she completes her residency. Things seem to be going well, as she and her husband, a contractor, renovate their home, and meet a fun couple next door. Things take a dark turn when they discovery a diary buried within the walls of their house, and a terrifying spirit is awakened.
RESTORATION is slated for a 2016 release and BETHANY is set to release later in 2015.
