Glass Eye Pix and MonsterPants Movies are proud to announce that principal photography was completed in New York City on Tuesday for SATAN HATES YOU, written and directed by James Felix McKenney.
The film’s cast is led by Don Wood (TV’s COLONIAL HOUSE, IN A FIX) and Christine Spencer (AUTOMATONS) and also includes Angus Scrimm (PHANTASM, TV’s ALIAS), Reggie Bannister (PHANTASM, BUBBA HO-TEP), Michael Berryman (ONE FLEW OVER THE CUKOO’S NEST, THE HILLS HAVE EYES), Debbie Rochon (TROMEO AND JULIET, TERROR FIRMER) and Producer Larry Fessenden (HABIT, THE BRAVE ONE) with appearances by Pauley Perrette (TV’s NCIS, ALMOST FAMOUS) and author Max Brooks (WORLD WAR Z, THE ZOMBIE SURVIVAL GUIDE).
The film is inspired by Christian "scare" cinema of the 1950’s – 70’s and tells the story of two troubled individuals (Wood and Spencer) who find themselves on the fast track to losing their immortal souls.
"This film is significantly larger than anything we’ve done before. With a huge cast and multiple locations around New York, Los Angeles and even Hell itself, I went into this shoot fearing I bit off more than I could chew. But our incredible cast and amazing crew made getting this ambitions project in the can a breeze." says McKenney. "It was almost too easy."
SATAN HATES YOU is McKenney’s fourth feature film, following the critically acclaimed AUTOMATONS. The film is produced by Larry Fessenden’s company Glass Eye Pix, along with director McKenney’s MonsterPants movies, Lisa Wisely and Jeremiah Kipp. Eric Branco is the Director of Photography.
Says Fessenden, "It is always very special to team up with the Monsterpants gang. They make films the way I like it: seat of the pants resourceful, lotta heart, lotta love on set. That’s what Glass Eye has always been about and collaborating with McKenney keeps us honest. As for Satan Hates You, I think the title says it all."
Look for SATAN HATES YOU in early 2009.
