Wow. Shock Till You Drop got the exclusive scoop of the 3 recently cast leads for the NIGHT OF THE DEMONS remake, being helmed by Adam Gierasch (AUTOPSY) with the approval of the original’s director Kevin Tenney. Shannon Elizabeth (AMERICAN PIE, THIR13EN GHOSTS, CURSED, SCARY MOVIE, JACK FROST), Monica Keena (FREDDY VS JASON) and Diora Baird (THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE BEGINNING) will top line the new NIGHT OF THE DEMONS! (Schwing!)
The Shock article states, "Elizabeth is set to play Angela – previously essayed by actress Amelia Kinkade in the original – a possessed party hostess who makes things a living hell for her friends."
Shooting begins in September in New Orleans from a script by by Gierasch and writing partner Jace Anderson (the duo penned Dario Argento’s MOTHER OF TEARS).
Bloody-Disgusting just got in some quotes from the director himself. He tells B-D, " "They’re a gorgeous cast, aren’t they? We’re lucky! But I’m also excited to work with Monica, Shannon and Diora because they’ve got serious acting chops and have great ideas about their characters. I come from an acting background originally, and working with the actors is one of my favorite parts of directing."
He continues, "My aim is to have the movie be an absolute blast: a balls-to-the-wall demon gorefest that remembers that horror movies should be fun. Our demon setpieces riff on some classic moments from the original as well as introduce new craziness. Each demon will have its own distinct look and personality. I’ll be using classic ’80s punk songs in the score. I’m making the movie that would have been my absolute favorite when I was seventeen. It’ll have punk rock, demons, gore and gorgeous women: all the things that make life worth living!" Amen to that!
More when we hear it!
