Production on Elias’ followup to his intense and equally enjoyable film GUT is planned to begin this fall, when filmmaker Elias and his Clayface Pictures start work on AYLA (AKA- “A.” in Seattle and the surrounding areas. The Elias’-helmed GUT was an intense, shocking horror film, one that is impossible to shake. If AYALA is anything like GUT, then I’m excited to see some interesting fun, because it’s obvious that Elias has such a great knack for crafting solid, character-drive stories. Also written by Elias, AYLA will be produced by The October People’s Matt Medisch, Jeremy Berg, and John Portanova (“The Invoking“, “The Device“, “Valley of the Sasquatch“) are producing. We were sent the brand new poster for the film, which looks like quite the entertaining horror flick.
The story of AYLA centers on Elton (Nicholas Wilder), a man haunted by the mysterious death of his 4-year-old sister, who brings her back to life thirty years later as an adult woman, with dire consequences.
Leading the cast, are upcoming genre faves Tristan Risk (AMERICAN MARY, THE EDITOR, FETISH FACTORY) and Nicholas Wilder (GUT) with more cast and production announcements planned soon, including a Kickstarter campaign beginning June 9th in partnership with Back to the Movies. The campaign will feature perks that will be tailor-made for horror and film fans, with multiple choices being offered within a single reward level and something for every backer to take home.
