"WTF!" Strands Seven Friends in a Cabin in the Woods! Principal Photography Now Completed!
JULY 21, 2015 - UPDATE: Principal photography has been completed for "WTF!"
Some notes from director Peter Herro: "It took me a very long time to put together the cast and crew. I spent three months in auditions making sure the actors fit the parts, were up to the challenge, and had the same passion as I did. Equally as important was interviewing crew members to get the right people for the jobs. I am so happy and thrilled for the team I have working on this project. Everyone put in 100% and gave it their all.
It was a very intense 12 day run. Some days we managed to shoot a dozen pages! It definitely is a huge creative test to pull together so much detail in such a short amount of time. With locations all over LA and very long days days it became something that could only be done out of passion. I am thrilled to have put together an entire movie in a twelve day span. This would not be possible without the amazing cast and crew that put there blood and sweat into the project. (no pun intended).
The most challenging obstacle for this shoot were the emotional states the actors had to be in. It goes from a very fun MEAN GIRLS charade into a very serious SCREAM survival flick. This was challenging for everyone. They would go from having fun and throwing out one-liners to a more serious physiological thriller state of mind. In the end all of the actors pulled off amazing performances and really brought the movie to life!"
Currently there is no release date set for Peter Herro's new horror film, but we can all expect to see it pop up sometime in 2016! Expect more updates on this project as it gets closer to completion!
JUNE 10, 2015 - I just received a press release, letting me know that filming is about to begin for a new horror flick called "WTF!" I'm not quite sure what the tone of this movie will be (comedic? serious?), or what sub-genre of the horror genre it can be categorized as (I'm going with a slasher flick, maybe?), but I do at least know what it's all about.
Synopsis: Three years ago, twenty-two year old girl-next-door Rachel (Callie Ott) barely survived a brutal massacre that left her friends in pieces. Time has passed, and Rachel has moved on, but unfortunately history has a way of repeating itself.
Her close friends are spending spring break in a secluded house in the woods, and they have cordially invited her to join. Little does she realize that another bloodbath will be showing up as plus one. Once Rachel and her friends arrive at the cabin, the partying, sex, and terror begins.
From girls' only pillow fights, to debauchery in the bedroom, it's going to be a blast... until the stabbing, flesh melting, and castration starts. Seven friends will go into a secluded house for the best spring break of their lives, but only one will be alive to post about it on Instagram the next week, as Rachel's biggest fears become a reality once again. Will Rachel survive another bloody massacre?!
Cthulhu Crush Productions is excited to announce principal photography is set to begin on Peter Herro's "WTF!" June 15th around Los Angeles. Herro is directing from a script he co-wrote with Christopher Centanni and Adam Buchalter. Callie Ott (THE HORROR), Sarah Agor (HATCHET II, VH1's "SCREAM QUEENS"), Andrea Hunt, Ben Norris, Johnny James Fiore, Nick Reilly and Adam Foster will star.
This project sounds like it could have some promise. I sincerely hope that it's a straight-up slasher flick, because I am sick of zombies, home invaders, found footage films, and fake snuff films. It's time for a slasher film Renaissance dammit!
