RISE OF THE SCARECROWS: HELL ON EARTH, an Xposse Production, has wrapped filming. The re-boot or re-imagining of the 2003 micro-budget cult classic “RISE OF THE SCARECROWS” is going to be released worldwide on most streaming services for the Halloween season with a special edition Blu-ray to follow. Written/Directed and co-produced by Geno McGahee, RISE OF THE SCARECROWS: HELL ON EARTH a film in the style of FRIDAY THE 13TH with three bloodthirsty monsters ready to kill.
Produced by McGahee (RISE OF THE SCARECROWS, AMITYVILLE COP), Gregory Hatanaka (SAMURAI COP 2, MAD COWGIRL), Pete Baez (REMEMBER THE TIMES), Matt Hebert (ZOMBIE BUSTERS: OUTLIVE THE DEAD) and Jesse Delta Ariel Waegelein-Hall (REVENGE), the film promises to bring the monster in the woods slasher back complete with good gore and twists and turns along the way. The film will be released by Cinema Epoch and Cineridge Entertainment.
The film’s approach to the 80’s slasher in the woods follows the formula with practical effects and night shooting, avoiding the day for night terrible effect that so many filmmakers use to simulate night and focusing on the old school approach. There is no CGI in RISE OF THE SCARECROWS: HELL ON EARTH, but there is plenty of focus on the gore with the experienced gore team of Matt Hebert, Jesse Delta Ariel Waegelein-Hall, and Mechanical Advisor, Rick Caride, creating movie magic.
The cast features great performances by Eric Michalian (KILLERS CLUB), Lorrie Bacon (THE LOVE TRIANGLE), Brent Northup (SICKLE, SCARY TALES), Jesse Delta Ariel Waegelein-Hall (REVENGE), Sharon Marr, Matthew Hebert, Phil Godeck (SUPER DUPER HEIST SQUAD), Brandon Macey, Martin DuPlessis (SICKLE, FAMILY SECRET), Justin Hortie, Mikey Provencal, Samantha Provencal, Warren Hong (MAD COWGIRL, BODY OF NIGHT), Frank Palangi (TURNED), Madelynn Wells, Aaron Schacte, Pawel Watracz (RISE OF THE SCARECROWS), Bayindir Citak, and David Finkelstein.
