Indie genre filmmaker Richard Griffin and his Scorpio Film Releasing go seriously ’70s with their latest flick, combining two of the decade’s most popular concerns in THE DISCO EXORCIST. It’s currently shooting in Rhode Island from a script by Tony Nunes, who passed along some pics you can see after the jump.
To fully capture that vintage vibe, Griffin is shooting THE DISCO EXORCIST, an NC-17-level “bloodsoaked tale of revenge, sex, black magic, disco dancing and mountains of cocaine,” on Super-8 film. “In this age of soulless state-of-the-art, 3-D, IMAX CGI-laden ‘filmmaking,’ he says, “we thought it would be exciting to bring the art of cinema back to its most basic. Film. Real film, with grain and scratches, warts and all. Plus, nothing looks as ’70s as Super-8, and few features are ever shot on this aesthetically pleasing grain.”
Produced by Ted Marr, THE DISCO EXORCIST stars Michael Reed, Sarah Nicklin, Ruth Sullivan and Brandon Luis Aponte (all from Scorpio’s NUN OF THAT and BEYOND THE DUNWICH HORROR), along with Rich Tretheway, Gio Castellano, Daniel Lee White, Alex Lewis, Alexandra Cipolla, David Erin Wilson, Lee Rush, Michael Thurber, Bruce Church and Bernie Larrivee. Casting for more roles is ongoing, and interested actors who are non-union and live in the New England area can e-mail headshots and résumés to
