Oh, frack! “SALVAGE” director opens a “DEMON HOLE”; first photos


Josh Crook, who wrote and directed (with brother Jeff) the underseen Sundance 2006 horror feature SALVAGE, is back with a new genre picture called DEMON HOLE, for which the first few photos have been unveiled.

Screen Daily revealed the pics and gave word that Britain-based SC Films has taken on international sales rights to DEMON HOLE, which will screen at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Samantha Scaffidi, Austin Ramsey, Paris Campbell, Summer Bills and Adrian Denzel star in the movie, about six teenagers doing community service in a forest who encounter a demon unleashed by fracking on sacred Native American ground. This one has a horror/comedy vibe, and Crook tells the trade, “The current crop of horror movies has gotten too severe and grim. While scary, they’re also depressing. Taking influence from John Hughes as much as it does John Carpenter and Wes Craven, DEMON HOLE brings the vibe of the 1980s back and invites the audience to enjoy the ride.” Lori Crook produced and the executive producer is Allen Bain, who was also involved with the recent Asian/U.S. action flick REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS.
