“It’s not a slasher movie, but it draws on some elements of that. You know, it’s got some really good practical effects done by a guy by the name of Doug Sakmann. We went for as much of the reality and practicality versus CGI, so those are the things that it shares with the slasher genre, but there are elements of crime drama in there, and it has kind of a unique approach.
The cast also includes Tyson Ritter (Preacher), Bai Ling (The crow), vanessa angel (Center pivot), Robert La Sardo (The mule) And Armen Garo (The dead).
