Writer/director Jay Woelfel gave us a quick update and passed on some exclusive new pics (see ’em below the jump) on his fright feature CLOSED FOR THE SEASON, which premiered at New Jersey’s Monster-Mania convention earlier this year. “I’ve tightened the edit since then,” he tells Fango, “the final FX have been cut in and the 5.1 stereo mix is done.”
CLOSED FOR THE SEASON stars Aimee Brooks (whose genre credits also include CRITTERS 3, MONSTER MAN and THE MANGLER REBORN) as a young woman who becomes trapped in an abandoned amusement park, haunted by childhood memories of the place and, along with the son of the former caretakers (Damien Maffei), tormented by a sinister clown played by LEATHERFACE: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE III’s Joe Unger. “We’ll be showing the final version this July at the Famous Monsters convention,” Woelfel says of the movie, which is being repped for worldwide sales by Artist View Entertainment. “I actually had offers from my top three choices for sales reps. That’s unusual. I ultimately went with Artist View because they seemed the most excited by the film’s being, as they said, ‘unique’ and able to stand out from the usual genre crop. The market for indie horror has toughened, as the DVD/home video market has gotten smalller, but Artist View said this one wasn’t routine, and that excited them.”
Woelfel has also been busy wrapping up post on another horror feature, SEASON OF DARKNESS, and reports that a new trailer for that one will be visible on-line soon. You can see CLOSED FOR THE SEASON’s official website here and its Facebook page here.
