BLACK EVE is a new low-budget horror feature with all the right ingredients: gore, violence, scenes of sexuality and a high body count. Currently in postproduction in Toronto, the film (see an exclusive first photo after the jump) is the brainchild of scripter/director Ryan M. Andrews and his fellow producers Neil Green (who collaborated with Andrews on the story) and Rob Sweet.
The plot centers on an abandoned department store where friends gather for what is promised to be a wild Halloween night of partying, sex, substance abuse—and, eventually, murder. The following morning, a woman (Eva James) awakens with no recollection of the previous night, and to the discovery that all the guests of the bash are dead. She does, however, have psychic abilities, which she uses to retrace the final memories of the murdered guests.
Green, who is producing for his company Fusion Films, tells Fango that BLACK EVE boasts the largest budget he’s ever had to play with. “Our goal as a company is to keep growing, and doing BLACK EVE was a great stepping stone to the next level,” he says. “Fusion has a very aggressive post schedule to successfully release the movie around Halloween 2010.” He adds that the BLACK EVE team served worked hard, sharing duties in a backbreaking effort to complete the film. “The amount of talent and creativity that everyone brought was mind-blowing,” he says.
One of the multiple hats Green wore was that of actor, playing the film’s masked killer. “It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be,” he admits. “Plus, having a great director like Ryan makes life easier as well.”
For his part, Andrews acknowledges the influence of past genre favorites. “I grew up on the horror films of the ’70s and early ’80s,” Andrews says. “Everything from THE EXORCIST and THE SHINING to obscure titles like HELL NIGHT and TERROR TRAIN. I loved them all, even the infamous ‘video nasties.’ I just wanted to make a straightforward body-count film.”
BLACK EVE’s cast includes up-and-comers Eva James, Neil Green, Kassandra Santos, Veronica London and Emily Schooley. See BLACK EVE’s Facebook page here, and keep your eye on this site for more BLACK EVE details as we get them.
