Shooting has been completed on EXHUMED, the 10th genre
feature by Scorpio Film Releasing, director Richard Griffin and producer Ted
Marr. Scorpio sent over a few exclusive photos to mark the occasion.
Scripted by Guy Benoit, EXHUMED, which we previously
reported on here, stars Debbie Rochon (pictured left and in 1st photo below), Sarah Nicklin,
Michael Reed, Michael Thurber, Rich Tretheway, Evalena Marie and Jonathan
Thomson in the Gothic (shot in black and white) story of a twisted outcast
family incapable of leaving their home. The psychological pressure eventually
gives way to violence, in a more serious vein than in such previous Scorpio
flicks as SPLATTER DISCO, NUN OF THAT and the upcoming DISCO EXORCIST. “EXHUMED
is a major change of pace for us,” Griffin says. “Guy’s amazing screenplay is
not filled with the typical ‘things that go bump in the night’ creatures like
vampires, zombies or ghosts. It’s more in the vein of the psychological horrors
of PSYCHO or WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? Not only are we examining similar
themes as those classics, but we also shot the film in glorious black and
white, in the 2.35 aspect ratio on the RED camera, and the footage is
breathtaking. With that, and the outstanding performances, we think that
EXHUMED is going to really shock and delight the audience.”
“Even though we are early in the process,” adds Marr, “from
looking at the raw footage, I strongly suspect that this will be our best work
to date. Certainly the best technically.” Postproduction will begin shortly, with a release set for
later in 2011. For more info, see Scorpio’s official website and EXHUMED’s Facebook page.
