the new horror film from director David Lee Madison, wrapped filming on May 2nd
after several weeks of on-location shooting in the
PikeCounty section of
The film stars Edward X. Young as the titular main character,
Stephen Geoffreys of FRIGHT NIGHT, Brad Loree of HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION and
Steve Dash of FRIDAY THE 13TH PART II.Also in the cast are Jessica Cameron of the
upcoming THE DEAD MATTER,
Connie Giordano, Thomas Churchill (also a producer on this film), and Vanessa
Romanelli of "A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila."I visited the set recently and spoke with
some of the cast and crew.
"MR. HUSH is a classic story of good versus evil," explains
actor Young, a veteran of over twenty-two horror films."Mr. Hush may be the most evil character I
have played in my career. Brad Loree plays Holland Price, our film's hero.As the film opens, he's a happy family man
when, on Halloween, my character comes in and kills his entire family and I keep
him alive.I do a lot of throat-cutting,
stabbings and mutilations, and long, protracted torture sequences.I play a very bad character indeed.I would say that in a modern sense, this is
the type of role that Vincent Price would have played as his worst, akin to THE
CONQUEROR WORM, or as it was known in
England, WITCHFINDER GENERAL."
"Holland Price is a very happily married, middle-aged
suburbanite," says actor and stunt performer Loree, who has over 25 years of
experience in the business."He gets
tormented from a demon from his grandfather's past, and he's on a journey to
find his daughter."

Director Madison's passion for Eighties horror, especially
his love of FRIGHT NIGHT, THE LOST BOYS, and NEAR DARK, inspired him to write
and direct MR. HUSH."I felt that it was
time to make another classic horror film with an iconic horror character, and
characters that you care about.It's a
film unlike the types of films that are made today, like the HOSTEL's and the
SAW's which are more about gore.So, I
was looking to make a classic horror film with monsters and cool characters
that you actually care about so that when something bad happens to these people,
it actually means something."
House of Horrors will have more updates in time for the
film's premiere scheduled for October 2010.
A Weekend of Fear
convention will be held at the Best Western in
on October 22 - 24, 2010, featuring the cast and crew of MR. HUSH.
