Dark Sky Films and Snowfort Pictures will produce Ted Geoghegan's MOHAWK



Dark Sky Films and Snowfort Pictures have announced they will reteam and continue their multi-picture deal with writer-director Ted Geoghegan on MOHAWK, the follow-up to his critical and commercial horror hit We Are Still Here. The film is set to star Tiio Horn (Hemlock Grove, Blank Paige), a Mohawk native herself. Principle photography begins today in upstate New York.

The new project reteams Geoghegan with WE ARE STILL HERE producer Travis Stevens, producer Greg Newman and co-screenwriter Grady Hendrix, best-selling author of HorrorstΓΆr.

Kaniehtiio Horn (Hemlock Grove, Blank Paige) stars in MOHAWK, an intense horror and action tale.  After one of her tribe sets an American soldiers' camp ablaze, a young female Mohawk finds herself pursued by a ruthless band of renegades bent on revenge. Fleeing deep into the woods, Mohawk youths Oak and Calvin confront the bloodthirsty Colonel Holt and his soldiers. As the Americans seem to close in from all sides, the trio must summon every resource both real and supernatural as the brutal attack escalates. 

Other cast in the film will include WWE Superstar Jon Huber (aka Luke Harper) and an elite line up of genre names including: Justin Rain (SyFy's DEFIANCE / TWILIGHT: Eclipse), Noah Segan (LOOPER / STARRY EYES), Ian Colleti (AMC's PREACHER),  Robert Longstreet (TAKE SHELTER / AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS), Sheri Foster (Netflix's UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT), Ezra Buzzington (The Hills Have Eyes, Crossbones) and many others. 

Greg Newman (Producer), said: "We are thrilled to be working with both Ted and Travis again. We Are Still Here proved them to be a winning production team.  We're excited for Ted to take on a real-life horror story that promises to deliver action and suspense to spare."

Travis Stevens (Producer) adds "From Rey in THE FORCE AWAKENS, to FURY ROAD's Furiosa, to Wonder Woman to Jessica Jones, action audiences have shown a voracious appetite for strong, well-written female characters. We're excited to work with Dark Sky Films and Tiio Horn and introduce the character of 'Okwaho' to the diverse pantheon of action heroines who have come before her."
Director Ted Geoghegan said, "Mohawk is hard-hitting action-horror that subverts traditional genre tropes while delivering a timeless tale of good versus evil. We look to deliver a horrifying home invasion film where the home is North America itself."

WE ARE STILL HERE, Geoghegan's directing debut, was a wintry haunted house tale that premiered to rave reviews at SXSW 2015 and was released by MPI domestically through its genre division, Dark Sky Films. It quickly hit No. 1 on iTunes Horror. 

Dark Sky Films has seen success over the past year with such acclaimed productions as We Are Still Here, Deathgasm and Southbound.
Snowfort Pictures is currently in post-production on Karyn Kusama's segment for the horror anthology film XX. Other films from the company include Jade Porter's Mexican skateboard documentary Concrete Futuro, John Carchietta's high school romance Teenage Cocktail, Ricky Bates Jr.'s Trash Fire and Sarah Adina Smith's Buster's Mal Heart.

WHAT THE FEST!? Interview with Larry Fessenden on DEPRAVED

On this episode of the podcast, I had the chance to chat with genre legend Larry Fessenden. He was kind enough to carve out 20 minutes of his day to chat with me about his latest film DEPRAVED, the opening night selection for this year's WHAT THE FEST!? 
Shot on the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN,  writer-director Larry Fessenden’s brings his unique vision of the literary classic in DEPRAVED, set in modern Brooklyn. This meditative reimagining of the novel explores the crisis of masculinity and ideas about loneliness, memory and the subtle psychological shocks that shape us as individuals.
