Got word about a new film through a press release and thought I would share it with all of you. It is for a film called SCARE TACTICS and at first I did think it was the SyFy prank show, but it is not. Instead it is "a twisted valentine to the genre" as they put it. The film will star Bill Oberst Jr. and is currently in its pre-production stage, but they are off to a good star with getting Oberst Jr. on board.
Check out the press release and poster for SCARE TACTICS after the jump.
“Gregory has a talent for writing great scripts,” co-producer Roxy Shih of Good Kids Productions said. "SCARE TACTICS totally freaked me out and I knew I wanted to be involved!”
Bill Oberst, Jr. is virtually a horror icon. His unsettling screen presence has haunted dozens of horror films and his role in “Take This Lollipop”--the most popular (and frightening) application in Facebook history has made him an international phenomenon.
In SCARE TACTICS, Bill plays horror film writer Grafton Torn for whom hypnotherapy and nightmares reveal memories that might or might not be real…and that might or might not be deadly.
“I’m usually the bad guy,” Oberst says. “But SCARE TACTICS lets me be the one getting tormented. The question is...by who? Or what? It’s great because all of the horror fans I know are bored with clichés. SCARE TACTICS plays with all the clichés and twists them around. So it’s really fun.”
Blair and Oberst are betting it will be fun. Bloody good fun.
