Steven C. Miller Pays Homage to Spielberg in New Indie Horror 'Under The Bed'
Jonny Weston and Gattlin Griffith are starring in Under the Bed, an indie horror movie in production from director Steven C. Miller.
Weston (Johnny Dies in the End) and Griffith (who plays young Hal Jordan in the upcoming Green Lantern movie) play brothers who team up to battle a creature in what is being described as a "suburban nightmare" tale. The filmmakers say "they are making a love letter to early Steven Spielberg films," and are aiming for a tone of Spielberg-produced Poltergeist and Amblin productions from that time.
Peter Holden, Musetta Vander and Kelcie Stranahan round out the cast.
Brad Miska, who runs horror website Bloody-Disgusting.com, helped develop the story and is producing with Tom Owen and Will Clevinger. Zak Zeman, who worked with Miska on horror thriller A Horrible Way to Die, is exec producing via his Site B banner.
Eric Stolze wrote the screenplay.
Miller, repped by UTA and Aperture Entertainment, is best known for directing the 2006 zombie movie Automaton Transfusion.
