Two Microbudget Horror Films First on Slate From New Production Company (Exclusive)
Filmmakers James Cullen Bressack and Zack Ward are shooting the films back-to-back.
Grit Film Works is off to a terrifyingly fast start.
The production company, owned by filmmakers James Cullen Bressack and Zack Ward, is in the middle of back-to-back shoots for two horror films.
Bethany stars Stefanie Estes as Claire, a woman who moves back into her childhood home with her husband. The abusive, traumatic memories of her mother return to haunt her — as her husband becomes busier with work, she finds herself in a fog of memories — as a small figure tries to reach out to her.
Bressack is directing the film, which also stars Ward, Shannen Doherty, Felissa Rose, Brodus Clay, Peter Jason, John Murray, Olivia Stiefel, Anna Harr and Ellen Gerstell.
The second film, Restoration centers on a young doctor who moves to a new town with her husband while she completes her residency. Things seem to be going well, as she and her husband, a contractor, renovate their home, and meet a fun couple next door. Things take a dark turn when they discovery a diary buried within the walls of their house, and a terrifying spirit is awakened.
Restoration stars Emily O'Brien, Ward, Adrian Gaeta and Sarah Ann Schultz. Ward also is directing the film.
Ward and Bressack co-wrote both scripts. Restoration is currently shooting, while Bethany is set to begin filming later this month.
