Director Joe Dante of Gremlins fame is now working on a horror movie called Camp Cold Brook. It’s about the crew of a “reality” TV show that goes on fake ghost hunts for ratings. This movie belonging to the genre that it does, the crew is about to encounter some REAL spooks — at Camp Cold Brook, the location of a deadly thirty-child drowning 20 years ago. Now the kids are coming back!
The film’s distributor, October Coast, revealed today who would star in the movie. The headliners will be Danielle Harris (Halloween) and Chad Michael Murray, of TV’s One Tree Hill and the ONE PERSON who wouldn’t reprise his role in Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life. We still don’t know what that was about. Maybe he was filming this instead?
Rounding out the cast are Courtney Gains (The Burbs, Children of the Corn), Michael Eric Reid (TV’s Victorious),Candice De Visser (The Funhouse Massacre), Mary Kathryn Bryant (Hellraiser : Judgement), Loren Lodesma (A.S.K), and Jason Van Eman (1 Mile to You).
Camp Cold Brook currently has no specified release date. Below lies October Coast’s press release for the movie.
Chad Michael Murray (House of Wax, TV’s Sun Records) and Danielle Harris (Halloween, Hatchet III) will headline Andy Palmer’s Camp Cold Brook.
Produced by Warner Davis of Petri Entertainment, Gremlins alum Joe Dante and Mark Alan of Renfield Productions, and Jason Van Eman and Ross Marroso of Weathervane Productions, pic tells of a reality TV crew that get more than they bargained for when they decide to film the next episode in the legendary Camp Cold Brook.
Reality TV producer and host, JACK WILSON (Chad Michael Murray), finds himself in a tough spot. His finances have crumbled and his show, “Haunt Squad”, is about to be cancelled. In a last ditch effort to spark ratings to land a final season, he and his producers Angela (Danielle Harris) and Emma as well as their trusted cameraman Kevin choose the legend of Camp Cold Brook to save their show. The camp was host to a horrific incident, where the young campers were drowned in a nearby creek 20 years ago. Their arrival begins like any other episode. Cameras are placed, lights spark to life, but this is not going to be a regular episode of chasing errant noises and measuring for EVP. The terror here was real and the 30 are about to rise.
Courtney Gains (The Burbs, Children of the Corn), Michael Eric Reid (TV’s Victorious),Candice De Visser (The Funhouse Massacre), Mary Kathryn Bryant (Hellraiser : Judgement), Loren Lodesma (A.S.K), and Jason Van Eman (1 Mile to You) help make up the ensemble.
