It seems that not everyone has been annoyed with the snowstorms that have hit the Northeast. According to Deadline, production has begun in Western New York for the supernatural feature film We Are Still Here from MPI/Dark Sky Films and Snowfort Pictures. By the looks of this location shot, snow couldn’t have come at a better time. For aesthetic purposes, anyway.
The plot of the movie is to be set in the 1970s:
We Are Still Here follows Paul (Andrew Sensenig) and Anne (Barbara Crampton) who move to the quiet New England countryside to try to start a new life after their teenage son is killed in a car crash. But the grieving couple becomes the prey of a family of vengeful spirits that reside in their new home, and before long they discover that the seemingly peaceful town they’ve moved into is hiding a dark, terrifying dark secret.
We Are Still Here will be the directorial debut of Ted Geoghegan, who has been a part of some of the shorts we have covered from our friends at Sideshow Pictures such as Night of the Pumpkin and The House that Cried Blood. Geoghegan has also acted as producer for such films as Sweatshop and will be an associate producer for the upcoming ABCs of Death 2.
The cast of the film will surely gather up fans of both old school and new school horror with such names as Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, Chopping Mall, From Beyond), Larry Fessenden (I Sell the Dead, You’re Next), and Lisa Marie (Ed Wood, Mars Attacks, the upcoming Dominion).
MPI will begin the process of bringing We Are Still Here to the attention of prospective buyers, but for now, we can at least see the house that the film will take place.
