Horror Equity Fund fast-track Eric Red horror ‘White Knuckle’

by Phil Wheat

The Horror Equity Fund have announced the latest horror-related project they have fast-tracked: White Knuckle, from one of my favourite writer/directors Eric Red, who is also the author of the action-packed novel of the same name. White Knuckle tells a gripping story of female empowerment about a woman who survives an attack by a serial killer, and then takes it upon herself to stop him from hurting anyone else.

Perhaps best known as the creator of The Hitcher and Near Dark, and the writer/director of Cohen and Tate, Body Parts and Bad Moon, Red’s previous directorial effort, 2015’s Night of the Wild, has recently been released on iTunes. Says Red:

I’m very excited to be joining forces with Marlon Schulman, Brian Herskowitz and Tony Timpone at Horror Equity Fund for my new film, White Knuckle. It’s a great team to be working with making a terrifying road thriller in the tradition of The Hitcher.

Adds Tony Timpone, Executive Vice President of the Horror Equity Fund:

I am very happy that the first project that I brought into Horror Equity Fund to be fast-tracked is Eric Red’s super-kinetic White Knuckle. Eric’s previous work in the genre, The Hitcher, Near Dark and Body Parts, were unique and terrifying. White Knuckle will keep people off the highways like Jaws kept ’em out of the water and HEF supporters can be part of the ride!
