First images from creature feature ‘The Shed’

by Phil Wheat

Starring Timothy Bottoms (The Last Picture Show), Frank Whaley (Pulp Fiction), Siobhan Fallon (Men in Black), Jay Jay Warren (Amazon Prime’s Bosch), Cody Kostro (CBS’ Elementary), and newcomer Sofia Happonen, The Shed tells the story of Stan, an orphaned teenager stuck living with his abusive grandfather and tasked with routinely protecting his best friend from high school bullies. When Stan discovers a murderous creature has taken refuge inside the toolshed in his back yard, he tries to secretly battle the demon alone until his bullied friend discovers the creature and has a far more sinister plan in mind.

The Shed is produced by Peter Block, godfather of Lionsgate’s blockbuster SAW franchise, and producer of House At The End Of The Street); Cory Neal, producer, who produced the ski-lift thriller Frozen with Block, as well as the Hatchet series; and Wing & A Prayer’s Josh Crook (The All Nighter).

The film comes from writer/director Frank Sabatella, who previously wrote and directed the 2011 Lionsgate release Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet, as well as a number of holiday-themed Halloween shorts via his New York-based production shingle, Sideshow Pictures. Said Sabatella upon the completion of filming:

I’m really excited about our dynamic cast of veteran actors and incredibly talented fresh faces that bring an interesting dimension of realism to the film. It is a unique horror piece with great scares and awesome moments that I think audiences will really respond to. I can’t wait to get it in front of them.

Added Block:

Frank (Sabatella) and I wanted to take a cool horror set-up and use it to comment on current anti-bullying discussions, as well as to use a horror creature as a metaphor for the extreme outcomes that occur when the bullied are pushed too far.
