Indiegogo campaign: igg.me/at/one-drop
One Drop, the terrifying new horror film from director Tricia Lee and A Film Monkey Production, began yesterday in Toronto. Lee, one of the very few successful female directors in the genre, first made a splash on the scene with her first featureClean Break and her second feature Silent Retreat. Since their Best Canadian Feature win at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival, long-time team Tricia Lee and writer Corey Brown have been working on the One Drop script for their new horror creature feature and are excited to see their vision become a reality. Filming runs from April 20 to May 14, 2015. Release is slated for late 2016.
The team has also launched an Indiegogo campaign to start sharing exclusive project updates from set with fans, while also fundraising to complete post-production for the film.
One Drop tells the story of a single mother who wakes up in the basement of a medical facility only to discover that everyone around her is dead and she is somehow nine months pregnant. As she tries to escape, she realizes that something not-quite-human is prowling the hallways, and the only means of survival may be growing inside of her.
In order to bring her chilling vision to life, Tricia Lee and casting director Kristen Henderson has assembled a fantastic cast, and is thrilled to introduce them:
· Lara Gilchrist (Battlestar Galactica, Defying Gravity)
· Benjamin Arthur (Less Than Kind, Working the Engels)
· Torri Higginson (Stargate: Atlantis, The City)
· Mark Taylor (Flashpoint, Instant Star)
· Julian Richings (Orphan Black, Septic Man)
These talented actors will join forces to battle a nightmare beyond the reaches of science. InOne Drop, science is pitted against religion in this suspenseful script that is visually, emotionally and intellectually stimulating.
Right now, the crew is hard at work building sets and SPFX guru Shaun Hunter is creating gruesome prosthetics to make the most frightening film possible. With the support of Producer Chris Luckhardt (Silent Retreat) and Executive Producers Brigitte Kingsley (The Dark Rising Franchise) and Michael Baker (Backcountry, Nostrum), this project was recently selected to attend the Frontieres Genre Co-Production Market in Brussels, Belgium that coincides with the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival. With an overwhelmingly positive response, the only question remaining is, will audiences be brave enough to watch?
