Ted Geoghegan (director of the excellent Fulci-inspired indie hit We Are Still Here) has announced his next feature film project will be a satirical look at the top one percent that imagines them as being literally evil.
Geoghegan’s new film, entitled Satanic Panic “centers on a minimum-wage delivery girl who is forced into a night-long battle with the rich and affluent leaders of a suburban community after discovering they’re part of a satanic cult.”
Satanic Panic will see Geoghegan re-teaming, not only with Dark Sky, but also with We Are Still Here producers Travis Stevens and Greg Newman. The screenplay will be penned by Grady Hendrix, the author of Horrorstör.
Geoghegan summed up his ambitions with the new film as being: “Equal parts supernatural horror and survival thriller, the film hinges on smart, funny dialogue and a clever, surprisingly badass female hero. A snarky, splattery takedown of the 1%, it places a trod-upon heroine up against the literally soulless societal upper crust. The banter and blood come fast and furious, and we’re hoping to leave very little time to breathe between gasps and gags.”
According to the press release, casting will begin soon. Stay tuned to the site for more on this title and the latest horror news as it is announced.
