If you're curious as to what exactly 'Paymon' is, all you need know is it's the latest film project from filmmaker Anthony DiBlasi, which means it's one to look out for. DiBlasi served as producer on several Clive Barker projects such as 'Midnight Meat Train' and 'Book Of Blood,' then made his directorial debut with 'Dread,' one of the few great adaptations of Barker's works from his infamous Books Of Blood series. His 2nd feature 'Cassadaga' is due out later this year, as is 'Missionary,' but that hasn't stopped him from tackling his fourth full length feature 'Paymon,' a Charles Manson-inspired horror flick which is currently shooting.
In 'Paymon,' officer Jessica Loren has the last shift at a transitioning police station, assigned to wait for a hazmat crew who’s coming to pick up bio-hazard waste from the armory. But unbeknownst to Jessica, it’s more than just an old station. Cult leader John Michael Paymon has haunted the department ever since he and two of his followers committed suicide on the night they were captured. And now Jessica is about to find out how dangerous they can really be when she’s left all alone on this grave-yard shift.
Director Anthony DiBlasi is back in Florida to helm the latest project from Scott Poiley and Mary Poiley of Skyra Entertainment. This time around DiBlasi will be directing Juliana Harkavy ('Dolphin Tale'), Joshua Mickel ('Vampire Diaries') and J LaRose ('Insidious') from a script penned by DiBlasi and Scott Poiley. Below, FEARnet is presenting an introduction to one of the characters from the flick, Dorthea Perkins.
Dorthea Perkins, arrested for 1st degree murder. Perkins shot, stabbed, and killed two police officers and six women at a vacant estate deep in the heart of Sanford. Perkins is the daughter of a preacher and youngest of eight siblings. She was expelled from high school after stabbing the principle with a pencil. Her parents sent her to a reform school where she later escaped after poisoning the entire staff. She hitchhiked across the Florida panhandle where she met Paymon and became one of his loyal followers.
