Emmy-nominated writer/director and FEARnet’s own School of Fear blogger Drew Daywalt is writing and directing a new feature-length film, The Passengers. Daywalt is behind awesome shorts like Bedfellows, Polydeus, Jack and The Laundromat.
The Passengers tells the story of a young trucker and his wife who are terrorized by the tortured spirits attached to a load of antiques that the couple has been commissioned to haul cross country. Edin Gali (Mad Men, Hemingway and Gellhorn) and Courtney Halverson (Death Valley, Red Clover) star in the upcoming film.
"We've been waiting for this opportunity for a couple years now. And since we're being financed through private investors, my team and I have the creative control to tell an intelligent, terrifying story. We're finally getting to make the film we want to make, in the way we want to make it. The plan is simple; tell a good story that scares the hell out of everyone," Daywalt said.
