We just received word from actress Tara Cardinal that wild-man director Uwe Boll has just finished production on "Basement", a short film that's part of the upcoming international horror anthology The Profane Exhibit. Cardinal stars opposite Clint Howard (pictured above) and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2's Caroline Williams. Details, and another photo from the film, after the jump.
Here's the official announcement that Tara Cardinal (pictured in the above still from "Basement") just sent us: "Harbinger International Films has great news concerning our film The Profane Exhibit, an anthology of 13 international short films of extreme horror, produced by David Bond and Manda Manuel."
"Director Uwe Boll has completed his contribution to the film, the creepy and subversive short "Basement", starring Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Tara Cardinal and horror icon Clint Howard. David L Tamarin, General Counselor of Harbinger, attended the shoot and expressed his concern that the material might be too strong for mass consumption. 'The film is about evil that is absolutely real. There are no zombies, and the only monster is of the human variety. The film takes you to a very dark place. Viewers need to prepare themselves for this one.'
"Uwe Boll's film is about the corruption of a family in a world where things are not always what they appear to be. A world where monsters parade as family men and home is another word for hell. In an ideal suburban home which could best be described as boring and ordinary a horrible secret exists deep in the basement. Clint Howard and Caroline Williams play a married couple with an ordinary life- except for the fact that they keep their starving and abused daughter in a locked basement room that she has not left in years. In this perverse nightmare scenario that is unfortunately based on fact, all the young daughter (Tara Cardinal) wants to do is go outside and into the sun. Instead she must endure daily cruelties. This is a tale of sexual depravity and psychological torture, and a subversive look at the depraved realities of suburban life. Uwe Boll, director of films such as Stoic, Rampage, Seed, Postal, Attack on Darfur, and more, has once again turned his eye on the nature of evil and corruption.
"Other directors for the film include Richard Stanley, Marian Dora, Yoshihiro Nishimura, Sergio Stivaletti, Ryan Nicholson, Michael Todd Schneider, and Andrey Iskanov. Many more to still be announced.
