Why do we seek horror in the most unsuspected places? In locales that by all means should be a safe haven, a part of the world free of fears and threats, even romantic? Is it just in the collective twisted mind of genre authors and filmmakers who are for their mindset incapable of romantic thought? Out of the way, seemingly normal places are infested with monsters and a roost for the malicious better left undisturbed. Or, better yet, easily invaded by evil for fatal naiveté of the natives. Real life seems to prove the point that many mortal dangers indeed often originate from the unsuspected. Most serial killers turn out to be just your regular guy or gal next door with a well hidden, or collectively ignored, yet severe mental condition. Many a secluded place has turned out to be the perfect setting for most unspeakable atrocities. Filmmaker Les Mahoney will be taking audiences to such a place where we felt safe since childhood… until watching Joseph Kesselring’s ‘Arsenic and Old Lace’.‘At Granny’s House’ is a forthcoming horror thriller, written and directed by Les Mahoney and starring Emmy Award winner Bill Oberst Jr. as Detective Boarstag on the trail of the titular grandmother, Rachel Alig, Glenda Morgan Brown and Les Mahoney.
Not much has been revealed about the plot of the film, which is scheduled to start filming in the second half of next month (June) in Colorado: A typical Midwest house. A sweet little old lady. When a caretaker moves in to help out, Granny’s House becomes a macabre place of death – and love.
‘At Granny’s House’is produced by Los Angeles, CA, based Vagabond Entertainment with Tammy Ridenour producing. Premiere and release dates for the film have not been officially announced at the time of this writing.
