Dread Central Presents starts 2019 under the new moniker, Dread, and will release its first in-house production, The Golem, as a Dread Original this February 5th.
Following the release of The Golem, Dread will begin pre-production in Los Angeles on its second Dread Original, Lucky, which will be directed by Natasha Kermani (Imitation Girl) from a script by Brea Grant (The Arrangement, "Heroes") who will also star. Patrick Ewald and Robert V. Galluzzo will produce.
In the feminist horror story of Lucky, a suburban mother, May, is stalked night after night by a threatening but elusive figure. But with few clues as evidence and no witnesses, she finds her story and her sanity questioned by the authorities. As each attack intensifies, and with no one to turn to for help, May finds herself alone and locked in an increasingly vicious battle with someone or something that may be unstoppable.
On deck for 2019, the label will also unveil Stewart Sparke’s Book of Monsters on March 19th, Black Site from British filmmaker, Tom Paton, on April 9th, and the military zombie epic REDCON-1, directed by Chee Keong Cheung and from the Executive Producer and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator, Kevin Eastman, in May, with several more acquisition announcement on the horizon.
