Scream Factory to produce first original film, “FENDER BENDER” with “NIGHT FLIER” directorMovies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
For the last few years, Scream Factory has proven themselves to be a force to be reckoned with in the specialty distribution market. The label, which puts out many of fright fan’s favorite cult classics and underrated horror films on Blu-ray, recently made the jump into the original content pool with Astron-6’s THE EDITOR, Dr. God’s BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS, James Roday’s GRAVY and Takashi Miike’s OVER YOUR DEAD BODY. Now, Scream Factory makes an even bigger impression on the genre, as they’ve announced that they’re taking a step further and putting together their very first original feature film production.
The film, entitled FENDER BENDER, is written by Mark Pavia, best known for the 1997 Stephen King cult classic THE NIGHT FLIER, who will also be stepping behind the camera. Principal photography is slated to begin later this year in New Mexico, and producers on the project include Pavia, FEAR X’s Nadia Redler, EchoWolf Productions’ Carl W. Lucas & Joshua Bunting (The Blackout) of EchoWolf Productions to serve as film producers, with Shout! Factory’s Jordan Fields and Gus Krieger serving as co-producers.
With the film in pre-production, not much is known about FENDER BENDER, but FANGORIA will keep an eye out for more on Scream Factory’s inaugural original production. In the meantime, you can indulge in Scream Factory’s magnificent pre-Halloween titles, including DEMON KNIGHT, BORDELLO OF BLOOD, ARMY OF DARKNESS, THE LARRY FESSENDEN COLLECTION and more HERE.
