Prolific short horror filmmaker Drew Daywalt has lined up his next feature, the Larry Fessenden-produced supernatural THE HURTING MAN. 

Set to lens this fall, THE HURTING MAN follows the story of a police officer who tragically finds his family murdered after a failed 911 call and now must work to save their souls from a demonic boogieman haunting his childhood home.

“I wrote this script and kept it close to my chest, because this one was written from my own worst terrors, both as a
parent of small children, and also tapping into my own childhood fears of a
hideously costumed boogieman,” says Daywalt. “This one’s going to scare the hell out of
everyone. I promise. I can say that because it really scares me, and I’m
letting my fear guide me on this one.”

LAST WINTER director Fessenden says, “There’s a certain kind of genuinely
terrifying old-school-campfire scare that Daywalt gets right in his Fear
Factory gems and I can’t wait to see him nail those chills in a long form
