The Maine-made horror film, The Wrong House, made by first time director Shawn French, will be distributed nationally this Tuesday June 7.
Inspired by a burglary that happened to French, and his wife, producer and actress, Sue Stevens, The Wrong House is a horror film about a group of kids who rob an isolated home and pay for their mistake. French sees his motivation as a way for him and his wife to cope with the frustration surrounding the break-in. French has said, “For Sue and I, this was a way to get over the break-in and make something positive out of it.” To blur the lines and make the story realistic, French and Stevens even played the killers themselves and filmed it in their own home.
Receiving several national horror awards at film festival screenings across the country, The Wrong House, received a DVD distribution deal with Elite Entertainment and Slingshot. Arriving this Tuesday, the DVD will include behind-the-scenes footage and commentary from French, Stevens and FX artist Eric Anderson of The Shoggoth Assembly.
