Principal Photography Was Nearly Shut Down By LAPD Interference But Survives To Come To Theaters And Home Video Soon!
Los Angeles, CA – March 18, 2014 – Writer and Director of the recently wrapped suspense/thriller ADAM K. and the upcoming 80's horror throwback AXEMAN (formerly Axeman At Cutter's Creek), Joston "El Rey" Theney announced today that the fact ADAM K. will be making it's way to theaters and home video at all is a miracle following a law enforcement incident that threatened to shut down production.
“It was wild,” Theney explained. "We were filming a riveting sequence with two terrific actresses, Sarah Nicklin and Kristin Wall Wheatley, when the Los Angeles Police Department responded to their cries for help." The writer/director reflects back on the harrowing experience, "Anytime a team of police responds with weapons drawn and all my actors are covered in the sticky red stuff, you have a recipe for disaster. We'd even warned the neighbors of the production and taken precaution but no one knew Sarah's lungs carried so much power!
Neighbors from a different apartment building across the street were calling for cops!" There is a moment of levity when he can take a breather from the excitement that was. "But after a little explaining and a whole lot of poker-facing, I was able to convince the cops that all was well and that we were just doing a horror flick. Nice to know that they truly are there when you need them. Great response times!"
"But we did get the film done - in the can," the AXEMAN writer/director exclaimed. "Even got some nifty BTS of cops and such. It's easy to laugh now but certainly not then." When pressed for release info, Theney responded, "Early Fall we'll have the Los Angeles premiere then a Bay Area showing. Some festivals have reached out to us but we're only going to do about two or three those. It's a great film, with an amazing cast. You never know how rich you are until you have more than you need or deserve, and this wonderful team of actors and crew were more than I could've asked for and certainly better than I deserved. Love them all and can't wait to see them on ADAM 2, which we start filming later this year."
ADAM K. is a gory take on the tale of nature versus nurture that proves - evil wears a smile! Mild-mannered and seemingly good-natured auto insurance claims adjusters Adam Kraul sets out daily to make friends, however ends up with mutilated victims when his invitations for friendships are rejected. The film stars Brinke Stevens, Arielle Brachfeld, Kristin Wall Wheatley, Sarah Nicklin, Jessica Cameron, Graham Denman and Dylan Hobbs. Written, Directed and Produced by Joston "El Rey" Theney.
