“Jesse Baget’s RUTHLESS PICTURES has started production on All Hallows’ Eve, Damien Leone’s debut feature. All Hallows’ Eve features Leone’s menacing signature villain, Art the Clown, who populates his chilling short films Terrifier and The 9th Circle.
In true classic slasher fashion, in the vein of Halloween and When A Stranger Calls, Leone unleashes his twisted creation, Art the Clown, upon an unsuspecting babysitter. While watching two children on Halloween night, the babysitter finds an old VHS tape in the kids’ trick or treat bag. The tape features three tales of terror, all linked together by a murderous clown. As the night goes on, strange things begin to occur in the house. It isn’t long before the babysitter learns the horrifying truth… the maniacal clown is slowly working his way into her reality.
Writer/director Damien Leone, whom Dread Central calls “a horror director to keep your eyes on,” contends that this will not be your ordinary horror film, “As a huge fan of the genre, it’s very important to me to deliver a film that will haunt fans long after they see it. With All Hallows’ Eve, we’re trying to capture the spirit of the great horror films of the 70s and 80s while pushing the envelope even further.”
Of first-time feature director Leone, producer Jesse Baget says, “When I first saw Damien’s work, I knew I was in front of an amazing talent. What made me want to work with Damien was his twisted horror vision and his ability to bring it to life with his incredible talent for both special effects and storytelling. Damien’s creatures are what nightmares are made of.” Baget adds, “ This kind of fresh new talent is exactly what the horror world needs.“
The film stars Catherine A. Callahan (“Third Rock,” “Are We There Yet?”), Marie Maser (Terrifier), and Katie Maguire.
Baget founded Ruthless Pictures in 2012 to bring to life tightly written and executed horror and thriller features. Ruthless Pictures is currently in production on two other films, Black Water Vampire starring Bill Oberst, Jr., and Mischief Night starring Ally Walker, Charlie O’Connell, Daniel Hugh Kelly, and Erica Leehrsen.”
