Horror icon Dee Wallace and Richie Ramone (yes, the former drummer for The Ramones) have signed onto the cast for an upcoming horror film in the works from some well-known Kentucky filmmakers.

Kentucky Horror

While Kentucky and horror films may not be synonymous for some, those in the know recognize that they go axe hand in hand. Known for Killbillies, The Wicked One, Angel, Wicked Ones, They See You, and more, award-winning Kentucky filmmaker, Tory Jones is bringing a brand-new experience in terror by reimagining Colin Miller, the notorious serial killer he developed nearly a decade ago.

Executive Producer, P.J. Starks says the cast lineup is an excellent reminder that you never know where your dreams will take you.

Tory is stacking this project with a unbelievably solid cast, not just with name actors but also with the local and regional talent involved. I'm very excited to be part of this project. Not only am I a huge fan of the slasher sub-genre, with my own slasher currently in post-production, but to be involved with a film that has Dee Wallace is an awesome reminder you never know what's going to happen if you follow your dreams. Collaborating on <i>The Boy from Below</i> with Tory is going to be a fun time and I'm looking forward to visiting the set once production begins next year. - P.J. Starks, Executive Producer

More About The Boy from Below

The Boy from Below is a reimagining of Jones's first introduction of serial killer, Colin Miller and The Wicked One. This new era of horror finds a video store employee named Quinn reunited with a former love before becoming the center of a masked serial killer's attention.

Local Video Store Employee and Horror Nerd Quinn Curtis’s Halloween Holiday is thrust into chaos when her friends reunite her with an old flame. The Night only worsens when a Killer in a Scarecrow mask, obsessed with Horror Movies himself, targets Quinn and her friends for his own twisted game of Trick or Treat. As the Body Count rises, his motivations and ties to the town’s past become clear.


There is no doubt that we are all on the edge of our seats as we await the release of The Boy from Below. If you would like to contribute to bringing the project to fruition, you can make a contribution to the IndieGoGo here.
