The Flesh Keeper available on DVD
Stacy Davidson of Odyssee Pictures serves as cinematographer for director Gerald Nott’s savage blood bath The Flesh Keeper.
“Family is Everything” is the motto of the Joad brothers, a creed held so dear that the siblings will do anything to “take care of their own.” Just how far the Joads will go is something that a group of friends find out when their car unfortunately breaks down in the middle of a Texas road trip.
Hunted down and held hostage, a group of terrified travelers must endure a horrific night of torture and murder as they are forced to play a sadistic game that pits the friends against each other to satisfy the Joad family’s psychotic sense of southern hospitality.
Director Gerald Nott rejoins the cast of The Quick and the Undead for this tale of Texas terror.
The Flesh Keeper stars: Clint Glenn (The Quick and the Undead), Erin McCarthy (The Quick and the Undead), Parrish Randall (Slaughter House), Arianne Martin (Red Victoria), Dion Day (The Quick and the Undead), Morgan McCarthy (Domain of the Damned, Closet Space), Peyton Wetzel (Sweatshop, Closet Space), Jimmy Hazard (The Quick and the Undead), Toar Campbell (The Quick and the Undead).
Stacy Davidson was featured in the May, 2008 issue of Fangoria Magazine! The enormous six-page spread also featured “southern-fried” horror filmmakers Mel House, Marcus Koch, Joe Davison and Gerald Nott. The feature covers five movies all involving Stacy Davidson, inlcuding Domain of the Damned (written and directed), Sweatshop (co-written and directed), Closet Space and 100 Tears (visual effects), and includes a sidebar story on The Fleshkeeper (cinematographer).
While most well adjusted people have been stuffing themselves with turkey and putting up their Christmas trees, the Odyssee Pictures crew has been hard at work shooting a new retro slasher (or “smasher”) movie to utterly delight horror fanatics around the world. SWEATSHOP is based on a Ted Geoghegan (Nikos, Barricade, Fearmakers) concept. Stacy Davidson (Domain of the Damned) co-wrote and directed, and served as cinematographer. Laura Bryant is the producer, with Mel House (Witchcraft 13, Closet Space) co-producing.
The film stars Domain of the Damned alumni Ashley Kay, Naika Malveaux, Krystal “Vampirita” Freeman, and Brent D. Himes who also appeared in Mr. Hell. Joining them are Melanie Donihoo (Closet Space), Peyton Wetzel (Closet Space, The Flesh Keeper), Danielle Jones (Closet Space), Julin (Spirit Camp), and newcomer Vincent Guerrara.
Of course, you can’t make a horror omelet without breaking some skulls, so filling the shoes of the maniacal, bloodthirsty murderer known only as “The Beast” is Jeremy Sumrall, who many horror convention goers may know as proprietor of the horror merchandise boutique Necrobilia.
Texas studios Odyssee Pictures and Upstart Filmworks (Closet Space) have joined forces with Nott Entertainment (The Quick and the Undead) to film Gerald Nott’s next vision of pure terror in Texas. Although the title is still under wraps, we can tell you that it will feature Gerald Nott as writer/director, Odyssee’s Stacy Davidson as cinematographer, and Upstart’s Mel House as production manager & 2nd unit director. The movie will be shot in HD, and filming is set to begin in September.
According to Davidson: “This is one f&@%ed up flick. After I read the script, I had to take a shower. It’s sick, it’s demented, I think Gerald should be locked up for writing it, and I can’t wait to help him put it on screen.”
Stay tuned for details!
