Gritworks films, the production company owned by filmmakers James Cullen Bressack (pictured), who's recent production "Hate Crime" got banned in the UK, and Zack Ward (actor - "Resident Evil : Apocalypse", "Blood Lake", "Don't Blink") is in the middle of back-to-back shoots for two new micro budget horror films.
"The first, "Bethany" stars Stefanie Estes as Claire, a woman who moves back into her childhood home with her husband. The abusive, traumatic memories of her mother return to haunt her — as her husband becomes busier with work, she finds herself in a fog of memories — as a small figure tries to reach out to her.
Bressack is directing the film, which also stars Ward, Shannen Doherty (Blood Lake), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), Brodus Clay, Peter Jason, John Murray, Olivia Stiefel, Anna Harr and Ellen Gerstell.
The second film, "Restoration" centres on a young doctor who moves to a new town with her husband while she completes her residency. Things seem to be going well, as she and her husband, a contractor, renovate their home, and meet a fun couple next door. Things take a dark turn when they discover a diary buried within the walls of their house, and a terrifying spirit is awakened.
"Restoration" stars Emily O'Brien, Zack Ward, Adrian Gaeta and Sarah Ann Schultz. Ward also is directing the film.
