We first heard about Mickey Liddell's newest horror film, The Occult, earlier this month. Today the full cast has been announced, and filming is underway on the LD Entertainment Production. Christian E. Christiansen (The Roommate) is directing the movie based on a script by Karl Mueller. The horror-thriller is being produced by Pete Shilaimon, Mickey Liddell and Jennifer Hilton Monroe, with Scott Holroyd, Michael Zelman and Paddy Cullen serving as exec producers.
Here is the full cast:
Alycia Debnam-Carey (Dream Life), Rufus Sewell (The Illusionist, The Tourist), Thomas McDonell (Prom), Adelaide Kane (Secrets of the Mountain), Leah Pipes (Sorority Row), Colm Meaney (Law Abiding Citizen, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter, The Exorcism of Emily Rose), Stacey Edwards (In the Company of Men) and Ric Reitz (Remember the Titans).
Something very strange happened in the small village of New Bethlehem, a devout community kept under the tight reins of the town's vigilant Elders. Six girls born on the same day to different mothers. Perhaps a coincidence or as most believe a chilling omen of something yet to come. Now, on the eve of their 18th birthday, the young women are mysteriously disappearing one by one and feared dead. Terror has overtaken this quiet community. Could this be the work of a serial killer, one of the village elders or a horrific prophecy come true, born of the supernatural, The Occult?
This sounds like an interesting movie that will surely do well with horror fans. Liddell has a solid track record for producing genre flicks, so this should be no different. The cast is pretty solid. Anne Heche had initially been announced as in talks for a role, but it looks like she did not finalize a deal.
Do you think that Liddell has another hit on his hands?
