The newly resurrected Fangoria has tapped Chelsea Stardust to direct their second film outing, SATANIC PANIC. The horror-comedy is set to begin production this October in Texas.
According to Deadline, the script is written by Grady Hendrix and the story tells about a pizza delivery girl at the end of her financial rope who has to fight for her life — and her tips — when her last order of the night turns out to be high society Satanists in need of a virgin sacrifice.
Cinestate’s Dallas Sonnier (Bone Tomahawk) & Amanda Presmyk (Dragged Across Concrete) will produce for Fangoria with Aperture Entertainment’s Adam Goldworm (Masters Of Horror). Fangoria’s Phil Nobile Jr. and Adam Donaghey will be exec producers. Hendrix wrote the story with Ted Geoghegan. Tate Steinsiek is on board to handle the special effects.
Stardust worked for Blumhouse for several years and then directed several short horror films for Crypt TV.
“Our movie screams for a female director’s vision, and we had a blast getting to know several truly talented candidates,” Sonnier said. “With Chelsea at the helm, I feel strongly that we have a future horror comedy classic on our hands that will be celebrated by Fangoria audiences who crave wickedly entertaining, boundary-pushing movies.”
Fangoria is the branded horror magazine being resurrected by the Texas-based Cinestate. First pic, Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, is released August 17 by RLJE Films.
