We have word on a new psychological horror film, MALEDICTION, that has begun production in Canada. The film is from actor, writer, producer Ali Chappell, who makes her directorial debut with the film. Keep reading for more details on the film.

From The Press Release

October 4th, 2021 – Production has begun on actor/producer Ali Chappell’s feature directorial debut MALEDICTION, a psychological, supernatural horror film set against the haunted landscape of the stark Canadian wilderness. Chappell (best known for her roles in the Full Moon Features horror films NECROPOLIS: LEGION and IT KNOWS YOU’RE ALONE) wrote the screenplay and will play the central role of Codi, a young woman who travels back to her family home to confront her demons…figurative and otherwise. As Codi isolates herself and falls deeper into psychosis, she’s watched by something in the woods, a monstrous presence that has plagued her all her life and that threatens to consume her body and soul.

The film will be shot entirely in Northern Ontario with a cast that also includes Bee Dawley (IT KNOWS YOU’RE ALONE) and Ariel Edwards, who recently starred in Chappell’s acclaimed and award winning short film VERIFIED, currently playing film festivals around the world. Chris Cooper (HANNIBAL, ORPHAN BLACK) is handling special makeup effects.

“MALEDICTION is a very personal project for me,” says Chappell, who will next be seen this November in GIRL WITH A STRAIGHT RAZOR from Darkside Releasing.

“This is, in many respects, a story about me, albeit an elaborate, decidedly genre-based blurring of my truth. After writing the script, I always intended to play Codi. But it also made sense that no one else could really direct this film but me. I’m going very dark with this picture and I hope the audience will come with me into the ether.”

MALEDICTION will be completed in December 2021, with festival play planned for 2022.

I am a devoted husband and father. I have been a voracious horror fan since the early age of 5 and metal fan since I was 14. I watch all horror films but my great loves are classic horror films: Universal Monsters, Werewolves, Hammer Horror and an all-around affinity for things that go bump in the night! I'm also a huge fan of extreme metal music.
