Take a first look at the new vampire thriller.

BENEATH US ALL, filmed this past April in Michigan and about to head out onto the festival circuit, was directed by Harley Wallen (AGRAMON’S GATE), who also has an acting role, and scripted by Bret Miller. Angelina Danielle Cama, Maria Olsen, THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS’ Sean Whalen and Yan Birch, Kaiti Wallen and Michael Alexander star. According to the official synopsis, the movie “follows Julie [Cama], a foster child heading for her 18th birthday. She finds an item buried in the woods with something unspeakable inside. Whalen plays Todd, Julie’s stepfather, who struggles with his gambling issues.”

Says Wallen, “It felt good and overdue to reconnect ‘Roach’ and ‘The Stairmaster’ for the first time since their iconic performances in Wes Craven’s PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS.” According to the director, several distributors are currently considering BENEATH US ALL; keep your eyes here for updates.
