The film is currently rolling on Los Angeles locations, and appears to be based on one of history’s most notorious murderers.
Actor Devanny Pinn, who has over 70 credits in and out of the genre, is making her feature directorial debut on BLACK MASS, scripted by Eric Pereira and her frequent collaborator Brandon Slagle. Sarah Nicklin (pictured), from THE RETALIATORS, NUN OF THAT and many others, has joined the cast that includes Jennifer Wenger, Lew Temple (THE DEVIL’S REJECTS), Jeremy London, Lisa Wilcox (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4 and 5), Andrew Sykes, Kathleen Kinmont (HALLOWEEN 4), Susan Lanier (THE HILLS HAVE EYES), Michelle Romano (SLEEPAWAY SLASHER), Eileen Dietz (THE EXORCIST) and Pinn herself. According to the PR, the film “is inspired by real events in Florida during the winter of 1978 when college girls were being stalked by a serial killer.” Presumably this is inspired by Ted Bundy’s attack on sorority sisters at Florida State University, where one of the surviving victims recalled seeing “a black mass. I couldn’t even see that it was a person.”
