From Dire Wit Films, the creators of 7th Day (2013), and starring Vito Trigo (Return to Nuke ‘Em High, Science Team), Pig Pen is the story of a thirteen year old runaway, Zack, played by Lucas Koch (Science Team, 7th Day, Witch’s Brew), who is tormented by his mother’s abusive boyfriend, Wayne (played by Trigo). Wayne eventually forces Zack to live in the streets, until a murder has the two face to face in a tale of bloodshed and revenge.
The original production team returns off of Dire Wit Film’s recent success with their serial killer film 7th Day, with Jason Koch (7th Day, M is for Munging) directing again and writer Mark Leake (7th Day, Mutantis) returning to script a story by Koch and Clint Kelly (M is for Munging). Steve Rubac (7th Day, Witch’s Brew) returns as director of photography to capture the action and violence. For special effects, Kaleigh Brown, fresh from working on Astron 6 and The Editor returns with Aftermath FX (Science Team, 7th Day, V/H/S 2, Return to Nuke ‘Em High) to deliver the gore. As for the music, Paul Joyce (7th Day, The Editor, Father’s Day) is set to bring his signature score to the film.
These fine folks are beginning shooting in October, and are fundraising now! They’re running an Indiegogo campaign for Pig Pen (with some pretty nice swag for contributor perks) that will close on September 24, 2014 (11:59pm PT). Reach out and contribute, if you can; a buck or a thousand, every little bit helps!
