Casting Announcement for Road Trip!

Road Trip Cast Announcement!

As many of you know, about a year ago we finished the critically acclaimed microbudget horror anthology SHIVERS DOWN YOUR SPINE. Now, we’re pleased to announce that filming of the sequel, CHILLS DOWN YOUR SPINE is well under way. A couple months back we shot BLOOD MODEL and now we’re diving into the wraparound device, titled ROAD TRIP and will bring Jeff, Sabiah, and a cast of new and returning characters from SHIVERS back to the big screen. Filming begins January 13th, 2017.

You can follow along with the production on the Prairie Lights Productions Tumblr page or the Dead Lantern Pictures tumblr page. Also, like us on facebook and subscribe to our Youtube channel.

ROAD TRIP picks up 3 days after the events of SHIVERS DOWN YOUR SPINE. Jeff finds a brand new genie lamp. Much to his chagrin, rather than Sabiah, he finds her ditzy blonde twin sister Mahktoonah! Together, they go on an epic road trip where Jeff will have to find his inner hero as they encounter ancient gods and monsters on their way to save Sabiah, who has been found by a sadistic torturer!

Below are the actors cast. Can’t wait to work with all of these great people again!
