When you deliver pizzas, you could encounter anyone on the other side of the front door, including murderous satanic cult members. Such is the case for a pizza delivery woman in Fangoria's new movie Satanic Panic, which now has a director.
Deadline reports that Chelsea Stardust is set to direct Satanic Panic, a new horror comedy coming from Cinestate's Fangoria. Stardust, who has worked on a long list of Blumhouse projects and recently directed her first feature-length project (All That We Destroy), will direct from a screenplay by acclaimed author Grady Hendrix (Horrorstör, Paperbacks from Hell), who came up with the film's story idea with filmmaker Ted Geoghegan (Mohawk, We Are Still Here).
Renowned makeup artist Tate Steinsiek, who is directing the Castle Freak reboot for Cinestate, will take on the film's special effects, with Cinestate’s Dallas Sonnier and Amanda Presmyk on board to produce along with Adam Goldworm from Aperture Entertainment. Executive producing the movie are Fangoria Editor-in-Chief Phil Nobile Jr. and Adam Donaghey.
Here's what Sonnier had to say about Stardust coming aboard to direct Satanic Panic: (via Deadline):
“Our movie screams for a female director’s vision, and we had a blast getting to know several truly talented candidates. With Chelsea at the helm, I feel strongly that we have a future horror comedy classic on our hands that will be celebrated by Fangoria audiences who crave wickedly entertaining, boundary-pushing movies.”
No casting announcements have been made yet, but filming is expected to begin in Texas this October. We'll keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed.
