Jason Coffman Makes His Directorial Debut With The Horror-Comedy ‘Housesitters’

The trailer has arrived for Chicago-based filmmaker Jason Coffman’s feature film debut Housesitters, via Tomorrow Romance.

Inspire by films like Ghoulies, the female-driven horror-comedy follows the misadventures of Angie (Annie Watkins, “Jan” in the original New York and Chicago runs of hit stage production The Brady Bunch) and Izzy (Jamie Jirak, formerly of Chicago’s pH Comedy Theater) as they take on a plum housesitting gig that kind of spirals into supernatural horror. Housesitters has been submitted to a number of 2018 festivals in advance of a VOD release later this year.

 

 

Peter Ash, Jay J. Bidwell, Bethanie Louise, Mariah Michael, James Timothy Peters, and Ben Schlotfelt co-star in the film that features a creature puppet designed and built by Ohio-based independent filmmaker Dustin Wayde Mills (The Puppet Monster Massacre). Behind the camera, Jolene Vega served as cinematographer with Jef Burnham as assistant director and Tatiana von Recklinghausen as lead makeup/effects artist.
The soundtrack includes a score by Chicago-based Joshua Burke (who records under the name boardinghouse), with songs by Black Candles, Desire (courtesy of Italians Do It Better), Inner Vegas (courtesy of Good Glass), and Night Witch.
As soon as a release date is announced we will let you know. In the meantime check out the brand new trailer for Housesitters.
