Having had to shut down due to the pandemic, the highly-anticipated horror-western Homestead has announced that production will resume in August. In the meantime, we’ve got the first look to share with you.
Starring horror icon Jamie Bernadette (I Spit On Your Grave: Déjà vu, The 6th Friend), is set in 1800s Oklahoma. Beth (Jamie Bernadette) flees from an abusive marriage with her twin children—Irene (Betsy Sligh), a loud-mouthed 12-year-old girl who has an uncanny knack for shooting guns, and Brian (Cavan Tonascia), a shy and awkward boy who can never seem to do anything right. Beth soon meets Robert, a charming man with dreams of living off the land. They marry and together, build a small cabin far off in the Western frontier away from civilization. When a gang of outlaws, each with their own uniquely twisted and terrifying personality, finds the family on their little homestead and terrorizes them, Beth starts to question Robert’s identity and his obscure past. Trapped on their homestead, outgunned and outnumbered, the family’s survival comes to rest in the hands of twelve-year-old, hot-tempered, and hair-triggered Irene, who trusts few and shoots first.
Written and directed by Ehrland Hollingsworth, who also produces with Amna Mehmood, both of Oak Street Productions LLC., the film also stars Betsy Sligh (Life-Size 2), Greg Kriek (“Black Mirror”; Inside Man: Most Wanted; Rogue), Mike Ferguson (Silencer; Beyond the Law), Mike Markoff (Stolen Season), Scot Scurlock (Pain Killer), Mark Madeo, and Cavan Tonascia.
