The film stars beloved character actor Clancy Brown, widely recognized as one of the most prolific and versatile performers in Hollywood, and best known for his roles in Highlander, The Shawshank Redemption, and Starship Troopers as well as playing the role of  Brother Justin Crowe on HBO’s fantastically twisted series “Carnivàle”, Kelvin Inman on ABC’s “Lost”, and as the voice of Mr. Krabs on “Sponge Bob Square Pants”.


The film also stars Caitlin Fisher (“Teen Wolf”), Jacob Elordi (Euphoria), Barak Hardley (Spell), Sarah Hey (Braid), and Christine Kilmer.
