Robert Angelo Masciantonia (Cold Hearts) has signed to helm the upcoming horror film The Beast Comes at Night, a coming-of-age story set in a small southern town with a serious werewolf problem.
Kylissa Katalinch, Michael McKeever, and Kyle Oifer star alongside Robert Bronzi, known for his uncanny resemblance to the iconic actor Charles Bronson.
The story centers on a young podcaster (McKeever) who has a penchant for investigating paranormal phenomena, serial killers, and conspiracy theories. He discovers his town is under attack by a flesh-eating beast that hunts during the full moon! Nobody believes him, except a popular cheerleader (Katalinich) and sideshow fortune teller (Bronzi) hiding his past as a Cold War-era monster hunter.
The Beast Comes at Midnight, set in the real-life carnival town of Gibsonton, Florida, a winter retreat for carnival workers and sideshow attractions, is set to begin filming this July in Tampa, Florida
Legendary horror film composer Dennis Tenney has also signed on for the film. Tenney is known for his contributions to Witchboard, Night of the Demons and Night of the Demons 3, Leprechaun 3 and 4, Witchcraft, Brain Dead, Tick Tock, Pinocchio’s Revenge, and The Prophecy.
Ed McKeever (1000 Acres of Hell), Todd Oifer, and Steve Gray will be producing.
We are setting out to make a monster movie with practical fx and a riveting story that appeals to both lifelong horror fans and new followers of the genre. In the vein of classics like The Lost Boys, Silver Bullet and Phantasm that star young actors thrust into extraordinary and fantastical situations. The team felt only Robert A. Masciantonio could deliver the goods.” Said executive producer Todd Oifer.
