Trash Arts has teamed up with HB Films once again, this time for the remake of Dustin Ferguson‘s Terror At Black Tree Forest.
The new film, based on Ferguson’s 2010 indie slasher, will be directed by Sam Mason Bell, who said “I am honored to have been asked by Dustin to remake his film. Originally, he asked me in 2018 and we were about to start production when the covid-19 pandemic hit but now we can see a way to filming safely and successfully, so it feels absolutely great being back in pre-production’.”
In the slasher, “Caroline and her friends usually meet up once a year for a camping trip escaping their everyday lives and feeling young again, but this time it is different. They still meet up, but someone is stalking and killing them off … one by one! Is it a secret from the past? Or an urban legend come to life? What terror awaits at Black Tree Forest? Will anyone survive the camping trip? Will we discover the killer? Whatever you do, don’t go down to the Black Tree Forest alone – or at all!”
The remake is planned to begin shooting this summer, mainly outdoors, compliant with covid-19 production guidelines, and will be completed by the end of this year.
To fund the production, an Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign has just been launched to raise funds for the production. The fixed funding target is currently £3,000 but they anticipate raising more. Any support though will be welcome by the filmmakers.
Here’s a look back at the original trailer.
