The Horror Collective’s revenge horror-comedy Mean Spirited is now on Demand and Digital and sees a wannabe influencer set out to bury the hatchet with his celebrity friend, only to find out that he is not quite himself anymore…


Written and directed by Jeff Ryan and co-written by Joe Adams (The AV Club), Mean Spirited has a fantastic cast, including Michelle Veintimilla (“Gotham,” ABC’s “Big Sky”), Neville Archambault (13 Cameras, The BlockIsland Sound), Will Madden (Beast Beast), Daniel Rashid (Beast Beast), Will Martin (Youthmin), Maria DeCotis (“Europa”), and Charlie Pollock (“The Good Wife”).


Mean Spirited is a First-Names Films production produced by Joe Adams and Owen Williams, executive produced by Shaked Berenson (Slaxx, Tales of Halloween, Turbo Kid), and Owen Williams. It was co-produced by Jacob Andres Padilla. Gerry Pass was co-executive, and Ryan Adams, Julia Hirsch, Charlotte Williams, and Charlie Phoenix were associate-produced. It was lensed by cinematographer Kenneth Wales (The Beta Test), with production design by Kelsey Hannah Walsh (Dreamcatcher).


Director Jeff Ryan told Collider, “We are excited to entertain and scare our audience, and we hope they’ll smash that like button, leave a comment below and subscribe. Remember, someone’s soul is on the line…”


Co-writer and producer Joe Adams added: “Falling out with friends is an experience most people know all too well. Mean Spirited shines a light on such heartache with a fun, fresh angle on the cabin-in-the-woods genre. In the age of social media, our movie explores the skewed lines between what’s real and what’s a show for the camera.”
