Get ready for some nostalgic chills! Daisy is the throwback monster movie you’ve been waiting for, from the mind of filmmaker Michael S. Rodriguez (Last American Horror Show I & II).

A Town’s Terror

Felix (played by Michael Wainwright) is a war veteran struggling with PTSD after being the sole survivor of his squad in Afghanistan. Back in his small hometown of Cutler, he finds solace running his late father’s auto repair shop and with a creature he brought back from the war– a humanoid with a taste for human blood.

Inspired by Legends and Modern Struggles

Rodriguez masterfully blends modern-day issues with obscure folklore to create a unique tale. The concept for Daisy arose from a conversation with a real-life veteran who spoke of a legendary cryptid in Afghanistan – a giant vampire bat-like creature. This chilling inspiration fuels the film’s story.

A Nostalgic Treat with Modern Bite

Shot on a shoestring budget in just six days, Daisy prioritizes practical effects. This commitment delivers the kind of creature scares that define classic monster movies, offering a refreshing departure from CGI-heavy horror. Rodriguez describes the film as “a nostalgic yet unique take on the classic monster movie.”

Meet the Cast and Crew

The film stars Michael Wainwright as Felix, alongside Sparkle Soojian, Wade Pierson, Manuel Ramirez, and Matt Macedo. Newcomer Jamie Krivobok brings the terrifying Daisy to life.

Festival Darling Headed for Home Video

Daisy has already garnered positive buzz on the film festival circuit. This summer, horror fans can finally experience the chills for themselves as the film arrives on streaming platforms and physical media.

Mark your calendars and prepare for a summer of nostalgic chills with Daisy, the indie horror film that will leave you hungry for more. Here are the first images to whet your appetite.
