Speaking with Ottowa Citizen, Director Joel Schumacher talked a little about his next project – the Nazi-horror film “Town Creek”.
Despite the Romanian filming location, this is “not really a vampire movie”. In fact it’s about something far more controversial – spooky reincarnations of the Third Reich’s key members.
“It’s about Hitler and Himmler and Goebbels’ association with the occult — this is what they based the Master Race on… the one thing about the Nazis is that they so loved themselves that they documented everything, and there are these great documentaries on Hitler’s obsession with the occult. So it’s a ‘horror’ movie based on that by a very intelligent young writer” says Schumacher.
The first half is set in 1936 at the height of Hitler’s power, whilst the second half will be set during the present day and will deal with “ghosts of the past rising up to confront today’s world”.
Dave Kajganich (“The Invasion”) penned the script, Ian Wingrove is doing the visual effects, and Dominic Purcell, Jesse Metcalfe and Joy McBrinn are so far the only confirmed cast members.
