Writer/Director Eric Red

The Hollywood Reporter put out that Grand Illusions Entertainment along with financing partner David Steiner will be producing ERIC RED’s (Stopping Power) next feature, a supernatural horror/thriller called 100 FEET, one that he wrote and will be directing.

Here’s the first look at the Synopsis: A young woman, Marnie Watson, is granted early release from her prison sentence for manslaughter (killing her husband – a violent NYC cop – in self defense) on condition she wear an electronic ankle bracelet and remain within her home, effectively under house arrest, for the remainder of her sentence. Her late husband’s partner keeps tabs on her from a patrol car parked across the street, hoping she’ll violate probation and he can send her back to prison. But the 100-foot radius her ankle bracelet allows isn’t the worst of her problems. Her dead husband –now a malevolent ghost–is still in the house, where he died — intent on savage revenge.

Finally Eric Red had this to say exclusively to AITH about the project and its status: “This is an elevated, old school and classical supernatural thriller that relies on suspense, character and suggestion. But it will also have also horrific scenes of visceral horror. We are in pre production, currently completing casting and scheduled to begin filming in Hungary in early 2007.”
