‘Bloody Bobby’ looks set to bring a new wave of slasher mayhem to the screen and today kickstarts the beginning of something looking set to be quite special.
Film veteran Robert Miano (Donnie Brasco) will play the character of Old Man Granger in Black Pumpkin Pictures’ horror thriller ‘Bloody Bobby’, directed by AFI grad Anthony Hall (Mud Season). The film recounts the story of Bobby Maxwell, a 10-year-old trick or treater who is tormented by bullies on Halloween night and mysteriously disappears; 20 years later he returns to seek revenge. “The interesting thing about Bloody Bobby is that it is a reflection of some of the pervasive ills that haunt our society,” says Hall.
In addition to Miano, ‘Bloody Bobby’ will feature Ace Marrero (Madison County) as Will and Jessica Morris (Role Models) as Crystal. Curt Clendenin (Max Neptune and the Menacing Squid) will take on the lead role of Reggie Griffin and his twin brother Alex. Juri Koll is producing, and recently brought on Mark David as cinematographer. They worked together on the features ‘American Cowslip’ and ‘A Venice Tale’, the TV pilot ‘Low Lifes’, and several other projects. The story is created by Ryan McGonagle, who also co wrote the script with Jen Mathiasen. ‘Bloody Bobby’ is the first in a three-part series. As Koll says, “I got into this because I love the story – it’s a unique horror story with strong characters – nothing cliché about it. What makes it even better is that we are looking at a solid franchise.”
