Project directors include acclaimed ghost directors such as Danny Gordon, Larry Fessenden, Bobby Rowe, Andrew Cash, Zach Pacero and Christian Pasveriolo, as well as new voices like Alexandra Neyer; Alex Austin and Care Siart; And Kyle I. Kelly and Adam Brown.
Crooker James P. Gannon and Sophie Gold co-produced his company Ghost Gang Productions.
“We are thrilled to be working with Gravitas Ventures and Kamikaz Dogfight to bring this exciting and suspenseful anthology to the world,” Crocker said. “Making this film with so many talented directors was a fruitful process, and I’m incredibly proud to be able to create a story unlike anything else in the horror genre.”
“This bloody take on Covid-Esc separation scares us into our own darkness,” said Megan Hugins, acquisition coordinator at Gravitas Ventures. “Using an anthology format, different filmmakers have shown us how the citizens of the world are one and the same when faced with a horrific outbreak … but how we survive is different.”
Andrew said, “It’s always fun to work with some new directors and veterans for the times we’re living in. Van den Houghton of Kamikaz Dogfight.
