"Self-Storage," a horror movie by the Woodhaven Production Co. and Verdi Productions, is now in pre-production with filming set to begin in July in East Greenwich, R.I. The film will be produced by Chad A. Verdi, Gino Pereira and Tom DeNucci, with DeNucci directing and Michelle Verdi supervising the music.
"Self-Storage" tells the story of Jake, the night watchman at a highly-secured self-storage facility. His friends are home from college and looking to party, so Jake invites them to work to indulge in a night of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. However, the characters find themselves trapped in an evening of pure terror. The working tagline is "Barbed-wire fences are meant to keep people OUT. But these fences keep people IN."
Woodhaven and Verdi also produced the popular slasher movie "Inkubus," which is currently available as video on demand. The film premiered in movie theatres last Halloween and went to DVD on Feb 21. The companies' second joint effort, "Infected," is finished with production and will premiere this Halloween. "Self-Storage" is Woodhaven and Verdi's third endeavor. A release date for "Self Storage" hasn't been set.
This latest film featuring the industry isn't the first. A 2002 movie starring Rainn Wilson (Dwight from "The Office") and called "Self Storage" (without the hyphen) tells the story of a man who is set up by his wife and wife's lover to become trapped in a storage unit.
