“Self-Storage,” a horror movie from Woodhaven Production Co. and Verdi Productions, has finished shooting, and the filmmakers are already planning a sequel. A sneak preview of the film is slated for Oct. 13 at a location to be determined, with all the actors expected to be in attendance. The movie has a target release date of March 2013.
Part of the film was shot on location at a self-storage facility in East Greenwich, R.I. Filming apparently went so well that writer/director Tom DeNucci and co-star Eric Roberts have already agreed to work on a sequel.
Producer Chad A. Verdi called the movie “the best film that we have made to date” and said he was making the sequel a priority project.
"We all had a lot of fun working on this film, and it was [Roberts] who convinced me that this project has potential for a franchise," he said. "Tom DeNucci has already begun penning the sequel, and filming is planned for 2013.”
Beside Roberts, the cast includes Jonathan Silverman, Michael Berryman, Eliza Roberts, and professional wrestlers Tommy Dreamer and Thea Trinidad.
In addition to writing and directing, DeNucci plays the lead role of Jake, a night watchman at a highly secured self-storage facility. Under the film’s premise, Jake’s friends are home from college and looking to party, so he invites them to his 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.
“Self-Storage” is the third film developed by Woodhaven Production Co. and Verdi Productions.
