Gharial Productions Horror Film “The Kult” hits the floors in Southern California

San Diego, CA, Oct 18, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio / prurgent) San Diego-based Gharial Productions announces that upcoming horror film "The Kult" began principal photography on September 27, 2010 in San Diego and Riverside Counties under the direction of Kip Shelton.

The screenplay is based on the best selling thriller by UK author Shaun Jeffrey, and it weaves a terrifying story of a hunt for a serial killer. Acting out of misguided loyalty to his friends, Detective Prosper Snow is goaded into helping them perform a copycat killing. But when the real killer comes after him, it’s not only his life on the line, but his family’s too. If he goes to his colleagues for help, he risks being arrested for murder. If he doesn’t, he risks being killed.

The screenplay went into negotiations in the middle of November 2009 between Gharial Productions and Leucrota Press, and emerged with a solid contract offer and acceptance in early December.

The film stars Joe Soro, an unknown to the Hollywood movie scene, as Detective Prosper Snow. His casting carries on Gharial’s history of casting fresh faces. The entire film will be shot on location in San Diego and Riverside Counties, including the cities of San Diego, Poway, Temecula, and Lake Elsinore.

With two weeks of shooting already under the cast and crews’ belts, the level of excitement on set is palpable. As an added bonus, Shaun Jeffrey flew out to the US on October 5th to visit the set. He and the cast attended a book signing at the Barnes & Noble store in Oceanside, CA on the 6th.
