Most of the cast & crew were local to Pittsburgh, PA. However, we had cast members travel in to film from New York City, Los Angeles, and China!
Meet The Cast
Chad Conley stars as Chris Sullivan, a family man struggling to keep his family together. His wife's history of mental illness, a young teenage daughter, and a dark secret from his past combine to make a volatile mix of emotions and distrust in the Sullivan home. When he wakes to an empty bed, his search for both his missing wife and personal redemption begins.
Danielle Lozeau delivers a knock-out performance as Natalie, Chris Sullivan's sister-in-law and main antagonist. Her quick temper and distrust of Chris is only surpassed by her love for her sister and niece. She's also struggling with her own demons, as she bears heavy guilt for her broken marriage.
Christine Starkey makes her big screen debut as Ashley Sullivan, who finds herself waking up in the middle of the woods with no memories of how she arrived there, or how to get home. This isn't the first time that Ashley has gone missing... but will it be the last?
Chuck Hendershot plays a mysterious drifter who stumbles upon Ashley's unconscious body deep in the woods. Is he there to help, or does he have something more insidious up his sleeve?
Robert Liscio gives an electrifying performance as Joe, Natalie's estranged husband and leader of a local gang of thugs and petty criminals. Joe's sordid past clashes with his desire to turn his life around and repair his broken marriage to Natalie.
Jack Davis portrays Greg, a reformed criminal who used to run with Joe's crew before a tragic event forced him to change his ways. Now a parole officer trying to help his old friends mend their ways, he helps comfort and protect Natalie in her time of struggle.
Benjamin Sheeler gives the film a heartfelt performance as Chief Earl Dodson, the local police chief trying to make sense of the recent strange events in town. Understaffed and overwhelmed, the Chief does his best to keep the panic and chaos at bay while keeping his beloved town safe from the unknown menace.
Michelle Coben stars as Cami, the emotionally resilent teenage daughter of Chris and Ash. She provides the strong and calm center of the Sullivan family's turbulent storm of dysfunction and uncertainty.
Christopher Murphy pulls no punches as he delivers a cheeky turn as the town's villainous Mayor, more concerned with personal profit than the people he was elected to represent. Is his greed the ultimate cause of the missing people and escalating body count?
Matthew Bright provides comic relief with his performance as Officer Jimmy Todd, the newest member of Elkwood's police department. As the town descends into chaos, he is clearly ill-equipped to handle the challenges. But his warm heart and youthful innocence helps keep the mood light as the darkness encroaches.
