First Shot of Oscar Nominee Bruce Dern in ‘Hellblazers’ Released

It’s not often that a two-time Oscar nominee stars in a horror film.  But according to Deadline, the prolific Bruce Dern is doing exactly that.  Dern will be starring in Hellblazers, a production that recently wrapped in California with very little details yet to be released.  Below is the first shot featuring Dern (The Haunting, The ‘Burbs) in the action-horror film.

Hellblazers, directed by Justin Lee, has a very interesting concept that sounds like it could be a lot of bloody fun.  Deadline describes it like this: “The story, set in the late 1980s, follows a satanic cult that has singular focus of unleashing hell on Earth. With the help of an ancient incantation, they conjure a demon, and its members are tasked with feeding it the populous of a nearby small southwestern town.”  Basically, they had me at “satanic cult”, “demon” and “1980s.”

Dern is part of an all-star horror movie cast in this one.  He is joined by big-screen veterans Courtney Gains (Children of the Corn), Adrienne Barbeau (Creepshow, The Fog), Meg Foster (They Live) and the incomparable John Kassir (voice of the The Crypt Keeper in Tales from the Crypt.)  If that’s not enough both Billy Zane (Titanic) and the Candyman himself, Tony Todd, had already been previously announced.

While not much is yet known about this film (including a release date), the fact that it’s in post-production and boasts this impressive of a cast bodes well for horror fans everywhere.
