Los Angeles production company Lesson 1 Entertainment is proud to announce the completion of post-production on "The Raking", an independent feature horror film starring Bryan Brewer, Cree Kelly, Allie Rivera, Thatcher Robinson, Marisa Davila and Marshal Hilton ("The Bunnyman Massacre"). Directed by star Brewer from a script he co-wrote with writer and producer Laura Heine, Brewer also produces with Rivera under their Lesson 1 Entertainment banner.
In "The Raking", "A group of college students set out to debunk an urban legend in Joshua Tree, California, for their anthropology thesis, only to find they become part of the legend themselves."
Director and co-writer Brewer says of his approach to the micro-budget "The Raking," "We wanted to tackle the challenge of a satisfying, cinematic horror film on a budget without relying on the found footage genre. As a huge horror fan myself, I'm hopeful we were successful in delivering a really cool creature-feature that will be welcomed by all audiences, and especially the genre fans."
Says Rivera, "We are excited to announce the film's completion and to release the first teaser trailer of The Raking. We hope monster fans will dig it as much as we enjoyed making it."
Designed by SyFy's Face/Off season 4 contestant Eric Fox of MORBX FX, the artist says of his approach in creating the titular creature (which is based on the urban legend of The Rake), "It was all practical, and I wanted to deliver something we've never seen before in the genre. Also, there's really very little information that exists on the legend itself, so that allowed me creative license in my design, and once it was set, I think creature actor Alan Maxson really brought the result to creepy life."
Worldwide distribution rights for "The Raking" are currently available and to learn more about the film follow them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/TheRakingMovie, Twitter at @TheRakingMovie and Instagram at www.instagram.com/THERAKINGMOVIE.
