What if you were so afraid of the outside world that you couldn't escape when terror invaded your home? That's the idea behind the upcoming horror film SHUT IN, which just began principal photography this week in Shreveport, Louisiana. Now THR is reporting that "Leverage" star Beth Riesgraf is set to star in the film alongside SCREAM 4's Rory Culkin, Martin Starr (VERONICA MARS) and Jack Kesy (Guillermo Del Toro’s "The Strain").
Adam Schindler, who wrote and produced the Brian Netto-helmed DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN, is directing from a script by TJ Cimfel and David White that won top honors at the 2011 Shriekfest and was on the 2012 Blood List of Hollywood’s top unproduced horror screenplays. Steven Schneider, whose credits include the horror films INSIDIOUS and PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, is producing with Jeff Rice (LONE SURVIVOR), Lati Grobman and Erik Olsen.
Riesgraf is playing a woman who suffers from agoraphobia so crippling that when a trio of criminals break into her house, she cannot bring herself to flee. But what the intruders don’t realize is that agoraphobia is not her only psychosis.
Executive producing are Christa Campbell, Matthew Lamothe, Tommy Vlahopoulos, Brian Netto and Vicarious Entertainment.
