Production begins on supernatural revenge flick Savaged

What's worse than being attacked and brutalized by a gang of thugs? Being possessed by a dead Native American chief only a few hours later!

That's the story of SAVAGED, a supernatural thriller about to commence production. Produced by Raven Banner Entertainment and written and set to be directed by Michael S. Ojeda, the film is expected to begin lensing this week at an abandoned gold mine on the outskirts of Los Angeles.

Savaged tells the story of Zoe (starring newcomer Amanda Adrienne), a beautiful deaf woman who is abducted, brutalized and left for dead by a murderous gang. When she is found by a local native medicine man, he tries to save her but his efforts take a disastrous turn when she awakes possessed by a murdered Apache chief, hellbent on revenge.

Writer/Director Ojeda recently directed two season's of Spike's "Deadliest Warrior."

"Savaged is a throwback to classic horror movies like "Evil Dead", "Dawn of the Dead" and "Frankenstein", fused with today's filmmaking sensibilities while incorporating popular elements such as a strong female lead, revenge, and even the zombie mythos, with a powerful love story and of course edge of your seat action" says Ojeda. "The passion and belief that Raven Banner has expressed in my project is more than flattering. I'm looking forward to building a long lasting relationship with them."

SAVAGED sure sounds like it has it all, so let's say a little chant in favor of Ojeda and his crew and hope we get a flick that's as solid and weird as its premise.
