Someone's Knocking at the Door director Chad Ferrin gets on a Horse

If you've ever seen SOMEONE'S KNOCKING AT THE DOOR, then you know that director Chad Ferrin is, shall we say, one sick puppy. A movie about two maniacs who literally f*ck people to death, it's an ode to grindhouse movies of the 70s and slasher flicks of the 80s... just with horrifically ghoulish sex. (You can actually listen to us talk about it on the most recent podcast HERE.)

Ferrin is apparently easing back on the psycho-sexual creepiness for his next flick, simply titled HORSE. Ferrin described the project to Fangoria thusly:

"I’m putting everything I’ve got into HORSE—heart and soul!. It’s basically about a man seeking vengeance upon the men who murdered his horse—not necessarily a horror film, but full tension and horrific moments, with elements of ALIENS, ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 and THE THING thrown in. It crosses all genres beautifully.”

Ferrin continued:

“In the Old West, a man relies on two things to survive: his gun and his horse. Luther Cobb just lost one of those, his beloved horse Bud. Cobb is a man of true grit, having fought in the Civil War and skirmishes in the American Indian Wars. He has seen plenty of bloodshed and is now on the trail of those responsible for killing his friend. HORSE is a homage to Budd Boetticher, Sam Peckinpah, John Ford, Howard Hawks, Sam Fuller and Sergio Leone. It is vengeance/siege/chase/masculinity/morality packed into one hell of an action-driven Western. And best of all, it’s being produced by the man who gave me my start in the film biz, Michael Leahy [whose credits include FEAST and DRIVE]. And with him behind it, I am 100 percent confident that we’ll make an amazing film that will reach the widest possible audience.”

Sounds very encouraging. You can check out the Facebook page for HORSE right HERE, which includes the storyboard you see below. Hopefully more news on HORSE will gallop in soon.
