Bill Oberst Jr., is a name well known in the horror film industry. His unsettling screen presence has haunted dozens of films; his role in “Take This Lollipop”--the most popular (and frightening)
“I’m usually the bad guy,” Bill says. “But DEADLY REVISIONS lets me be the one getting tormented. The question is...by who? Or what? It’s great because all of the horror fans I know are bored with clichés. DEADLY REVISIONS plays with all the clichés and twists them around. So it’s really fun.”
In DEADLY REVISIONS, Bill plays horror film writer Grafton Torn for whom hypnotherapy and nightmares reveal memories that might or might not be real…and that might or might not be deadly.
“What extra fun about it is that, even though I am technically the one in peril, I might actually be the bad guy, too,” Bill explains. “The script twists so much the audience has to keep reevaluating the information they get. And my character is a totally unreliable narrator!”
Blair and Oberst met last year and connected instantly, discovering how much they had in common. They had endless conversations about horror and their part in it; it wasn’t long before they knew they wanted to do a project together. And DEADLY REVISIONS came to the forefront.
“We had been talking about working together,” Blair says. “DEADLY REVISIONS seemed a perfect fit. How fun would it be, we both thought, to have Bill on the other end of the hatchet for a change?”
Blair and Oberst are betting it will fun. Bloody good fun.
DEADLY REVISIONS begins shooting later this year. For more info visit http://www.2writers.com/
