IsoFilms options "Carnival", "Jack" and "The Dark Tree", Samuel Benavides to Direct
IsoFilms options the futuristic, dystopian thriller "Carnival Horror" from "Born Bad" writer Jared Cohn, a revenge tale"Jack in the Box" from "Dr. Who" writer/producer Derrick Sherwin and a scifi /horror film "The Dark Tree" from Samuel Benavides.
"Jack in the box" aka "The Rolls" is a twisted story about JACK, a mental asylum escapee, exacting revenge against his former mentor, JAMES, after 20 years of planning. The story takes place over a road trip from NYC to LosA. Jack, disguised as a hitchhiker, outwits James into accompanying him. The script was penned by "Derrick Sherwin" of BBC critical acclaim and producer of the original "Dr. Who" program, also on BBC. Derrick Sherwin has spent much of the last 50 years preparing for a script like this. This is a 'needle in a haystalk', Benavides said. "A simply brilliant script. That fact that Derrick, now in his 70s, has brought a unique, english voice to this lunatic Jack is something I'm very excited to share with an audience".
"The Dark Tree" is a horror film about a 13th century forest and its connection with Death. The story centers around an evil, immortality searching, psychopath whose destiny is to become the Grim Reaper. He moves from village to village with a small army of cloaked henchmen, yielding his vicious scythe in pursuit of a man legend says is a direct descendent of Death. All three pics are set up as Benavides' first feature follow ups to "Mansfield Path" written/directed by Samuel Benavides, which is currently broadcasting on Shorts Ch, Sundance Ch, Flix Network and Itunes.
