Untitled Horror Movie – Darren Barnet
The 2020 pandemic surely turned the entertainment industry on its head. For the filmmakers of Untitled Horror Movie, they rose to the challenge to have all their actors film themselves while complying with the stay at home orders. One of the stars, Darren Barnet, exclusively spoke with LRM Online about the experience of doing everything—acting, cinematography, lighting, stunts, and even makeup.
Here’s the official synopsis for Untitled Horror Movie:
A comedy about making a horror movie from the director who brought you, Truth or Dare (2017). When six co-stars learn their hit TV show is about to be cancelled, they decide to shoot their own movie—after all, how hard can it be? Stuck for a plot, they unintentionally summon a demonic spirit with an affinity for violence that starts picking them off, one vapid actor at a time.
The cast includes Luke Baines (Shadowhunters), Darren Barnet (Never Have I Ever), Tim Granaderos (13 Reasons Why), Claire Holt (Vampire Diaries), Katherine McNamara (Shadowhunters), Emmy Raver-Lampman (The Umbrella Academy), Kal Penn (Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle), Aisha Tyler (Friends), Kevin Daniels (Council of Dads), Lesly Kahn (Quantum Leap), and Sohm Kapila (Jane The Virgin). Nick Simon directed the movie from a script written by Baines and Simon.
