From the Darkroom: The Horror Movie Wraps Production in Mississippi River City – Magnolia State Live

Natchez has felt a bit like Hollywood over the past month as filming for a new horror movie wraps this week.

The film, tentatively dubbed “From Black,” is classified as a horror film and a psychological thriller, but not in the sense one might think, producer Kelly Frazier of K7 Entertainment said, adding that he should let the audience filled with emotion instead of clinging to their seats. In terror.

The relatable heroine Cora is a recovering drug addict, “desperate with closure and struggling with overwhelming guilt over the disappearance of her young son,” said co-producer Vincent Cardinale.

She is offered the opportunity to get her son back, but at what cost?

“It shows us how far a mother has to go to find her missing child,” Frazier said.

The film is directed by Thomas Marchese of Darkroom Films, co-written by Marchese and Jessub Flower and produced by Frazier and Cardinale.

It stars Anna Camp, seen in ‘Pitch Perfect’, ‘True Blood’ and ‘The Help’, and co-stars John Ales, seen in ‘Euphoria’ and ‘Bosch’, Jennifer Lafleur of ‘Big Little Lies’ and “Billions,” Travis Hammer from “True Detective” and “Ray Donovan” and Natchez’s own Richie Montgomery starring young Eduardo Campirano as Noah.

Other faces residents might notice onscreen include real Adams County sheriff’s deputies and real search and rescue officers, Frazier added.

The film could hit screens within a year depending on the distributor, which is yet to be determined, she said.

“We’re juggling distribution deals, so we weren’t sure yet,” she said.

Natchez was chosen for the filming destination thanks to the generous hosts here, she said.

“Thomas and I went down and scouted late last year with Devin Heath and Lindsay Gilbert at Visit Natchez,” Frazier said. “They are solely responsible for getting us here because we’ve circled and driven all of Mississippi.”

“They went everywhere,” Cardinale added, “Greenville, Jackson and the coast, and then when they got here they said this is where we’d like to spend a month of our lives.”

They said Crooked Letter Pictures, owned by Tate Taylor, was also helpful during their filming process.

“They were so friendly and helpful. The whole city has been helpful,” Frazier said.
