Horror and war go hand in hand but there aren't too many horror war films that easily come to mind. That's the niche that Eric Bress aims for with 'Ghosts of War', a haunted house story revolving around five GIs in Nazi-occupied France. Here’s everything you need to know about the project:
'Ghosts of War' is set to release on DirecTV on June 18 and via virtual cinema screenings, Video On Demand, and digitally on July 17.
'Ghosts of War' is the story of five American soldiers who are tasked with holding a French Chateau towards the end of World War II. What they don't realize is that the house is haunted and their already difficult lives are about to get a whole lot worse. Here's the official synopsis from Vertical Entertainment: "Five battle-hardened American soldiers are assigned to hold a French Chateau near the end of World War II. Formerly occupied by the Nazi high command, this unexpected respite quickly descends into madness when they encounter a supernatural enemy far more terrifying than anything seen on the battlefield."
Thwaites is an accomplished Australian actor who is best known for his role as Dick Grayson / Robin / Nightwing on DC Universe's 'Titans'. In the movie, Thwaites plays squad leader Chris, a soldier who has been through hell and is about to see things get even worse.
Besides Thwaites, the movie also stars his 'Titans' castmate Alan Ritchson as Butchie, Theo Rossi ('Sons of Anarchy') as Kirk, Skylar Astin ('Pitch Perfect') as Eugene, and Kyle Gallner ('Smallville') as Tappert, all members of the team. Other cast members include Billy Zane, Alexander Behrang Keshtkar, Kaloyan Hristov, and Yanitsa Mihailova.
Bress is an American screenwriter, film director, and producer. His most notable works include 'The Final Destination' series and 'The Butterfly Effect'. Bress has written and directed this movie that has been produced by D. Todd Shepherd, Joe Simpson, and Shelley Madison with Vertical Entertainment distributing digitally.
A trailer for the movie was released online on June 11. It summarizes the premise and introduces us to the surroundings of the castle before slowly dragging us into the darker secrets that lurk in these halls.
