Insidious actress Lin Shaye (above) and Rory Culkin (brother of Macaulay) have joined Jack Goes Home, a horror drama from director Thomas Dekker. They join the already cast Britt Robertson, Nikki Reed and Daveigh Chase.

Dekker previously directed 2008’s Whore, but has acted in a number of horror films including Fear Clinic, A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) and Chromeskull 2. Production on Jack Goes Home begins this week.

Here is how Deadline describe the film:

Written and to be helmed by Dekker, the pic centers on Jack (Culkin), an educated and well versed magazine editor living in LA. He is hit hard by the news of his father’s death in a violent and horrific car crash, which his mother (Shaye) has survived. He returns to his hometown of Denver to nurse his mother through her physical and emotional injuries. There he uncovers long buried secrets and lies within his family history, his parents, his friends and his very identity, fueled by madness, sexuality, hauntings and violence.

Robertson will co-star as Jack’s pregnant fiancé, Chase plays Jack’s best friend, and Reed is her girlfriend. Louis Hunter also co-stars.

Matt WavishA keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
