I’m a big fan of director Anthony DiBlasi, and I am upset that his most recent film, the dark thriller Missionary, is yet to receive a UK release. I caught the film at FrightFest, and it was a superb and edgy thriller daring to have a psycho who was Mormon.
DiBlasi’s other films have been far more horror inclined, with the excellent Clive Barker adaptation Dread, and the full on anything goes horror of Cassadaga. DiBlasi also directed a segment for the long in development horror anthology, The Profane Exhibit, and now he has another horror in the works, Last Shift.
The film is now in post-production, and is heading to Cannes looking for buyers. So to celebrate, the first artwork and synopsis have been unleashed.
Last Shift (originally titled Paymon: The King of Hell) is written and directed by Anthony DiBlasi, and the cast includes Juliana Harkavy and Joshua Mikel.
From director Anthony DiBlasi comes a Manson-inspired horror film centering around a transitioning police station. Officer Jessica Loren has been assigned to wait for a Hazmat team to pick up bio-hazardous waste from the station’s armory. But unbeknownst to Jessica, cult Leader John Michael Paymon has haunted the department ever since he and two of this followers committed suicide a year ago to date. And now, Jessica is about to find out how dangerous they can be when she’s left alone on this Last Shift.
