With principal photography expected to be completed in the early days of December, producers of the indie horror film The Nursery yesterday released their first still image from the film, featuring actress Maddi Conway in the lead role of Ranae. The image was first posted on the film’s Facebook page, as an exclusive first-look for the film’s 47,000 Facebook fans.
Executive Producers Glenn Chung, Jay Sapiro, and Chris Micklos said that they were very excited to release the initial image of the film to their incredible social fan base, and they noted that more images—from production photos to stills from the movie—will be posted in the days to come.
“Our fans have been so loyal and enthusiastic,” Chung said today, “that we wanted to give them just a little treat…a preview of the great images and look that we are developing for the film.”
Sapiro concurred, adding, “We have a top-notch team working to make The Nursery look terrific, and day after day, we could not be more pleased with how it’s turning out.”
Micklos hinted that the first image might also give fans a glimpse into the broader tone and feel of the film…and what they can expect from the finished product.
“Maddi Conway has been amazing for us in The Nursery’s lead role,” Micklos said, “and even from this one image, fans should be able to get a feel for what she’s bringing to the table. Intensity. Gravity. Passion. Maddi is putting together a real breakout performance that anchors the entire film!”
The Nursery is an independent horror movie in the tradition of Halloween, Paranormal Activity, and House of the Devil. When college freshman Ranae agrees to babysit for a family with a tragic past, her run-of-the-mill Saturday night quickly turns into a confrontation with unspeakable horror. Stalked by a sinister presence and haunted by ghosts from her own past, Ranae and her friends must confront an evil spirit determined to hunt them down one-by-one on a deliberate march toward its ultimate prey.
