Filmmaker Mike Mendez (The Convent, Big Ass Spider!, Don’t Kill It) – who can currently be seen in James Wan’s Malignant! – is back with an upcoming horror movie titled The Devil’s Trap, and Deadline brings us the info this week. For starters, production is currently getting underway on the film, which features a cast including acting legend Bruce Dern.
Richard Grieco, Michael Paré, Sofia Nistratova, and Nick Davi also star.
In Mendez’s latest, “A big city hospital is terrorized by a demonic presence. In the quiet nighttime corridors and patient rooms of a city hospital, Abigail (Nistratova) consoles her traumatized brother, Billy (Davi) who is now a paraplegic. Billy suffers from horrible nightmares in which he revisits his childhood, where we meet his alcoholic and violent father. Sharing Billy’s hospital room is a dying man, Mr. Cohen (Dern) who seems to know everything about Billy and Abigail. There’s also another horrific presence roaming in the hospital terrifying patients and staff alike.
“Paré portrays Father Gestas. Grieco is the lovestruck hospital orderly who worships his nurse g.f. Diana. Their romantic interludes in dark corners of the hospital make his job much easier.”
Michael Caissie (No Tears in Hell) wrote the screenplay.
