From the Director of Ginger Snaps 2 comes HUSH

Principal Photography begins today on Brett Sullivan's next feature HUSH Attention: Arts/Entertainment Editor, Media Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 20, 2005) - Panic Pictures Inc. announced the beginning of principal photography on the supernatural thriller, HUSH, begins today. The film is directed by Brett Sullivan (GINGER SNAPS: UNLEASHED) and is shooting at Sullivan's 120 year-old Victorian home. The film marks the screen debut of Alanna Chisholm and Lauren Roy in the starring roles. Adam Seybold, Nick Abraham, Paul Soren and Nickolas Tortolano round out the cast.

Danielle, a beautiful psychology student, is not only haunted by a troubled past, but by an evil presence in the here and now. To prove to her sister, Anna, that she is sane, Danielle sets out to document the haunting in her home, but instead she becomes possessed by the sinister soul of a child killer. Anna struggles to save her sister before Danielle commits the unthinkable - the torturous and suffocating murder of innocence. Can Anna rescue Danielle, or will she need help from the most unlikely of places… the past? Only time will tell and it isn't on her side.

HUSH is the second feature film for director Brett Sullivan, after the award-winning GINGER SNAPS: UNLEASHED which has collected many honours and is a film festival favourite.

Producer and agent Doug Patterson, who has produced films for award-winning directors Jeff Beesley, SPARKLE and Jessica Bradford, WINTER SUN, joins Sullivan and HUSH.

Michael Capellupo, screenwriter/producer, has penned the short, A PROMISE, starring Gordon Pinsent, and the thriller, HUSTLE.

Shooting on the DVX-100, Sullivan, Patterson and Capellupo, Panic Pictures' founders, have set out to meld iconic images, akin to those in recent Japanese horror films, with western storytelling. HUSH, the debut film of Panic Pictures, is truly an independent film, financed by a group of Canadian Businessman calling themselves the Thursday Night Poker Club and the generous help of the Toronto film community.
