Horror Thriller ‘Cold Moon’ Set to Shoot Next Month, Griff Furst Directing

by Jordan McGuire on February 11, 2015


Cold Moon will begin shooting this month in Louisiana. The horror thriller takes place in a small town where murders occur and supernatural revenge is real. Cold Moon stars Interstellar alum Josh Stewart, three-time Emmy winner Christopher Lloyd, Robby Kay (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Academy Award nominee Candy Clark (Zodiac), Frank Whaley (Pulp Fiction), Rachel Brooke Smith (A Matter of Time), Laura Cayouette (Django Unchained) and introduces Sarah Catherine.

Cold Moon takes place in Babylon, Florida, a small town with a lingering uneasiness. This hair-raising tale begins as Evelyn Larkin’s (Candy Clark) granddaughter, Margaret Larkin (Sarah Catherine) is brutally murdered by an unknown killer. Her body is dumped into the murky waters of the Styx River – the river that once swallowed Margaret’s parents ten years earlier. Evelyn immediately suspects the two-faced banker, Nathan Redfield (Josh Stewart) as the murderer. Nathan’s father, played by Christopher Lloyd, is a very wealthy man and runs the town out of his back pocket. Nathan tries to hide his dark secrets from Sheriff Ted Hale (Frank Whaley) in attempts to steer him off course in his searches for the real killer. Nathan begins to see ghastly specters determined to avenge their deaths.


Griff Furst will direct and produce the film through his production company, Curmudgeon Films. Furst will direct from a script he co-wrote with Jack Snyder, based on the novel Cold Moon Over Babylon, written by two-time Hugo Award-nominated novelist and screenwriter Michael McDowell. McDowell is a well known screenwriter who penned Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Tales from the Darkside: The Movie. So, you know this story will have the right amount of menace.
