Written and directed by Taylor Ri’chard, owner of Atlanta-based 3rd Fathom Films, HALLOWED BE THY NAME is set for release June 2 by Gravitas Ventures, and stars Collin Shephard, Alissa Shaye Hale, Zander Krenger, Fiona McQuinn, Mamie Morgan, Lolita Price and Bill Barrett. The synopsis: “Superstition, magic and bad decisions drive us down a road into a small town in rural Louisiana with Devin [Shephard], a 17-year-old boy, being dragged to his mother’s hometown after his parents’ ugly divorce. After arriving at his grandmother’s place and settling into his unwanted new life, Devin meets two locals who sweep him out of his comfort zone. Like most teens, they are curious, and ignoring all warnings, they venture deep into a forsaken cave, thought to be haunted by local town people. Together they meet Cauchemar [Barrett], a legendary demon that wreaks havoc on all those it encounters. They learn quickly that sometimes in life we have to allow nature to take its course, because there are some things that just aren’t meant to be.”
