Casting females for Strange Tales, an anthology horror film of several bizarre unique stories.
The stories are edgy, dark but urban contemporary in the stye of graphic comic books. We are casting actors who are ideally looking for a challenge, are open minded and want to be involved in a production that offers something different in the horror genre other than 'popcorn' horror. Some of the characters will have some mild nudity within the scenes; however, it is not gratuitous and only within the needs of the scene and the situation.
Example story lines:
A misogynistic butterfly collector assists a young woman, lying sick by the roadside. He takes her to his apartment on the pretext of helping her. Once there she is subjected to a terrifying ordeal but is too ill to escape. The next morning the man enters her room to find she has transformed into a moth – trapped within the cocoon he is now her prey and food for her sustenance.
A young opportunistic woman who cons her way from one victim to another accepts an offer from a stranger in a bar. The offer of making a lot of money tempts her to agree to a rendezvous but when she gets there she is now the victim of a strange blood sucking human leech family.
A young black woman is attacked and killed by a gang. She appears in the dreams of her assailants and exacts a terrifying revenge on each of them.
