The Next 'Stranger Things'? Teens' Horror Movie Shows Why You Should Never Go Into the Woods
Eight young filmmakers from the Hastings Horror Camp in New York have written, shot and edited a film, and they're the stars.
Move over Stranger Things — there's a new group of thrill-seeking kids in town.
Eight young filmmakers from the Hastings Horror Camp in New York have written, shot and edited a film — and they're the stars.
THE DIE OFF tells the story a tick infestation with deadly consequences in a small town.
InsideEdition.com spoke with four of the young stars, Bee Herbstman, 11; Asher Herbstman, 14; Ryan Goldberg, 14; and Thatcher Clough, 14. They spent five days working on the film with help from industry professionals in sound, music and editing.
Throughout the process, YouTuber and actor Logan Paul and director Brant Sersen, among others, gave the youngsters words of advice and encouragement.
For Thatcher, the best part of the project was "us all working together as a group and trying to fight through all of our problems and figuring out solutions."
Asher, who said he finds it "pretty entertaining" to be scared by horror flicks, has always been drawn to the genre.
"They stay with you after you've seen them," he said. "When you go to bed, you're not going to think about the Adam Sandler movie that you saw, you're going to think about the scariest thing you've ever seen."
They're now making the finishing touches to THE DIE OFF before its premiere.
"Our goal was to scare people with this," Asher said. "But if you don't get scared, it's fine because we still wanted to make a masterpiece."
