[RUSSELL] [SUPPORTING] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 35-50] [ETHNICITY: ANY]

OWNS THE GAS STATION AND THE CAR.

Russell never had big dreams, and certainly none that ever involved leaving his rural hometown. Running his own gas station on the outskirts of town with his wife of nearly 10 years, Mary-Lynn, has been more than enough to keep him happy. He likes to stay busy, even if it’s starting to turn him grey.

 

His Wal-Mart clearance-sale flannel is covered in grime and blood. Sweaty and exhausted, he rushes from the dark forest toward his car, the one the drifter currently occupies. Desperate to get inside, what he used to consider the love of his life emerges from the woods behind him. Whatever she is now, it wants him dead.

**Actor shooting dates: Oct 19th and 20th

[MARY-LYNN] [SUPPORTING] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 30-45] [ETHNICITY: ANY]

SHE IS POSSESSED.

Her family always thought she settled for Russell. She was a bright girl, even spent a couple years at a local college, a first for her family. Mary-Lynn never felt that way. Russell is good to her and is all she really cares about. She loves to bring him lunch at work and see his goofy smile when she picks him up after he closes up shop. Their life is simple, but it’s happy and it’s theirs.

 

When Mary-Lynn arrives at the gas station on this night, something attacks and drags her into the woods. Russell witness the attack and races into the dark after her. When he eventually finds her, she looks like Mary-Lynn, but it’s not her. Her eyes are hollow, her face emotionless. Something has taken over and it wants him dead.

**Actor shooting for one day on either: Oct 19th or 20th

[DANIEL] [SUPPORTING] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 13-15] [ETHNICITY: ANY]

Good natured and maybe a little pudgy, Daniel is the youngest of the family who has gotten used to his position as the baby. This, however, proves to be a detriment when his family begins to display a series of bizarre behaviors which only he seems to witness. Can he convince his family to take him seriously and hear his pleas, or will they be overcome by something they refuse to acknowledge? 

**A mix between Ben from “IT” meets Peter from “Hereditary”.

**Actor shooting dates: Oct 26th and 27th

[SARAH] [SUPPORTING] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 15-17] [ETHNICITY: ANY]

Although she is the older sibling, Sarah is reserved and rather bookish. Far from a social butterfly, she does have a good relationship with her brother who brings out her more playful childish side. This relationship becomes strained, however, when Sarah sees something disturbing in her father’s office, setting forth a chain of events that leaves her shaken and withdrawn.

**Actor shooting dates: Oct 26th and 27th

[FAITH] [SUPPORTING] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 40-45] [ETHNICITY: ANY]

Despite being a loving mother and supportive wife, Faith is feeling the burden of playing two roles in an effort to make up for her work obsessed husband. This strain causes her to overlook the concerns of her son and leaves her exposed to the very forces he tries to warn her about.
