The movie version of my novel WHITE KNUCKLE is on the way.

Friday, January 26th, 2018

For Immediate Release:

Visionary writer/director Eric Red is teaming with Horror Equity Fund for the new horror movie, WHITE KNUCKLE. Eric has crafted a script and will helm the movie based on his novel of the same name. Horror fans know Eric as the writer of genre favorites, Near Dark (1987) and The Hitcher (1986). He is also the writer / director of Body Parts (1991) and Bad Moon (1996).

WHITE KNUCKLE tells a gripping story of female empowerment about a woman who survives an attack by a serial killer, and then takes it upon herself to stop him from hurting anyone else.

Marlon Schulman CEO, Brian Herskowitz CCO, and Tony Timpone EVP of Horror Equity Fund have signed on as Executive Producers and plan on taking this project to the next level of horror entertainment.

Eric Red says, “I’m very excited to be joining forces with Marlon Schulman, Brian Herskowitz and Tony Timpone at Horror Equity Fund for my new film, WHITE KNUCKLE. It’s a great team to be working with making a terrifying road thriller in the tradition of THE HITCHER.”

Tony Timpone says, “Very happy that the first project that I brought into Horror Equity Fund to be fast-tracked is Eric Red’s super-kinetic WHITE KNUCKLE. Eric’s previous work in the genre, THE HITCHER, NEAR DARK and BODY PARTS, were unique and terrifying. WHITE KNUCKLE will keep people off the highways like JAWS kept ’em out of the water. And HEF supporters can be part of the ride!”

My ghost flick 100 FEET makes Taste Of Cinema’s list of the great horror films of the 2000s.

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

“Eric Red is a filmmaker who understands efficient storytelling. He knows how to set a scene, how to develop a premise and characters using the sparse language of cinema. His films (Body Parts, Cohen and Tate) are lean, efficient, and almost always expertly plotted. With 100 Feet, Red took a crack at the ghost story, and in doing so addressed a nagging question that has plagued the haunted-house genre since its inception: “Why don’t these people just pack up and leave?”.

Marnie, the protagonist in 100 Feet, is under house-arrest, having murdered her abusive ex-husband in self defense. She can’t leave. Locked inside the dwelling she once shared with her former spouse, Marnie realizes that the vengeful spirit of her dead husband is still roaming the halls, fully intent on making her life a living hell. 100 Feet is a modest, intimate film that takes place entirely within one environment, and Red makes the most of his limited setting.

Every nook and cranny is explored, utilized to create a sense of menace: a dark basement, crawlspaces, a garbage disposal unit. Red’s picture is also notable for being one of the most violent haunting films in recent years. This is one seriously pissed-off spirit, possessing supernatural strength but dishing out very man-like beatings. The violence has a brutal, nasty edge, unusual for this particular sub-genre.

Acting is uniformly excellent, but the film belongs to Famke Janssen, as Marnie. Because of the close personal relationship Marnie once shared with her ethereal tormentor, the haunting here has an added layer of emotional resonance; Red’s script offers his lead plenty to work with, and she admirably rises to the challenge.

Both vulnerable and tough-as-nails, Marnie is a compelling, perfectly realized horror heroine. It’s no classic (there are a few instances of wonky CGI), but 100 Feet is a solid little ghost movie that deserves your attention.”

I love the Korean posters for 100 FEET because I was making a J Film ghost story and with the Asian text it seems like we did just that.
