Casting for Short Horror Film “Valerie” – Female Lead/Supp. Male – Seattle, WA

Seattle, WA Casting Calls:
Exit A Productions and Tackett Films are holding auditions for “Valerie”, a short horror film which aims to subvert the horror genre and win at horror festivals around the nation/internationally. This is a film that is aiming for a visceral experience that is closer to reality than your stereotypical horror movie, avoiding all of the tired genre cliches. We are looking to truly affect the audience and draw out deeper emotions than most horror films aim to.

Synopsis: The story follows a young man that visits a bar in the early afternoon, after a day of work. There he meets “Valerie” and proceeds to follow her back to her home, where he imagines physical relations will occur. However, he has gone home with the wrong woman. Valerie is a psychopath, and he has become her new victim. After the initial incident he awakens to find himself restrained in her basement. Things go from bad to worse as the evening progresses, the film ending with his one and only chance at escaping the house.

The casting call will take place at the Burien Public Library on Sunday September 5th.

The film will shoot over two consecutive weekends in September, the 18th,19th and 25th, 26th.

We are casting two roles:

1: The titular character “Valerie”: Female age 25-35.
We are flexible with age if the role could be pulled off properly. We are also very flexible with the look of this character. The most important thing from an actress filling this role will be her ability to “get a little dark”, as one would imagine when playing the role of a psychopath. We need this actor to pull of a certain quality that will take some dedication/ willingness to explore the darker sides of the human psyche.

2: Valerie’s unnamed husband: A Large Male Age 25-45

This role could be explained as someone who looks like he could be a part of the hells angels. The bigger the better. In the script this characters physical appearance is intimidating to say the least. While this character doesn’t actually have on screen lines in the film (There are moments where he can be heard shouting through the walls), his physical presence plays a huge part of the film.

Interested parties please send your resume (w/ head-shot preferred). We will then schedule you a time and get back to you with sides. If you have any questions we will be glad to answer them.

Thanks and good luck!

Producer/Director
