Must Love Horror Los Angeles Open Casting Call

Wonder Works Films and Horrorflix Entertainment are in pre-production on the suspense horror feature film "Must Love Horror", and the producers have announced an open casting call on September 22nd for lead roles, supporting roles, and extras. Wonder Works and Horrorflix are also in pre-production on a second horror feature film titled "Sin Her Scared", which will be filmed back-to-back with "Must Love Horror". Roles in both films are up for grabs at the open casting call, where selections will be made that same day.

"Must Love Horror" centers on avid horror film fanatic Edgar who makes plans to spend Halloween night at home watching scary movies with his girlfriend Annabelle. As the two watch the horror films, the gory, macabre worlds of the movies that he loves suddenly come crashing into reality. "Must Love Horror" promises to walk the line between traditional slasher horror genre and alter-states reality of early David Cronenberg films.

Independent filmmakers Brett O. Walker and Christopher Coffel have written the original screenplay for "Must Love Horror". The two made their feature film debut in 2012 when they wrote and produced the extremely entertaining action comedy feature film "On the Count of 3" which featured the legendary International Horror and Sci-Fi Hall of Fame inductee actor Lloyd Kaufman.

He is also a feature film producer and distributor. He was recently labeled The Most Unlikely Movie Mogul by The Hollywood Reporter. His career has taken to him to all corners of the earth, and producing over 300 films in 20 years. Melaiela Rey is an very talented actress and executive producer. She recently served in the casting department on the Walt Disney Pictures feature film "The Lone Ranger', and as a location assistant on the Universal Pictures feature film "Lone Survivor".
