Many people know actor filmmaker DJ Perry from a spectrum of film projects from crime drama (“An Ordinary Killer”) to historic biblical (“Book of Ruth, Journey of Faith”) but he is well known for his work in the horror genre. Having started with the lackluster creature feature “In the Woods” he’s remained true to his fans of this genre. He has quite a line-up of projects to satisfy the horror fans.
In talks for distribution now is the horror/thriller “Renovation” which just recently had its premiere in Yuma, AZ and stars Lana Wood and Johnny Dark with DJ Perry in a tale of stolen money and murder in the old Hotel Del Sol.
“Locked in a Room” is a dark mystery film in post-production that will premiere in Detroit just before Halloween. DJ Perry plays a character known only as “Mr. Creepy” so that should give some insight to the film’s tone. The film also co-stars Robert Miano, Rae’Ven Larrymore Kelly and Perry’s “Karma, Crime, Passion, Reincarnation” co-star Carlucci Weyant.
Filming has just been completed on the Philippine ghost story “Darkest Night” and is set for a premiere and theater run in Asian this fall. Negotiations are underway to bring this film to the US and other western territories in late 2011. The film has a Christmas theme and promises to bring the merry gift of gore.
On the development front DJ Perry’s name appears on Jon Moody’s cast list for his upcoming “Scream Queen Campfire”. He is also still on track to star as Rob Locksley in director Jon Regan’s “Sherwood Horror”. Additionally paperwork has been signed with Perry’s Collective Development Inc. to have filmmaker/magician Stuart MacDonald direct “Secondary Heroes,” a comedic horror film about a pair of sidekicks trying to save the world from evil. The last exciting news is that a prequel to the sleeper hit “The 8th Plague” may soon be underway with DJ Perry reprising his “Mason” character in a script entitled “Soul Eater”. It is rumored that it will be directed by actor/director Terry Jernigan who will also reprise his role as “Buck” from the original film.
With an impressive list of projects rolling down the line it is safe to say that DJ Perry has not and will not turn his back on the genre that gave him his start.
