Horror icon Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, Suitable Flesh) and more join Faith Based actor Luke Barnett in the creepy thriller Teacher’s Pet.
The upcoming thriller centers on “a malevolent new high school teacher with a sinister past who becomes disturbingly fixated on a brilliant female student. As he unveils his true sociopathic nature, the young woman is forced to navigate a treacherous battle of wits to survive high school.”
A perfect recipe for intense, skin-crawling thrills.
Sara Tomko (“Resident Alien”), Drew Powell (“Gotham”), newcomer Michelle Torian, Kevin Makely (“Young Rock”), Clayton Royal Johnson (“Stranger Things”), Alexe-Anne Godin, Richard Handley (The Black String), and Alexis DawTyne have also joined the cast alongside Crampton and Barnett.
Teacher’s Pet is written and directed by Noam Kroll.
The official logline for Teacher’s Pet follows “a gifted high school senior (Torian) whose charismatic new teacher (Barnett) offers an escape from her turbulent life, but as the year progresses, it quickly becomes apparent his help comes with a price.”
Launch Releasing’s founder and CEO, Sheldon Brigman, produces Teacher’s Pet with Handley, Kroll, Kayli Fortun, and Brian Hanson. Barnett, Brigman, Kelby Thwaits, and Charles Bunce are executive producers. Launch Releasing financed, produced, and will distribute the indie that just wrapped production. The project signed a SAG-AFTRA interim agreement just before the Hollywood actors’ strike ended.
“We’re so excited that Luke is bringing his considerable creative talents to our film and team. We’ve been blown away by Luke’s approach to this complex character and can’t wait to bring this multi-layered and powerful thriller to audiences,” Brigman previously told THR about Barnett’s sinister turn.
Barnett most recently produced the intense thriller Your Lucky Day, which starred the late Angus Cloud.
No character details have been revealed as of yet for Barbara Crampton, but the horror mainstay most recently starred in Suitable Flesh, Onyx the Fortuitous and the Talisman of Souls, and the upcoming Blackout.
