He's especially interested in Slashers like I Know What You Did Last Summer and Psychological Horror like House of 1000 Corpses.

 


6 SOULS, produced by Rudy Scalese

 

Rudy Scalese is an Independent Producer who got his start on Wes Craven's Freddy Krueger film, NEW NIGHTMARE. He went on to became the Vice President of Production and Development at NALA Films where he produced films like THE BLING RING starring Emma Watson, IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH directed by Academy Award-winner Paul Haggis, and THE AIR I BREATHE starring Kevin Bacon & Brendan Fraser.

 

While working at NALA, Rudy spent his off hours immersed in horror working on the critically acclaimed documentaries GOING TO PIECES: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE SLASHER FILM, NEVER SLEEP AGAIN: THE ELM STREET LEGACY, and CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF FRIDAY THE 13TH.

 

Rudy left NALA to pursue his passion for horror, producing a number of projects for Crypt TV, an online horror platform ran by legendary producer Eli Roth (HOSTEL, CABIN FEVER) and working on the Horror-comedy GHOST TEAM ONE. He has a number of horror projects in development and is looking for more to add to his slate!

  • 6 SOULS (starrring Julianne Moore & Nate Corddry)
  • CEREMONY (starring Uma Thurman & Lee Pace)
  • TWO ON THE RUN (written by horror veteran Graham Denman)
  • CASA DE MI PADRE (starring Will Farrell & Diego Luna)
  • THE BLING RING (starring Emma Watson)
  • IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH (directed by Academy Award winner Paul Haggis)

Scalese helped run an LA Horror Film Festival and actually started his career as a PA on Wes Craven's NEW NIGHTMARE. He is returning to his roots in horror and is seeking feature screenplays for production and development. He's especially interested in Slashers like I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER and Psychological Horror like HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES.
