"Camp is the Word" says writer/producer Jackie Linder Olson of the upcoming comedy-horror film, The Caretaker, that caught the eyes of Jennifer Tilly, Judd Nelson and a fantastic group of teenage up-and-comers.
The Caretaker follows a group of teenage boys out to give their girlfriends a good scare on Halloween. They head to an abandoned house in a grapefruit orchard where they are stalked by a real life urban legend, known as 'The Caretaker.'
Judd Nelson delivers a disarmingly creepy performance as an overprotective father. The teenagers' outlandish teacher, played by Ms. Tilly, is obsessed with getting famous by sleeping with a student. "We took a current trend that we found both tragic and disturbing and put it in the forefront of our film," says director Bryce Fridrik Olson. "No one could do a better job as this character than the sexy and talented Jennifer Tilly. We were lucky to have her and Judd."
"It's refreshing to be working on a fun genre picture with good scares, a lot of laughs and not too much gore," says Producer Allison Wilke. "The audience is going to love it."
The Caretaker stars Jennifer Tilly, Judd Nelson, Jonathan Breck (Jeepers Creepers), Jennifer Freeman (You Got Served), Andrew St. John, James Immekus, Diego Torres and Kira Verrastro. The project is currently in post production with original music being composed by Jim Lang (John Carpenter's Body Bags, In The Mouth Of Madness). It is produced by Jackie Olson, Brynn McQuade and Allison Wilke, written by Jackie Linder Olson, and directed by Bryce Fridrik Olson.
