Casting announced for Mike Mendez’s latest

Oscar nominee Bruce Dern (“The Burbs”, “Twixt”, “The Haunting”) will join Richard Grieco (“Booker”, “If Looks Could Kill”) in a new horror-thriller.

Also starring Michael Paré, Sofia Nistratova, Nick Davi, and Mike Mendez, “The Devil’s Trap” is said to be set in a big city hospital where the staff and patients find themselves stalked by some sort of demonic presence.

Mendez directs. Michael Caissie scripted from a story by Alexander Nistratov.

The plot, per Deadline : In the quiet nighttime corridors and patient rooms of a city hospital, Abigail (Nistratova) consoles her traumatized brother, Billy (Davi) who is now a paraplegic. Billy suffers from horrible nightmares in which he revisits his childhood, where we meet his alcoholic and violent father. Sharing Billy’s hospital room is a dying man, Mr. Cohen (Dern) who seems to know everything about Billy and Abigail. There’s also another horrific presence roaming in the hospital terrifying patients and staff alike. Paré portrays Father Gestas. Grieco is the lovestruck hospital orderly who worships his nurse g.f. Diana. Their romantic interludes in dark corners of the hospital make his job much easier.
