From the city that brought us George Romero, Tom Savini, and the birthplace of the modern zombie film comes a production company ready to scare the hell out of you.
Founded in 2015 by Beaver County native Joshua D. Maley, Grimm Sleeper Productions aspires to give you more than a handful of empty jump scares.
"There's something deeply personal about confronting our fears head-on," Maley says. "Horror films give us the chance to face our fears in relative safety. They teach us how to process and deal with the things that terrify us, so that we can more effectively deal with practical, everyday fears."
But in a post-Scream world, where horror tropes have become so well-known and widely parodied, what is the path forward? "The world has changed," Maley explains. "It's a much scarier place than it used to be. The everyday images we're bombarded with by the media are frightening on a whole other level. Our horror stories have to evolve, too. What we tell, and how we tell it. People need a connection. It needs to be personal. There needs to be emotional investment. That's where, I hope, GRIMM SLEEPER PRODUCTIONS can step in and fill the gap."
From our award-winning short film, 415, to our upcoming debut feature film, the psychological horror film, Waltz, our hope is to tap in to those fears through well-written, well-realized characters and a classical approach to filmmaking and storytelling. Our films and screenplays have been selected and featured at film festivals all over the country, form Pittsburgh, PA to Los Angeles, California.
We invite you to join us on this these horrifying journeys of discovery - if you think you can handle it!
