Some cool news coming out of Oklahoma today, where a spate of horror movies (HELLRAISER: JUDGMENT, CHILDREN OF THE CORN: RUNAWAY) recently called their home of late. THE HARVESTERS, the Kickstarter-funded picture that claims our own James "Jimmy O" Oster as one of its producers, commenced production in the Sooner State on Monday, April 4th.
Production is expected to last until April 24th and will take place exclusively in Oklahoma in towns such as Tuttle, Newcastle, Purcell, Macomb, and director Nick Sanford’s hometown of Moore.
Nick Sanford once flooded a room in his parents’ house while remaking James Cameron’s Titanic. As a child with access to video cameras, he poured his energy into epics. Even in the days of VHS tapes, there was no such thing as a small picture in Sanford’s world.
When it was announced last month that pre-production had begun on writer/director Nick Sanford's mystery/horror film THE HARVESTERS, January 18th was mentioned as a very important date for the project. The date when its crowdfunding campaign would go live on Kickstarter. That month-long campaign is now underway, with the filmmakers seeking to raise $32,835, which will go toward paying the cast and crew and insuring the production.
When it comes to the horror genre, nobody is more scare savvy than Joblo.com and Arrow in the Head journalist James "Jimmy O" Oster. Being a lifelong genre fan and overall blood and guts movie geek, Oster has a keen eye for spotting fantastic new mayhem driven material. Thus why we’re super excited about his first foray into the producing horror films ala the new Halloween themed fright flick entitled "The Harvesters."
A few weeks ago, we brought you the killer news that JoBlo/Arrow in the Head writer James "Jimmy O" Oster was involved with the horror flick The Harvesters, on which he's serving as a producer.

That's right, you can check out the eerie way THE HARVESTERS opens right now, complete with an intro from director Nick Sanford.
