*Blackfilmandtv.com has exclusively learned that director Deon Taylor (The Intruder, Black & Blue) recently completed a new film centered on COVID-19 called “Don’t Fear.”
Starring Power’s Joseph Sikora, Clifford “TIP” Harris, Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor, Terrence J., Ruby Modine, Annie Ilonzeh, Iddo Goldberg, and Jessica Allain, the film was written and shot during the pandemic crisis.
Filmed inside Strawberry Lodge, a ski resort by South Lake Tahoe, and according to the early behind-the-scenes video below, the thriller centers on a group of people who are locked in at the lodge during the pandemic crisis. Having to cope with each other, while keeping their distance and maintaining of level of sanity is a test that no one wants to fail.
While it may not be a supernatural horror film like M. Night Shyamalan’s 2008 film Devil, where a group of people were stuck inside an elevator and had to figure a way out before they killed each other, “Don’t Fear” has that feel. This time, there is more space in a lodge but the threat of a virus being contagious can make the characters lose their wits.
Taylor is no stranger to this genre, having done Dead Tone, Chainletter, and the horror comedy Meet The Blacks, a spook on The Purge.
