ORANGE COUNTY, Va. (NEWSPLEX) -- A man from Orange County just finished filming his first-ever horror film.
The movie is called the Curse of the Slasher Nurse, where friends go to a cabin in the woods and get killed by a crazy nurse one-by-one.
The director, Dave Kerr, says today's horror movies are dry and he wanted to bring back the feel of the classics from the 1980s like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and Halloween.
He shot the film at various locations across Orange County, and is editing it right from his home.
He says shooting the movie was difficult, and he often questioned himself on why he decided to take on a new role.
"There are several times where I had to apologize to everyone in the film," said Kerr. "At certain points you get frustrated and overwhelmed." "On the first day, I left asking myself why did I get into this?"
The actors in the movie consist of people from all over Orange County, including the woman who plays the slasher nurse.
She says taking on a scary role was a challenge.
"I had to do a lot of studying from Jason, Michael Myers and the killers that have the masks on that use more body language than talking," said Kea Raines, actress.
Kerr shared the trailer of the movie which you can find in the Related Links box.
The movie is scheduled to premiere on Halloween.
