The indie horror-thriller THE HEADMISTRESS hits VOD streaming platforms today. Produced by Three Tortured Minds and Dusty Horse Productions and distributed by Indican Pictures, THE HEADMISTRESS enjoyed a theatrical run in select theaters earlier this month and won the Audience Award for Best Feature Film at the 2022 Milwaukee Twisted Dreams Film Festival.
“We’re so proud of THE HEADMISTRESS and excited that horror fans all over now have the chance to see it!” said the film’s producers, Glenn Chung, Christopher A. Micklos, and Jay Sapiro.
In THE HEADMISTRESS, a debt-ridden teacher gets a lucky break when she inherits an abandoned lakefront inn, but when she takes a group of potential buyers to visit the property, they discover a dark, sinister secret that threatens them all…a malignant supernatural force determined to keep them there forever!
The film’s ensemble cast is led by Chicago-based actress Katherine Bellantone, and also includes Tom Dacey Carr, Hunter O’Harrow, Thomas J. McCarthy, Ayden Skye, DeChantel Kosmatka, David Sapiro, and Valerie Meachum.
THE HEADMISTRESS was shot at a decommissioned nunnery in Oconomowoc, WI. Members of the cast and crew lived together in the abandoned nunnery for nearly two weeks during production, beginning on a Friday the 13th in September 2019.
“Arriving at this creepy, isolated nunnery on a quiet lake in the dead of night on Friday the 13th and then bunking down for eleven nights with a group of virtual strangers was just about the perfect way to kick off production on an indie horror film!” the filmmakers noted.
THE HEADMISTRESS is the second feature from Three Tortured Minds. Critics called their first film, THE NURSERY, “chilling”, “awesome”, “creepy as hell”, “a real surprise”, and “one of the best horror films to come out of 2018”.
