The scene above features a naked Bill Oberst Jr and is an exclusive for all my readers courtesy of Bill who went on to say..
The scene is from the horror film DITCH. I play a man mourning his past. The director asked me to improvise a bloody bath scene and this is a capture from the scene. Although it is a full Monty scene, it is really quite tender and touching. I thought this photo captured a bit of the spirit of it. The director asked me how far I was comfortable going and I told him “Just let me play the scene honestly and film it. You can cut it anyway you want.” It felt good and it felt real and honest and I am not sorry I did it.
The film should be out next year.
Well, I think he looks very sexy!
DITCH First Stills
Fresh from post-production come the first screen captures from DITCH, a feature length horror film starring Katy Foley as a girl with a past and Bill Oberst Jr. as a man with an axe.
DITCH’s lead cast include Bill Oberst Jr., Katy Foley and Zach Silverman with a special appearance by horror cult icon Lynn Lowry (CAT PEOPLE, THEY CAME FROM WITHIN, THE CRAZIES.) Oberst says the film will be “something different in horror; a brutal film with plenty of sizzle and blood but also with a surprising amount of heart and real characters you’ll care about. I am proud of what we did and honored to have been a part of it.” The actor says a highlight for him was working for the first time with Lynn Lowry, with whom he says his character has “a bit of a sensual post-mortem moment” with.
DITCH is directed by Joe Hendrick, who is also considering helming Oberst’s 2013 demon project LORD BATEMAN, with a screenplay by horror author Daniel P. Coughlin (FARM HOUSE, LAKE DEAD) & Ryan Coughlin. Producer is Megan Waters, with gore effects by Josh Russell (DANCE OF THE DEAD, YELLOW BRICK ROAD.) The film is in post-producution aiming for a 2013 release date. Official website:
“Jenny Bilson, a high school senior, is the perfect student, a wonderful daughter to a veteran police detective and an all American Dream. But the one mistake she made, which she doesn’t even know that she made is about to haunt her in a very violent way. Throwing a high school ‘ditch party’ will end up being one HELL of a mistake as the her past returns to exact revenge on Jenny and anyone else who might get in the way.”
