Three Horror Movies With Ties to Quincy, Hannibal and Edina
A couple days ago, I was in the store and noticed that Halloween stuff was already starting to go on display. One of my favorite things at Halloween time is watching all of the scary movies the different television networks schedule. I love horror movies, and I’ve watched with interest over the last few years as some independent filmmakers have chosen to come to our area and shoot their projects. Here are three horror films with local ties.
The Sound of Nothing
This zombie movie just debuted a few weeks ago at the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase. Scenes for the film were shot in the small Knox County town of Edina, Missouri. Director Chris Grega plans on taking the movie to various film festivals and horror movie festivals.
The debut of ‘Fang’ was held at Quincy’s One Restaurant and Bar in 2011. The place was packed for the premiere! It was a lot of fun to watch for recognizable landmarks, as the film was shot in Quincy.
Hannibal filmmaker Bill Houser shot his film, ‘Hidden,’ in the summer of 2009 at locations in and around Hannibal and Quincy. It has since been released on DVD, which can be purchased online. The movie is also available as a digital download for only $2.00.
