Production is set to officially end on November 11th and the film will move into post. In the run up to the end date, the production team will be posting special wrap photos of all cast and crew. These photos will serve as a tribute to the horror content of the film by portraying each team member as “dead.” Each cast and crew member underwent professional makeup treatments for the photographs courtesy of the key makeup artist, Katie Triplett. Wrap photos will be released once a day on the Lake Runs Red social media channels starting November 2nd to November 10th. In a quote from Jeff Fuller, executive producer.

“As we get to the finish line, we’re doing something fun with wrap photos on our social media. In celebration of our horror roots, we’ll be publishing a wrap photo for each cast and crew member dressed in full horror/death makeup. On set, we jokingly called them “dead hooker photos.” Our awesome makeup artist Katie has done a remarkable job on the applications. It’s a really unique way to say goodbye and thank you to our amazing cast and crew,” said Jeff Fuller, executive producer.

The first teaser video has even been released.
