Campana Pictures and Random Acts are proud to announce VIRAL, a premiere horror film starring Shannon Leigh Webber (Scary Stories: Dark Web), Jessica Arden Napier (Stranger Things, Halloween Kills), and Jeff Award winner Deanna Reed Foster (Shining Girls, Widows). Advanced screenings throughout Chicago begin October 4 at the Music Box Theater.
When her granddaughter goes missing, Jane (Jeff Award-winner Janet Ulrich Brooks) hires a small team to investigate. As more creators disappear, Shannon (Shannon Leigh Webber) and her friends desperately search for answers, confronting their own dark secrets along with an evil force.
Also included in the film are real-life creators Elliot Simmons (@ElliotSimms) and Jillian Gilman (@Zombae.Undead) with a combined following of nearly 10 million. VIRAL marks Jessica Arden Napier's first appearance on screen since her celebrated turns in Stranger Things 4 and Halloween Kills.
Writer Crystal Skillman (Marvel, Adventure Time) returns after collaborating on Scary Stories: Dark Web, which features a cameo from Tony Todd (Candyman). FullTV states the "stellar group of actors...keeps the audience in their chair." Fred's Horror Corner called it 'believable mix of Host and VHS" and the Chicago Reader says it sends "the good kind of creepy shiver down your spine."
Other collaborators include Creepy Duck Design (behind posters for recent smash-hits Scream, The Black Phone, and Mandy) and Julane Sullivan with All Dressed Up Costumes. The thrilling climax takes place inside the haunted Campana Factory, now on the National Registry of Historic Places. Additional filming took place in Chicago, New York, and Atlanta.
The expansive ensemble includes Debbie Banos, Daria Koon, Aaron Holland, Marianna Gallegos, Steffen Garcia, Daryn Harrell, Kelsey Jaffer, Kevin O'Connell, Rachel Rodewald, Ashlyn Seehafer, Faiz Siddique, Brian Yager, and more to be announced.
