Hooks and Taylor Entertainment operation is now shooting a horror movie, in the Delta town of Hood, of all places…. Taylor and company have transformed a former pear canning plant into a top-flight sound stage. Sets throughout the building represent a mansion living room, a bedroom, a kitchen.
Granted, the movie sounds pretty errrgh, but I’m still rather inexplicably stoked about this. Part of it probably is that I loves me some Delta, with the mandatory CCR on the radio, criss-crossing the drawbridges and stopping for soda pop at a roadside market. I am not optimistic that Sacto will become the new Hollywood, but am I gonna want to rent this movie more because it’s homegrown than I would if it were just mixed in with the other horror movies at my local Hollywood video? Okay, probably not. But hey, kudos to local artists!
