EXCLUSIVE: The genre-leaning production company founded as The Woodshed in 2010 by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah, and Josh C. Waller has undergone an identity change. The outfit has been rebranded SpectreVision and has also added a music division, teaming with Redbird Music Management’s Tim Husom to form SpectreVision Management. The name change reflects a wider scope as SpectreVision expands into music while continuing to build a film production portfolio.

“As our company began to expand its horizons, the name SpectreVision served to exemplify more our broadened platform: technology capturing the ineffable,” said Elijah Wood. Among SpectreVision’s current slate are horror-comedy Cooties starring Alison Pill and Rainn Wilson; Toad Road, which is set for a theatrical/VOD release this year by Artsploitation; and Iran-set vampire love story A Girl Walks Home At Night which is in post-production.

(LOS ANGELES, CA – Oct 19 2012) The Woodshed, the new horror company from partners Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller and Elijah Wood, is proud to announce two new projects.

The Woodshed will partner with Blackout Films and Random Bench on Jason Banker’s TOAD ROAD as its first “The
Woodshed Presents” endeavor. Noah, Waller and Wood discovered the film when programming Nightmare City, a horror film festival collaboration between The Cinefamily, Cinespia and The Woodshed currently unfolding around Los Angeles.

Says Wood, “Programming the festival, we viewed scores of new horror films, but TOAD ROAD leapt out of the pack with its devastating power. We knew we had to do whatever we could to make sure this special film is seen.” The Woodshed will present the US premiere in Los Angeles next Tuesday October 23rd @10PM as part of Nightmare City. TOAD ROAD received both BEST DIRECTOR & BEST ACTOR (James Davidson) awards at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal and has received praise from critics and festival audiences.

Director/writer/cinematographer Jason Banker (“My Name is Faith”) directed and produced his first narrative feature, “TOAD ROAD,” in collaboration with producers and Random Bench principals Liz Levine (“Camp Hollywood”) and Adrian Salpeter (“The French Guy”). “TOAD ROAD” blurs the line between documentary and narrative to create a disturbing portrait of drug use in youth culture wrapped around a terrifying supernatural event on New Jersey’s infamous Toad

‘The Hobbit’s Elijah Wood Wants To Take Horror Fans To The Woodshed

EXCLUSIVE: The Lord Of The Rings star Elijah Wood has partnered with Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller to form The Woodshed, an indie company that will focus on genre fare. While I tend to associate Wood with the wholesome hobbit he reprises in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit films, he played a pretty awful cannibal in Sin City, and he plays a full-on serial killer in the Franck Khalfoun-directed remake Maniac, which IFC Midnight acquired after it premiered at Cannes. Not surprisingly, Wood is a horror fanatic. “I’ve been a fan of horror and genre cinema in general since I was a child and have become increasingly passionate about the idea of there being a space in which horror films that take their subject matter and characters seriously could be produced,” he said. “What was born out of a conversation of our mutual love for the genre and what we felt was lacking in a broad sense, especially from the U.S. market, became The Woodshed.” Read More »
