Hyper Violent “Muck” Set to be First Horror Film Available in 4K

The world’s biggest television manufacturers, including Samsung, LG, and Sony, used last week’s CES 2014 as a launching pad to declare that they will lead us into the 4K / Ultra HD revolution in 2014, content or not. Those who attended CES 2014 in Las Vegas were amazed by the visual experience of the latest in HD. The biggest Hollywood studios and TV programmers, Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox, Amazon, Netflix, and others, are already rushing to create content in 2014 for the breathtaking picture of new 4K / Ultra HD TVs. Ahead of the curve, however, is Steve Wolsh’s independent horror film, Muck; out in front, Muck will become one of the first titles anywhere to offer consumers the premium 4K / Ultra HD experience.
For Steve Wolsh, being independent with a limited budget would not stop him from literally seeing the bigger picture, and he knew that 4K / Ultra HD was the future. Muck is full of stunning slow motion fire, glass explosions, water combat, and rapid-paced fierce horror stunts that will jump off the screen in 2014 in both HD and Ultra HD. Muck pushes the limits of what can be done in both independent filmmaking and within the horror genre.  Steve Wolsh aims to get Muck in as many languages and territories as possible, so he partnered up with Blacklist Productions in Hollywood to have the ability to screen Muck in 4K / Ultra HD for interested parties.
Steve Wolsh and company did not waste any time to begin pre-production for Muck Offed (the Muck prequel). With the release ofMuck later this year, casting for Muck Offed is already underway. For the prequel, Steve Wolsh has promised to push his practical effects and the phrase “No CGI” into even more dangerous places. The entire original Muck cast, including Horror Legend Kane Hodder and 2012 Playboy Playmate of the Year Jaclyn Swedberg, as well as Australian hunk Lachlan Buchanan (NewcastlePretty Little Liars, and NCIS: Red), YouTube sensation Lauren Francesca, Indian beauty Puja Mohindra, Bryce Draper, Grant Alan Ouzts, Stephanie Danielson, and Laura Jacobs (Almost Human), will all be alive and well in the prequel along with the 13 new characters being added to the Muck universe. It could get messy…

THEATRICAL TRAILER FOR UPCOMING HYPER VIOLENT HORROR FLICK, “MUCK”

“Muck” Film Stars Horror Legend Kane Hodder and the 2012 Playboy Playmate of the Year

Following up on its teaser trailer that generated over 30 articles in the horror community and earned the only horror film panel at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo 2013, WithanO Productions just released the theatrical trailer for its upcoming “Muck” film.  “Muck” stars the horror legend Kane Hodder (“Friday the 13th” 7-10, “Hatchet” trilogy) and the new Scream Queen, 2012 Playboy Playmate of the Year, Jaclyn Swedberg.  The trailer will provide a more in-depth look at the film, and it can be seen at http://youtu.be/EJUg8D3VpSQ or on the film’s website, www.getthemuckout.com.
“Muck” was filmed completely on the Red Epic in Ultra HD over the course of 19 grueling all-night shoots.  Shot entirely on location in the swamps and marshes of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, this dangerous shoot was nearly impossible when you factor in first-time director Steve Wolsh produced “Muck” on a mirco-budget of $200,000.
Although an independent feature, “Muck” matches the quality of any top Hollywood film.  By using the industry’s preferred 4K HD camera, “Muck” images surpassed larger budget indie films even before DaVinci color correction.   For the record, the Red cameras used weren’t “stolen”, just “borrowed without asking” and returned with minimal water damage.  Moreover, after Universal Studios viewed the first cut of the film, the powerhouse agreed to mix “Muck” for theatre surround sound on the Universal lot.

Besides the Horror Legend and Playmate of the Year, “Muck” features an amazing cast of up-and-coming actors, led by Australian hunk Lachlan Buchanan (“Newcastle”, “Pretty Little Liars”, and “NCIS: Red”) and Indian beauty Puja

Mohindra.  Very few Hollywood films feature strong lead roles for Indian actresses, and this is a first for any American horror film, a breakout role for Mohindra.
The “Muck” production did not make it easy on the actors, though.  SAG expressed concern during production of this film, stating, “‘Muck’ is, without a doubt, one of the top 5 most violent scripts we have ever seen come through.”  With concern from SAG, horror fans can rejoice about stunts in the upcoming film:  in-water fighting, full-body fire burns, high-impact falls, and even a naked woman thrown through glass.
