Ogre Vents Frustration on Director Cary Hill
Kevin 'ohGr' Ogilvie vents his frustration with director Cary Hill on the set of Scream Park! (NSFW: language)
Skinny Puppy's Kevin "Ogre" Ogilvie has officially joined the cast of Scream Park! (Yes, we announced his involvement back in 8/11, but he's officially signed on now!)
Ogre, whose films include REPO: The Genetic Opera, 2,001 Maniacs: Field of Screams, and the releasing Devil's Carnival (directed by Saw II's Darren Lynn Bousman), continues his trend of dark, masked roles and is playing the lead slasher in the film.
Ogre is a founding member of the 80s industrial band Skinny Puppy,which has contributed to various Hollywood films in the past.
Ogre's casting brings a second 80s icon to the retro horror film, joining Hellraiser's Doug Bradley.

We've put together a conceptual trailer for the film here.
It's been designed to capture our intended look and feel of the film, as well as showcase our dear friend Doug Bradley in his role as "Mr. Hyde." It's also his voice playing over the footage.
We made this using the single sequence shot so far in addition to location scouting footage, stock footage, and anything else we could can our hands on. It's not a final product per se, but it definitely gets the feel of the movie across.
Kailey Marie Harris is the latest to join the cast of Scream Park. She'll be taking on the role of Carlee, one of several employees trapped in the park after hours.
Kailey is an East Coast model and this her first foray into film.
Nicole is currently a student at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and her recent work includes starring in the music video for Lovebettie's "Dirty Mary." She is also a freelance model in the Pittsburgh area.
Steve is no stranger to horror films, with his latest effort being The Slasher Hunter, which he wrote and directed, as well as starred. An independent film auteur, his other horror works include Basic Slaughter and a series of shorts made with his company "Dark Mullet Cinema."
Alicia has appeared in several films from Lifeline Pictures, including the recent "A Bitter Lullaby". Her latest role was "Kelly" in Enter the Zombie 3D, a Pittsburgh-based production mixing horror and comedy. She's also a regular participant in Pittsburgh's 48 hour film project.
Dean is a theater veteran, playing the on-stage role of "Charlie" in "Charlie & The Chocolate Factory" and the titular role in a presentation of "Pinocchio." His most recent foray in front of the camera was for a short zombie film "Spineview."
The lovely Wendy Wygant has been cast to play the lead role of Jennifer Cornell in Scream Park. Very much the girl next door, Jennifer is of the Nancy Thompson/Laurie Strode mold, an innocent girl forced to go face-to-mask with a pair of killers.
Wendy is a university-trained actress who recently made her cinema debut in 2010's Murder Machine!, which was recently selected to open the Late Night Horror Film Festival. She is also a veteran of the stage, appearing in productions of Brigadoon, Clue, and Shakespeare's The Tempest.
Scream Park is proud to welcome aboard Doug Bradley! Mr. Bradley is making a walk-on cameo in a one-day shoot this fall for our film as the evil owner of the theme park.
Many of us involved with Scream Park were mere pups in high school when Clive Barker's 'Hellraiser' hit the big screen. We remember when we first saw the Cenobites and were stunned by their design and the mythology that followed in the sequels.
Mr. Bradley is contributing his time and incredible talent to us as a favor and we couldn't be more grateful!

We’ve also released our new look website, designed by the wicked crew over at Rough Ride Creations. We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Feel free to post your thoughts about the new site!
We’ve whittled down over 300 entries for casting (and they keep coming in!) to about 10% of that. Those folks have submitted video auditions that we’re currently reviewing and taking notes. The plan is to have an announced cast by late September for all to see. Stay tuned!
