PHOENIXVILLE, Pennsylvania (WPVI) — A Chester County farmer is now a filmmaker.
His horror film Hayride to Hell celebrated its world premiere in Phoenixville on Wednesday evening.
The film was co-written and co-produced by Bob Lange, owner of Sugartown Strawberries in Malvern.
He used all 200 acres as film sets to save and preserve his family treasure.
“This farm has belonged to my family since 1896,” says Lange. “One of the reasons why, and where my passion came from, was that I wanted to try to make a successful film that could generate revenue that could potentially be put into a foundation for the farm.”
Lange also wrote a role for himself, Frankenfarmer, and a role for his bride-to-be, Kristina Chadwick.
They wrote the film during the pandemic and brought Malvern director Dan Lantz on board.
“This whole movie is based on the haunted places they did in the ’90s,” Lantz explains. “Like all haunted places, what if they were real? What if they went horribly wrong?
Hayride to Hell debuted at the Colonial Theater in Phoenixville. It stars horror legends Bill Moseley and Kane Hodder.
Expect to see the film in wide release soon.
