Horror Equity Fund fast-track Eric Red horror ‘White Knuckle’


The Horror Equity Fund have announced the latest horror-related project they have fast-tracked: White Knuckle, from one of my favourite writer/directors Eric Red, who is also the author of the action-packed novel of the same name. White Knuckle tells a gripping story of female empowerment about a woman who survives an attack by a serial killer, and then takes it upon herself to stop him from hurting anyone else.
