Inspired/Based on the song 'Hellbilly58' by the Band Blazing Haley from their album 'sleeper'. When the director asked the songwriter and Blazing Haley front man Matt Armor for the rights to use the song, He was so pleased that he asked for a role. He can be seen playing 'Hank' the luckless lumberjack. Matt says that he always thought the song should be a horror movie and had that in mind when writing the lyrics.
The Film has been in development since September 2006.
