From first-time filmmaker Dom Frank comes The Church, a film about revelation and vengeance within a Philadelphia-area Baptist church. The movie dives deep into the community and the dark past of the clergy, shedding light on those who have been wronged by those in power within the church over the last few centuries. Filmed on location in Philadelphia’s First Corinthian Baptist Church, The Church boasts a cast of well-known stars, especially in the world of horror.

The line-up includes Clint Howard (Solo: A Star Wars Story, Arrested Development, Apollo 13), Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects, 3 From Hell), Ashley C. Williams (Julia, The Human Centipede), Lisa Wilcox (A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise), Keith Stallworth (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Step Up 3D), and former pro wrestler Vito LoGrasso. Moseley plays the role of Pastor James, who seeks to preserve his family’s legacy within the church despite its dark history finally coming to light.

Starting on October 5th, The Church will be hitting the big screen in select theaters for a minimum of one week. Markets include Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Bernardino, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, New York/Newark, Orlando, Philadelphia, Raleigh, N.C., and San Francisco.

Produced through and distributed by Hard Floor Entertainment, The Church was written and directed by Dom Frank, who also produced the movie alongside Paul Irwin and Matthew Nadu. In addition, Frank joined Gia Aaron and Josh Aaron in serving as executive producers for the title. If you are in one of the above markets, check your local theaters to see if it’s playing near you.
