Heartland students earn experience working on horror movie

NEW HAMBURG, MO (KFVS) - Filming is underway in New Hamburg, Missouri for a new horror movie.

The producer and writer lives in L.A., but grew up in the southeast Missouri.

So when he had the idea for a film, naturally this was the ideal setting.

It's about a little girl who gets possessed and a house on Highway 234 fits the bill for creepy location.

Producer David Dittlinger said they lucked into it, but it's just what they had in mind.

For some lucky Southeast Missouri State University and Southern Illinois University students this is a way to get real world experience in the film industry.

"Always slower than you think it's going to be, but I think astoundingly well," said producer and writer David Dittlinger. "The footage is wonderful. The help that we've gotten from SEMO and SIU interns have done a wonderful job and helped us a lot. Townspeople have brought food by. Its been wonderful."

The movie,  "Abbey Grace," will be out this time next year.

The producer said you'll be able to buy it on Amazon and iTunes.
