We put up the poster art for the Pendulum Pictures movie DESOLATION. Fangoria got the
scoop on the upcoming horror feature written and to be directed by Krist Rufty-

“DESOLATION came about after a couple of my other scripts weren’t generating any
Rufty told Fangoria. “I had just begun writing DESOLATION and sent part of the
script to Trent, just to get his input, and his enthusiasm gave me the drive to tweak it
and make it better. I wanted to write a character for Trent that he could really do some
damage with. The role of Douglas Hinson will give him the opportunity to show another
side of himself.

But wait, theres more!

“I’ve explored a lot of fears in the writing of DESOLATION: the loss of a child, the loss of a
spouse, the dangers of alcoholism,” Rufty continues. “And chainsaws…I want to make
chainsaws scary again. I want to evoke the feeling of the horror films of the ’70s and
early ’80s. I don’t want to duplicate those movies, but I want to recreate the intensity
they had.”
