Horror Short: Casting Call


Black Dust Films, in association with Restless Chimp Films, is in pre-production of a horror short film for the festival circuit. Filming will take place in May (12th to 14th), over three days in Glasgow.

Cast are sought for this micro-budget production. All roles are paid at non-Equity rates.


Inner Devils is about the battle for Ryan’s soul fought by Father Luca Diaz, a newly ordained priest and cousin to Ryan’s wife, Elena, and brother-in-law, Alex. The demon’s knowledge of a dark secret in Luca’s past threatens to tear the family apart.


  • Elena (lead role): Mediterranean; 30s; strong; wife to Ryan; she has been at Ryan’s side throughout his difficulties. Contacting Father Diaz has been a last resort.
  • Alex (lead role): Mediterranean; 30s; brother of Elena; runs a video production business with Ryan – they both agreed to film the process of Ryan’s treatment.
  • Ana (supporting role): Any appearance; mid to late 20s; ex-girlfriend of Alex; appears in two scenes.

The roles of Father Luca Diaz and Ryan have already been cast.

All roles are emotionally demanding, and as such will require actors with comparable experience.


The project is privately, and modestly, funded by the writer/director, and therefore fees are below Equity rates. Travel expenses within Glasgow will be covered.
