ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. – A movie thriller focusing on ghosts and the supernatural is currently being shot in Alamance County.
“Nevermore” is in about its third week of being filmed in Graham after shooting started on February 7. Crews shot a car crash on Elm Street and Marshall in downtown Graham on Sunday.
The film takes place in the fictional town of Cedar Rock Falls, North Carolina. It focuses on a man who decided to move his wife and 7-year-old to the family’s estate home.
The family starts to experience strange paranormal occurrences. The house is haunted by the ghostly apparitions of seven dead children.
Producer Starr Jones said the movie was actually written to depict a town in Alamance County. He said North Carolina has many great resources and shooting locations for a movie.
“We always like being in our hometown and we’ve actually put a production company together to shoot movies here in North Carolina,” he said.
The movie stars former “Days of Our Lives” actor Jason Cook and “Aliens” co-star Lance Henriksen.
Elon native William Pifer said he is having a blast in his first film as Cook’s son.
“He sees ghosts and he’s going around the room playing with them,” he said of his role.
The movie seems to be exciting for Graham residents. It is expected to be released sometime next year.
“I grew up in the Graham area and it’s really interesting that they’re filming a movie here,” said Graham resident Jane Mciver.
