DANGER WORD stars veteran film and television actor Frankie Faison (“The Wire,” “Banshee,” The Silence of the Lambs) as Grandpa Joe.  His granddaughter will be played by 12-year-old Saoirse Scott, who was shortlisted to play Rue in The Hunger Games and spent four years on ABC’s “One Life to Live.” She’s a terrific actress and a great addition to o ur cast–and she’ll make our coming-of-age story spring to life. 

Read the original story in THE LIVING DEAD 2.  You can also read the novels DEVIL’S WAKE and DOMINO FALLS, the series that grew from the original short story.

Welcome to the future of horror.
