Continuing Committed's spotlighting of the creative talent behind the upcoming Asylum fright-fest The Haunting of Whaley House, we turn now to the mastermind behind it all, writer/director Jose Prendes.

A true auteur, Prendes got his start more than a decade ago with the release of The Monster Man, a sci-fi/comedy flick Prendes wrote, directed and starred in, and which also boasted the talents of Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead, Creepshow 2, From Dusk Til Dawn) and Linnea Quigley (Graduation Day, Silent Night Deadly Night, The Return of the Living Dead). Prendes next turned his talents to Corpses Are Forever, which again he wrote, directed, and starred in, this time alongside the recently-passed Richard Lynch (Invasion USA, Deathsport, The Sword and the Sorcerer), the ridiculously prolific Debbie Rochon (Tromeo & Juliet, Santa Claws, Poultrygeist) and Ms. Quigley again. Then Prendes came to The Asylum.

2009 was a productive year for Mr. Prendes, in Asylum terms: that year he wrote one script - Countdown: Jerusalem off a story by David Michael Latt - and earned two story credits, one on The Terminators and the other on Haunting of Winchester House. And now, he brings his directing skills to the studio, stepping behind the camera to helm his own script for The Haunting of Whaley House. If the trailer is any indication, get ready to see a lot more from this guy. For inside looks at the production, follow their Facebook page, then queue up on July 31st when the film is released on DVD, Blu-Ray and VOD.
