Shelley Duvall Returns to Acting in ‘The Forest Hills’

by | Oct 31, 2022

Scott Goldberg‘s upcoming werewolf movie, The Forest Hills , has already bagged a interesting cast with Edward Furlong (Terminator 2) and Dee Wallace (The Howling), and now it takes it’s wildest stake yet, with the announcement that Shelley Duvall (The Shining) is also joining the cast. Duvall has been out of the industry for over 20 years, so it’s an amazing announcement to hear about her return to acting.

Deadline dug up the news over the weekend, noting that DuVall is an actress, writer and producer known for her collaborations with everyone from Robert Altman and Woody Allen to Stanley Kubrick, Terry Gilliam and Steven Soderbergh. But her biggest accolade is also her worst experience in film, starring alongside Jack Nicholson is Stanley Kubrick adaption of The Shining. Back in 202, Duvall told The Hollywood Reporter:

“After a while, your body rebels. It says: ‘Stop doing this to me. I don’t want to cry every day.’ And sometimes just that thought alone would make me cry. To wake up on a Monday morning, so early, and realize that you had to cry all day because it was scheduled — I would just start crying.”

The Forest Hills producer Scott Hansen said:

We are huge fans of The Shining and it’s honestly one of my favorite horror movies of all time, up there with John Carpenter’s Halloween and George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead with the dark tones they delivered in their movies, along with perfect scores and elements that make them my personal favorites,” said Goldberg. “Shelley contributed to The Shining being an absolute masterpiece by giving her all, and performing in a way that really showcased the fear and horror of a mother in isolation.

The Forest Hills follows a disturbed man who is tormented by nightmarish visions, after enduring head trauma while camping in the Catskill Mountains. The film will go old school for the special effects, utilizing practical effects rather than CGI, making this a film to watch out for. 

Duvall return to film and horror is truly something to be celebrated.
