The Shining's Wendy Torrance, actress Shelia Vizcaino will play the role of Rico's mother and inner voice. Chiko Mendez portrays Rico as a man suffering from mental and emotional distress. The Forest Hills is an indie horror-thriller that tells the story of Rico, who starts having nightmarish visions after suffering a head injury while camping in the Catskill Mountains.

"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," Goldberg said. "Shelley contributed to The Shining being an absolute masterpiece by giving her all and performing in a way that showcased the fear and horror of a mother in isolation."

Check back soon for an official trailer and release date.
