‘Join the cult or fight to survive.’
Inverted is a 2022 American horror film about a satanic cult that kidnaps people for the Holy War against the second coming of Christ.
Directed and co-produced by Tristan Clay (Red Eye; shorts: Sin; Desolate and Karma) from a screenplay co-written with co-producer Destinie Orndoff. Also produced by David Bellingham, Mem Ferda and Roman Jossart.
The Deranged Minds Entertainment production stars Susan Lanier (The Hills Have Eyes 1977), Maria Olsen, Jennifer Nangle and Destinie Orndoff (Red Eye).
“Inverted is a psychedelic, grindhouse-esque slay-fest that feels like it would be the offspring of Rosemary’s Baby and The Lord’s of Salem.”
Inverted is an original story by Orndoff with the other half of Deranged Minds (Tristan Clay) directing. Although the duo had zero prior experience in filmmaking when diving head first into their first horror feature in 2016, they say their passion was the fuel they needed to get over every roadblock that came their way as 18-year-olds directing a crew and cast nearly twice their age.
Deranged Minds added, “Our first feature felt like we jumped into water we couldn’t touch and then we tried our best to get to the other side. Making horror films has always been something we’ve wanted to do since we were kids so that urge and pure passion lit a fire under us that is impossible to extinguish. We self-taught ourselves everything we needed to know and just did it.”
Limited tickets are currently available for the world premiere of Inverted. Immerse yourself in a macabre evening with the cast, crew, and creators in attendance. Screening at the historic Esquire Theater in Cincinnati, OH on Saturday, July 30th at 7:00 pm. Tickets are available here
