In an exciting announcement, Upstate Films in Saugerties, NY is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet the star of some of the most celebrated movies in American cinema history.

It's no secret that Hollywood has come to the Hudson Valley, with record-setting filming in 2022 bringing stacks of money and publicity to our corner of New York. While some shows like Peacock's Poker Face and Apple TV's Severance use our hometowns as a stand-in for other locations (my mechanic's shop in Accord, NY was made to look like it was in Texas in Poker Face), a new movie uses the Catskills as its actual setting.

New Movie Filmed in Saugerties, NY

The film, The Forest Hills, follows a main character who is "tormented by nightmarish visions after enduring head trauma while camping in the Catskill woods". The tense and bloody trailer alternates between beautiful New York scenery and dark scenes of violence, psychological torment, and possibly even a werewolf. It also features actor Edward Furlong (Terminator 2, American History X). You can meet him in Saugerties next month.
