Thursday, November 29, 2012
The old Missouri State Penitentiary is host to new thrills this week as a production crew and cast gets ready to wrap up shooting a fictional suspense-thriller film.
The film, “Apparitional,” has been shooting at MSP all week and filming is expected to wrap up by the end of the week. According to a release, the movie tells the story of a group of ghost hunters who find a haunted location with a grisly past that proves to be more than they bargained for.
Director Andrew P. Jones, who also wrote and produces the film, chose Jefferson City as his location after seeing the historic prison, and said the local community has helped make the whole process enjoyable.
