LOS ANGELES, CA (Dakota News Now) - Nick Simon grew up in Sioux Falls but moved to Los Angeles several years ago to pursue a career in film. He’s most known for making horror films, like “The Girl in the Photographs.”

During quarantine in 2020, he and a co-writer, Luke Baines, decided to write a film. It started out small, then turned into something much bigger. Simon directed and co-wrote the film. For the first time, he was also a producer on a film. It’s called “Untitled Horror Film.”

It’s about several actors who are out of work after their show got canceled and their journey to making their own horror movie that one of them wrote on their own.

The movie will premiere Saturday at 3:00 PM central time virtually. It costs $15 to get the link online. It will also be available starting Tuesday to watch on streaming services, like Amazon and iTunes.
