HARRISVILLE, W.Va. -- Actress, producer and director Guisela Moro says a visit to West Virginia to buy a puppy inspired her to make a movie in the state.
Filming on Newfoundland Films' "Hollow Creek" wraps up Thursday in Cairo. The film was shot in Ritchie and Wyoming counties.
Moro tells The Parkersburg News and Sentinel that she came to Wyoming County from Washington, D.C., to buy a Newfoundland puppy. She fell in love with the scenery and decided to write a movie and film it in the state.
Moro describes "Hollow Creek" as a "Stephen King-style thriller."
The film is expected to release in the fall. Moro says special screenings will be held in locations where filming occurred.
