WGA Registration # 1919814

Background: “Casting the Runes” is Felice Picano’s adaptation of a classic horror story by M.R.James published in 1914. This new version transposes the action from England to 1886 Northampton, Massachusetts and its surroundings. The period and place are that of sunny, perfect picture-postcard America–of ice cream parlors and horse-drawn fire-trucks,of Sunday band stand concerts and steam locomotives, of Temperance meetings and children playing with hoops. Science is just beginning and evil lurks behind the banana-curled school girls and Huck Finn boys.
