The Wonderland Murders airs tonight!

Hidden amongst the rolling mountains and deep forests of the Pacific Northwest sits a breeding ground for one of the deadliest terrains in the world. Known as a serial killer’s playground, this land once dubbed “Wonderland” due to its grandeur and summer beauty, washes away into nine dreary months of rain that bring gray skies and a falling mist that drives the demons among us to kill. These are THE WONDERLAND MURDERS.

We are thrilled to announce that our latest project, The Wonderland Murders, is premiering tonight, June 5th, 2018, on Investigation Discovery (ID).

The series was shot last fall in Portland, and highlights many fantastic Northwest talent. Please tune in at 10/9c!

The Wonderland Murders

In tonight’s pilot episode, “Pacific Terror,” Detective Molly Daul works two homicides back to back, and she realizes she’s dealing with a sexual predator who targets trusting young women. Arrested before he can kill again in Seattle, his chilling confession remains with Molly to this day.

Cast Iron Studios co-sponsors Oregon Film History Mural

We are super proud to be one of the community sponsors of a new exhibit at Portland International Airport, which was unveiled on Tuesday, May 29th, 2018, and will remain in place for at least the next two years!

The new Oregon Film History Mural and Poster Exhibit showcases #OregonMade productions such as Paint Your Wagon, Stand By Me, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and more recent projects, such as Twilight, Grimm, and Wild.


The mural is located in the Portland International Airport’s south pedestrian tunnel which connects the parking garage to the terminal. It provides travelers with over 160 uninterrupted feet of mural art and posters, representing a small collection of Oregon’s rich film history, and casts a light on Oregon’s unique locations, talented industry members, and film-friendly environment.



The mural and exhibit have been created in support and collaboration with Portland International Airport and the PDX Art Program.



It was made possible through partnership with Travel Oregon, Travel Portland, and additional community members Pacific Grip & Lighting, PDXpendables, Koerner Camera Systems, BLT Productions and Hollywood Theatre.
Darren Cools illustrated and designed the mural in collaboration with Oregon Film, via the Oregon Made Creative Foundation.



We’re excited to be a part of this great project. Check it out at PDX next time you travel, and be sure to post photos to your social media accounts using the hashtag #OregonMade!

Watch the trailer here:

 

“Dean Devlin is a masterful director and does a fantastic job of slowly and mercilessly building tension scene-by-scene. The entire cast gives strong performances including Kerry Condon as Erendreich’s prisoner Katie (who delivers what is probably my favorite line of the film). David Tennant is unrelentingly intense and razor sharp as Cale Ehrendreich.” – Casey Walsh, GWW
