Special Thanks to Captured Dimensions in Frisco, TX for 3D Scanning of KLAGGER FX.
For the new feature-film, the creators of KLAGGER felt a new
and far more gruesome design concept would be needed to
bring the horrific tragedy of Joseph Klagger to cinematic life.
Chris Richard Hanson is an amazing talent and a veteran of special effects work and make-up artistry. Chris has worked on several major motion pictures including UNDERWORLD, HELLBOY, and David Lynch's LOST HIGHWAY to name a few. The creators of KLAGGER are very excited to have Chris as a part of the team. His contribution to the new KLAGGER design and his expertise in anatomical creations is immeasurable.
The KLAGGER production team has negotiated with American Electric Power (AEP) to use the
Historic West Texas Utilities Power Plant, while filming the feature version of KLAGGER. This visually alluring power plant was built in Abilene, Texas in the early 1920's and has been out of operation for more than a decade. The building has since been maintained by AEP. The preservation of the site's history is important to West Texas Utilities, as well as the City of Abilene. Considering the power plant's tremendous cinematic aesthetic, use of this building is
vital to telling the story of Joseph Klagger and will raise the film's production value greatly.

The short film KLAGGER is being expanded to a feature-length version by Director Casey Crow and
Casey's brother and producing partner, Gene Crow. The KLAGGER feature will expand the story of Joseph Klagger's death in 1977 and how his malevolent spirit terrorizes a small demolition crew employed to raze the factory he died in 36 years earlier.
