On the eve of the annual Scarecrow Festival, two St. Charles police officers 
search for a return killer the same night four teenagers go missing on Munger Road. 

We are very excited to have Writer/Director Nicholas Smith with us for a jam packed evening. We'll see clips and you can find out how he created Munger Road. It's getting lots of buzz. 

Nicholas Smith 

How did a 26-year-old St. Charles North High School grad get Oscar-nominated 
actor Bruce Davison to star in his new indie horror film? 

Mr. Smith grew up in Saint Charles, Illinois and graduated with a B.A. in Film from Columbia College Chicago in 2008. Mr. Smith is a Co-founder and Executive of Insomnia Productions, LTD. “Munger Road” is Mr. Smith’s first feature-length film, in which he both wrote and directed. Mr. Smith is a native storyteller and is attracted to the collaborative art of film. Mr. Smith studied under renowned Chicago filmmaker Gary Sherman at Columbia and has been influenced by his classic approach to the craft.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the meeting last night. Everyone was inclusive when they spoke to you and to the group, and I met some people am looking forward to meeting up with again. I was also made aware of how helpful others in the biz can be if you let them into your view.
