“Alberto [Frezza], who plays Garrett, is constantly trying to scare me,” Elizabeth shared with Variety. “He was hiding behind these hanging mannequins on a rack and I had passed by them so many times in the dark but I hadn’t seen them, and he flashed a light on them and I had a death scream! It was so scary.”
She added, “Even the people who play, I’m going to call them ‘the hauntees,’ their makeup is so scary I don’t even want to talk to them on set.”
The campers gather around a warm fire to listen to a scary tale in this still from the upcoming new Freeform series, Dead of Summer.
The new show is set in the late 1980s at Camp Clearwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp, including first loves, first kisses—and first kills. Clearwater’s dark, ancient mythology awakens, and what was supposed to be a summer of fun soon turns into one of unforgettable scares and evil at every turn.
Part coming-of-age story, part supernatural horror story, “Dead of Summer” is a bold, new series that mixes genres as it examines the light and dark of a summer like no other.
Premiering June 28th, Dead of Summer stars Elizabeth Mitchell as Deb, the new owner of the camp; Elizabeth Lail as Amy, a clever but new and nervous camp counselor; Zelda Williams, a counselor, who is a mysterious loner with no interest in bonding with the rest of the group; Mark Indelicato; Alberto Frezza, as Deputy Garrett Sykes, who grows immediately suspicious; Eli Goree as Joel, an aspiring filmmaker; Ronen Rubinstein and Paulina Singer.
