Inkubus tells the story of a satanic demon that terrorizes the police crew working the final shift at an abandoned Rhode Island police station. The night takes a gruesome turn when the cops quickly become pawns in the demon's brutal crowning achievement of murder, gore, and mayhem.

Verdi's second feature, Loosies, released theatrically earlier this year by IFC, tells the story of Bobby (Peter Facinelli), a NYC pickpocket passing as a Wall Street stockbroker who roams the city looking for marks. HE must face reality when a old fling informs him she's pregnant, and the baby is his. Suddenly, two different worlds collide, forcing Bobby to reevaluate a lifetime of missteps, and make a big decision about his future. Loosies stars Peter Facinelli (Twilight, Nurse Jackie, The Scorpion King), Jaimie Alexander (Thor, Rest Stop, Hallowed Ground), Vincent Gallo ( Buffalo '66, The Brown Bunny, Tetro), Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2) and Joe Pantoliano (Memento, The Matrix, The Fugitive). Facinelli is the screenwriter and a producer on the film (through his company Facinelli Films), alongside producers Chad A. Verdi, Noah Kraft, and Glenn Ciano. The film was directed by Michael Corrente (American Buffalo), with an original soundtrack composed and performed by American Idol alumni Paul McDonald, an original score by Chad Fischer ( Garden State) and music supervision by Michelle Verdi, head of music and talent for both Verdi Productions and the Woodhaven Production Company. Michelle will soon be approving the release of a soundtrack for both Inkubus and Loosies.
"Both films are in the marketplace and selling extremely well," Verdi stated. "We’ve reached huge numbers in viewership and sales, and we’re all very proud," adding, "Inkubus and Loosies are just the beginning for Woodhaven and Verdi Productions. This Halloween we’ll be following up with our second horror film, Infected, starring William Forsythe and Michael Madsen who battle zombies to death."
