Midlands Movies speaks to Kaush Patel and Dave Hasting who are returning in 2015 to release an ambitious new anthology horror film.
Entitled ‘The House of Screaming Death’, the West Midlands pair explain that it’s heavily influence by the much celebrated great British gothic horror films of the 1960-70s. The new feature will uphold their successful traditions by telling four macabre tales of terror narrated by the mysterious Architect. Each horrific segment delves into explicit corners of the supernatural including the ghostly Lady In Grey, stories of witchcraft most foul, vampirism & the occult.
Producer Dave Hastings of Lightbeam Productions describes the script as “truly splendid & horrific! It has gothic horror soaked right into its pages with each story having a nasty sting in their tail”.
“But the whole project never loses its connection to past inspirations & traditions. This is the old school British horror I grew up on throughout my youth, but in an exciting and glorious way that both new and existing fans/audiences will enjoy no end”, he adds..
Dave goes on to say, “We’re all fans of the classics that came before us, so we want to now bring that horror back to the UK properly as well as giving viewers many sleepless nights in the process.”
The House of Screaming Death will be commencing an Indiegogo funding event which will reward contributors, whilst further cast & crew positions will soon be announced through their official website and social media pages.
“Our last film, the hugely successful Checking In, has been seen by audiences worldwide to great continued critical acclaim, and was made for only £2,500 & Won Best British Film at The London Film Awards! Now imagine what we can achieve on this project with a bigger budget,” says Producer Kaush Patel of Pat The Bull Films.
Each segment has a specific writer/director. The Lady in Grey has been written by Troy Dennison who will direct. The Witch in The Mirror was written by Mark Lees and will be directed by Rebecca Harris-Smith. The Vampyre was written by Dave Hastings who will also direct and the final segment, The Diabolique is the creation of celebrated FX artist Alex Bourne, also directing his story. The mysterious Architect segments will be directed by Kaush along with those scenes scripted by Dave.
Troy Dennsion, the writer and director of Lady The Grey comments how the team have been described by The London Film Awards as “some of the world’s most innovative and talented contemporary filmmakers, so you can see from that alone hopefully that we are truly passionate about what we do, and only want to make the best possible film for audiences”.
