The Hatching (directed by Michael Anderson)
Shot in Somerset in November/December 2013, this “dark comedy/horror that does for the Somerset moors what Jaws did for beaches” stars Thomas Turgoose from Eden Lake and Andrew-Lee Potts from Primeval. I covered this last November when the film premiered at the Bath Film Festival, followed by a screening near Bridgewater. More at www.facebook.com/hatchingthemovie
Hungerford (d.Drew Casson)
Directed in 2013 by 19-year-old Drew Casson with £20,000 funding from Wildseed Studios, this alien invasion picture premiered at Sci-Fi London in May 2014. It also screened at Shriekfest in LA in October and has just been accepted into Fantasporto. I reviewed a screener in June. Originally titled Hunger Ford, I wasn’t the only reviewer to suggest that a further title change might help.
I am Cursed (directed by Shiraz Khan)
Filmed around Windsor in the summer of 2011, there was a single screening in London in June 2014 but no news since then. More at www.iamcursed.co.uk
Impurity (directed by Andy Remic)
Shot in Lincolnshire in May 2013, this debut feature from horror author Andy Remic had a cast and crew screening in December of that year (at the famous Kinema in the Woods) but has otherwise remained unseen. Frazer Hines, who was Jamie in Doctor Who a thousand years ago, lends name value. Remic, who calls this “a dark, brooding, powerful feature film in the tradition of Saw, Hostel, Dead Man’s Shoes and Shallow Grave” is now prepping a second feature, The Mask Within.
