Press release: Templeheart Films partner with The London Bridge Experience to bring The Tombs to life
Officially classed as the UK’s scariest tourist attraction, The London Tombs at the London Bridge Experience, is about to get scarier as Templeheart Films begin principal photography this week on a movie designed to bring the attraction to life.
A publicity stunt, promoting the sequel to the cult box office hit 'The Tombs', turns horribly wrong as an evil spirit trails the "celebrity" guests through the claustrophobic halls of the famous maze of terror.
Written by Michael W Smith and directed by Dan Brownlie, The Tombs: Rise of the Damned, is set entirely in the London attraction and stars Jessica Ann Brownlie (Valley of the Witch), Jess Impiazzi (The Only Way Is Essex), Marcia do Vales (Ibiza Undead), Akie Kotabe (Humans), Anthony Ilott (Wrong Turn 6), Ayvianna Snow (Heretiks) and Devora Wilde (Rush).
“Horror fans are some of independent film’s most loyal audiences, so to partner with The London Bridge Experience makes for a perfect brand partnership”, says producer Rachel Gold. “With the success of attractions like Secret Cinema, the growth of interactive theatre shows and the explosion of VR, its obvious that audiences are crying out for new immersive experiences. So it seemed obvious to create a movie where the actual film location is open to the public to experience for themselves what our film’s characters are going through.”
Director Dan Brownlie said "As a director, I feel incredibly privileged to be filming inside the London Tombs considering this is the first time that the attraction has ever allowed third party photography of any kind to take place in this sought after location despite numerous requests including high profile production and television companies. This is an opportunity not to be missed and I feel honoured to be trusted with the secrets of this highly protected location. I cannot thank team at The London Bridge Experience enough."
