Lord of Tears, a supernatural horror film set in the Scottish Highlands is set to be unleashed on the Festival circuit later this year and you can be a part of it, by joining their Kickstarter campaign.
Unlike a lot of campaigns, the film is already completed, and the funds will go to further polish the finished product and market the film. Amongst the usual rewards of DVD, Blu-ray and T-shirts, one pledger could walk away with the actual Owlman costume used in the film.
Check out the atmospheric trailer:
And, from the press release:
“Lord of Tears takes its inspiration from the traditional British Gothic ghost story, but adds a Celtic twist with its Highland setting and pagan themes. Writer Sarah Daly describes the film as ‘The Wicker Man meets The Woman in Black’.
The film is a startling, psychological, supernatural thriller set against the ominous backdrop of a cursed highland estate. The film stars David Schofield (Gladiator, Pirates of the Caribbean) Lexy Hulme (500 Days of Summer) and Scottish actor Euan Douglas in his feature début.
It tells the chilling story of James Findlay (Douglas), a school teacher plagued by recurring nightmares of a mysterious and unsettling entity. Suspecting that his visions are linked to a dark incident in his past, James returns to his childhood home, a notorious mansion in the Scottish Highlands. There, he finds love in the form of aspiring dancer Evie Turner (Hulme) who helps him to unravel the dark history of the house. But, when James finally uncovers the disturbing truth behind his dreams, he must fight to survive the brutal consequences of his curiosity…
Director Lawrie Brewster says of the film ‘With this film I wanted to tell the type of story I enjoy watching, the creepy type of thriller that gets under your skin, with unexpected twists, and memorable and disturbing supernatural inspired imagery. We take inspiration from classic British chillers such as The Haunting and The Legend of Hell House whilst adding our own, Scottish Celtic twist to the mix.
Writer/Director team Sarah Daly and Lawrie Brewster have worked together on a number of projects including their debut feature White Out and the festival favourite Morgan M. Morgansen short films starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Channing Tatum and Lexy Hulme”.
