About the Film
"…reminiscent of The Blair Witch Project… with more than a little of the black comedy of Shaun of the Dead. Horror fans won’t be left hungry." - London Evening Standard. WINNER Best Horror Sci Fi - Berlin Independent Film Festival. Cowen Rosewell is a student living with a small group of old friends, in a scruffy flat, in a small English town. His first media studies assignment is to record everything in 'a week of his life'. Following an epic storm, things in Hungerford change and when Cowen inadvertently kills an assailant, whilst defending of one of his best friends, the inexplicably serious nature of the dead assailant’s injuries alert them to a more disturbing reality...
So, first I have to declare my role on the film as one of the producers - so here comes my gushing review. Drew Casson the director was 18 when we found him making fan films and special effects for YouTube. Because these films were so good we spent a year with him developing this film Hungerford which we shot for under £25,000 in the summer of 2013. Since then it has premiered at the NFT as frappe to SCI-FI-LONDON , making Drew the youngest director on record to have a film screened at the BFI, it was won awards at Berlin Independent Film Festival and Fanstasporto and we are shooting the sequel in April. Drew is a shining example of what we are trying to do at Wildseed Studios, enabling exciting new talent to take their talent to a new level. With Drew eh just skipped a couple of levels and went from enthusiast to award winner in one bound. The film is great - really good performances, great characters, great special effects (including creatures, space ships and everything) and a huge amount of heart. If you rent or buy this you will be part of of our missions send a huge young talent all the way to the top!
Looking forward to watching!
Really enjoyed this film there are some great characters who you feel you already know ten minutes into the film. Some black humour which reminded me a little of Shawn of the dead. Also some great visual effects. A really good British Sci-fi horror.
