About the Film
Some films capture memories we like to remember, others record moments we are dying to forget! A genre-splicing journey into the darkest depths of the soul, The Harsh Light of Day is a new British vampire-themed horror, with a story of revenge and loss at its heart. Shot on a micro-budget on location in Dorset, England it is the feature debut from writer/director Oliver S Milburn. Daniel (Dan Richardson), a writer on the occult, is a happily married man until the day his wife is murdered, and he is left paralysed in a brutal, seemingly random attack, by a group of masked intruders. When the police are unable to find the perpetrators, Daniel is left in a pit of bitterness and anger. Desperately seeking vengeance, Daniel is brought to the attention of a mysterious stranger who changes everything. He offers Daniel something he hadn't dared hope for, something that shouldn't even be possible. He will help him walk, help him search, help him find vengeance – and it soon becomes clear that his wife’s murder wasn't entirely without purpose. All this, but at one hell of a price!
Inspiring filmmaking on a budget
This is definitely one for students of filmmaking. This film was made for next to nothing, by a load of students, and it stands up with the rest of them. It offers an original take on the myth of the vampire, a great revenge story, solid cast and some good action sequences and visual effects. A film school in itself, and there are loads of videos online about how the guys made this movie. Well worth a watch!!
