Foresight Features, the studio behind MONSTER BRAWL and EXIT HUMANITY, has teamed up with acclaimed writer Tony Burgess (PONTYPOOL) for a 1950's style throwback entitled HELLMOUTH, starring PONTYPOOL's Stephen McHattie and directed by John Geddes (EXIT HUMANITY).
While not much is known about the plot at the moment, McHattie will play a dying grave keeper who is forced to take one final job. He will be joined onscreen by Siobhan Murphy, Julian Richings, Boyd Banks, Mark Gibson and Bruce McDonald.
An ode to classic horror and fantasy, Hellmouth is a VFX spectacle that chronicles Charlie Baker's (McHattie) dark descent through gothic landscapes, demonic worlds and medieval realms as he journeys to discover the secret behind a mysterious cemetery.
Director John Geddes released a statement in which he shared his thoughts on what inspired him to create HELLMOUTH, stating...
I wanted to create a story-driven film with fantasy and horror combined. Something that was directly inspired by the era of Hitchcock and even Ed Wood. Working with a writer like Tony Burgess was a pleasure as we both love the simplicity in many of the old classic films of the 50's and 60's, and even earlier in films like Nosferatu and Faust. We worked really hard to make Hellmouth something fresh."
Expect more on this cool sounding film soon!
