One of the great modern horror movie actors out there is Michael Ironside. No question. It is with this in mind, and our love for his performance in Turbo Kid, that we always look forward to a new Michael Ironside film.
Case in point, Jon Keeyes’ new, mind-bending horror-thriller The Harrowing co-starring and produced by Matthew Tompkins. The film held its world premiere and EFM debut in Berlin on Friday, February 18th and hopefully, this means we will be hearing about its eventual release very soon.
But until we know an official release date, you can check out the poster to the right, and a bunch of quotes from the filmmakers along with some choice stills below.
After that let us know what you think of The Harrowing thus far!
“As a lifelong genre fan, The Harrowing is a movie that is going to get audiences excited across the world,” Keeyes says. “We’ve carefully crafted an intelligent, suspenseful, tense thriller that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats while driving them down a road of psychological twists and turns. Right out of the gate, we pull them in with an explosive opening sequence and then keep them guessing as the mystery unfolds until we blow their minds in the final moments. Being able to construct such an intricate puzzle like this – that is both entertaining and thought-provoking – has been a joy.”
“We’re thrilled to screen The Harrowing to distributors and audiences for the very first time in Berlin.” Film Mode Entertainment’s Clay Epstein added. “Horror and thriller fans are in for the ride of their lives with The Harrowing – a gripping, mind-bending, nail-biter of a film that has a great deal of worldwide commercial appeal with the recent success of the genre.”
“The Harrowing is carefully constructed to be a powerful synergy of elements that make it one of those rare ‘elevated’ genre films with true crossover appeal to a wide variety of hardcore fans…,” Tompkins says. “The film is a potent mix of horror and supernatural elements that underpin a very smart, disturbing, and complicated psychological thriller…the idea of being able to drive the narrative utilizing all of these things, to truly pull that off, from both a commercial and artistic perspective, was a fantastic opportunity for us as Filmmakers.”
The Harrowing is written and directed by Jon Keeyes (American Nightmare, Fall Down Dead) and stars Michale Ironside (Scanners, Turbo Kid), Matthew Tompkins (Sicario) and Arnold Vosloo (The Mummy).
We’ll let you know when we hear more!

- virgo02 I really liked the movie when it came out and I still do. I just watched it the other day. I still can't believe they took away the sibling part of the movie. That too me made it more suspenseful. The...

- One-Eye I remember it as being one of the better post SCREAM slasher movies. I certainly haven't watched it since then.
