We’ve gotten word on a cool British horror film that is just getting under way: Writer/director Mark Murphy has started filming The Convent in London. We’ll keep you updated on this one, but for now dig the cool promo poster.
The Convent tells two interconnecting stories played out in parallel, intersecting with each other. The first story follows five twenty-somethings, who, on the hunt for some excitement, break into an abandoned church/convent only to become the victims of the horrors that lurk within. The second story follows the church’s investigation into the tragic “accident” that resulted in the deaths of the group that broke into the church.
From the Press Release
Principal photography began recently on British writer/director Mark Murphy’s horror movie debut, The Convent, featuring an up and coming British cast lead by Nicola Posener (Payback Season) and Mark Harris (GBH).
Produced by Yvette Hoyle, the movie is scheduled to film on location in London for three weeks. The cast also includes Peter Woodward (Fall of the Essex Boys), Natalie Stone (Werewolf in a Woman’s Prison) and Lucy Drive (The Borgias).
The Convent blends classic supernatural horror with a modern found footage twist. Murphy, whose docu-drama Casanova’s Love Letters starred Patrick Bergin and Armand Assante, commented, “Marrying the found footage genre with a more traditional theatrical style into two inter-lapping stories is one that I am sure audiences will get excited about. When your high concept is Paranormal Activity meets Blair Witch meets The Exorcist, you know the opportunity to tell a great horror yarn is there for the taking.”
