Just a few days ago we let you know about the new film from director Mark Murphy. Today we have the first stills for you, both behind-the-scenes and otherwise. Read on for more and to inject a little demonic action into your weekend!
“Nearly halfway through the shoot, and luckily the only deaths and disasters are all happening on screen,” says Murphy. “Today we shoot a key scene which will have people talking for years to come. Feeling like a mole man having spent so much time filming in the crypt, but we’re getting gold on a daily basis. Very much looking forward to seeing this on the big screen but will sorely miss working with such an amazing cast and crew; expecting big things from Nicola Posener, Tom Leeper, Charley McDougall, Sabrina Bussandri and Lucy Drive.”
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.”
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.
