The Messenger of the Dead Appears at AFM 2014

News of more necro-themed shenanigans has come our way out of AFM as right now we have the first image gallery and artwork for The Messenger.

The flick was written by Andrew Kirk for BAFTA and Emmy award-winning director David Blair. It stars Lily Cole, Joely Richardson, Robert Sheehan, and Tamzin Merchant.

Synopsis:
The Messenger centers on Jack (Sheehan), a young man who has been in and out of secure units all his life, given drugs to try to shut out his visions of the dead. He becomes unwillingly embroiled in the unfinished business of Mark, a journalist brutally murdered in the local park, and his television presenter wife, Sarah, to whom he’s desperate to say one last goodbye.

Jack finds himself getting closer to Sarah, obsessed with passing on Mark’s message. Discovering hidden secrets and lies finally pushes the fragile Jack over the edge, but there is hope when his estranged sister, Emma, gets in touch. Jack starts to remember the past they shared together, and as the memories come flooding back, he starts to confront the truth about the death of his father.
