Baphomet Update; Dani Filth Joins the Production!



danifilth-1We’ve been telling you about the upcoming film Baphomet for a while now, but finally production has officially commenced, and we have an update from writer/director Matthan Harris, including some very interesting casting news!

Per Harris, “We had a very exciting three-day shoot in Los Angeles with the talented Pedro Avila as the film’s cinematographer. Then I immediately flew to London for a fourth day of shooting with Dani Filth (pictured right), frontman of extreme metal band Cradle of Filth. Dani plays occult expert Lon Carlson, and he did an amazing job bringing the character to life. For the London shoot we were joined by longtime Cradle of Filth collaborator Ross Bolidai (director of Cradle of Filth music videos ‘Lilith Immaculate’ and ‘For Your Vulgar Delectation’).”

“After the shoot,” he continues, “we went to the east side of London for sushi and drinks (see photo below). It was especially awesome and surreal to walk the streets of London at night and have Dani point out the spot where Jack the Ripper killed his final victim.”

The rest of Baphomet will be shot next year so stay tuned for more announcements.

Harris serves as writer, director, co-star, and producer with Incisive Pictures on Baphomet. For more info and updates, keep your eyes on the Baphomet Facebook page.

A family in Northern California celebrates their 24-year-old daughter’s pregnancy. The celebration is interrupted when Satanic cult leader Henrik Brandr (Giovanni Lombardo Radice) unexpectedly visits their ranch. Henrik offers to pay the family a large sum for ownership of their land, claiming it is sacred to his congregation. Jacob Richardson, the father, rejects the offer due to the priceless sentimental value of the ranch. Henrik, displeased, begins to put devastating curses on the Richardsons, trying to force them off their land – even if it means murdering them.

After suffering unexplainable tragedies, the Richardsons seek help from Marybeth, a white witch high priestess. They soon discover a terrible secret about their house, revealing why their land is sacred to the cult. They realize they must protect their house from the cult at all costs, and a violent battle between good and evil ensues.
