Ritual Killings Lead to The Harrowing


Like your entertainment on the darker side of the fence? Of course you do. That’s why you’re here. It’s also why we think you’re gonna dig this next flick called The Harrowing!

From the Press Release:
Legendary character actor Michael Ironside (Total Recall) and Arnold Vosloo (The Mummy) are joining Matthew Tompkins (Sicario) and John Hickman (Avengers of Justice) in The Harrowing, written and directed by veteran horror director Jon Keeyes and produced by Wolfclan Productions and Highland Myst Entertainment, filming in Dallas, Texas.

Actor Tompkins and director Keeyes are producing with James Cable, Carl Kirshner, and John Walpole. The film also stars Morgana Shaw (“Salem”), Damon Carney (Hellraiser: Judgement), and Arianne Martin (Drive Angry).

“We’re trying to push horror into some areas that haven’t been explored in a while,” shared director Keeyes. “The Harrowing is an intellectual horror movie that questions reality, explores the psychological and metaphorical meaning of demons, and yet entertains with a lot of great terror.”

Ironside plays Carl Logan, a jaded police lieutenant who must decide whether or not his officer is a killer. Vosloo plays Dr. Whitney, who runs a forensic hospital that’s conducting secret experiments on its patients. The film focuses on vice detective Calhoun, played by Matthew Tompkins, who is accused of the ritualistic murder of his best friend. Bent on finding the truth, he is plunged into Hell when he goes undercover and discovers that demons might be real. This is a hard-boiled thriller in the vein of genre classics Jacobs Ladder and Angel Heart.

Says Tompkins, “The idea of playing a rough-shelled, complex character like Ryan Calhoun, so damaged that reality begins to distort for him to the point that he begins to question his very identify, was fascinating. But to have two powerful actors like Michael Ironside and Arnold Vosloo on conflicting sides of the looking glass was thrilling… it kept me on my toes, and I think it will absolutely have the same disturbing effect on the audience.”

Wolfclan Productions and Highland Myst are currently releasing the celebrated festival hit Nightmare Box. Most recently released is the dramatic thriller Odd Man Out and the award-winning Mechanical Grave, with several projects currently in development. Jon Keeyes is a longtime horror director; his debut film is the cult classic American Nightmare.
