“What is thy name?”
“My name is Legion for we are many.”
Gothic and folk horror thrive in the halls of Hex, the studio behind The Owlman (aka Lord of Tears), The Unkindness of Ravens, The Black Gloves, and The Devil’s Machine. Their next chilling offering is the anthology We Are Many, a film that brings together 13 directors from around the world in order to summon 13 demons to the screen!
We Are Many will premiere at the FrightFest Film Festival in London next month. For a taste of what’s in store, check out the trailer embedded at the top of the article!
The film stars a host of horror icons including Eileen Dietz (The Exorcist), Nicholas Vince (Hellraiser), and Laurence R. Harvey (The Human Centipede II). Each segment tells the terrifying story of a particular demonic entity, from a devastatingly sensual succubus to a Native-American demon that drives its victims to cannibalism, and many more, ranging from the biblical to the Lovecraftian.
Following an open pitching process, the producers at Hex worked closely with the filmmakers to ensure that each short would feature unique and iconic creatures, bold, original stories and (literally) eye-popping practical effects.
According to producer Lawrie Brewster of Hex, “A big part of our mission at Hex Studios has always been to provide a platform for and shine a light on emerging talent. Working with so many supremely talented filmmakers to produce For We Are Many has been a fantastic experience, and we’re all so proud of the film we’ve created together. We’re already planning two further anthologies for next year which we’ll be announcing soon, and which will, again, be open to all to submit pitches.”
