Tales Of The Creeping Death is a Horror/Sci-Fi Anthology feature film that will have you diving for the light switch . A mixture of horror, Sci-Fi and dark humour combined with spectacular scenery and amazing practical effects.
Our film stars Darren McAree (The Slayers, Crispy's Curse), Ricky Tomlinson (The Royale Family, Nativity etc), George Newton (This is England, Dead Mans Shoes, The Slayers) and many more to be announced soon.
The film will feature practical make up effects from world renowned special effects Artist Gary Pollard (Alien 3, Labyrinth , Slaughterhouse Rulez, The Fifth Element, The Harry Potter series, Game Of Thrones, Dr Who, Star Wars - Episode 1 and many more. Gary will also take charge in building the fearsome werewolf for the film, a totally original design and one that will live long into the memory.
The film is written and directed by multi award winning director and producer John Williams, whose previous credits include the feature films The Mothertown, Crispy's Curse and the Slayers. Co-producing is the talented Claire Ward.
Here is my showreel for an example of my work
Tales Of The Creeping Death tells the story of Goose, a seasoned hitman who responds to a call, but this is not the kind of call he was expecting.
Deep into the bowels of the English countryside stands an old gothic mansion, within it waits Harold. Harold is a very old, disabled gentlemen who has called upon the services of Goose. Why on earth would a elderly man like Harold require the services of a hitman? Harold explains as they sit by the grand fireplace, his face glowing from flickering flames " You need to keep me alive until 3am" commands Harold, he continues "Nobody is coming to kill me and I live alone"
"He's clearly nuts" thinks the confused Goose as he relaxes in the large chair by the fire as the growing storm thunders and cracks outside, ready to collect his easy money.
To pass the time, Harold begins to read aloud from a large book of old newspaper clippings, each one making up the four terrifying Tales Of The Creeping Death. Only until the very end will we find out the mystery behind Harold and his invitation to Goose.
And Lots More
In Tales Of The Creeping Death, Billy Cook (Traveller, Eat Locals, Ripper Street) gives a terrific and emotional performance as a happy go lucky young man celebrating his birthday with his friends, needless to say things turn out in a unexpected and unwelcome way.
Also starring is Darren McAree (The Slayers, Crispy's Curse) is set to play the social misfit that is Shane Lymer, Darren is a very talented character actor who is set for a bright future.
Also, turning his hand at horror is the wonderful Ricky Tomlinson (The Royale Family, Nativity) in probably his most bizarre role to date.
We also welcome back George Newton (This Is England, Dead Mans Shoes) in the ever increasing cast. More to be announced very soon.
Easily the biggest challenge in creating the film is the special make up effects so, I am incredibly humbled to have on board world renowned special effects artist and sculptor Gary Pollard. Gary, along with his team, has already created some outstanding effects for the film and is chomping at the bit to begin work on the films fearsome werewolf. This will NOT be some guy running around in a werewolf mask howling at people, this will be something much more and will be something like you have never seen. Gary needs no introduction but this part of the pitch would look odd without one so here are a few examples of the work that Gary has done over the years.
We need your help to complete production and post-production on what is my most ambitious film yet, featuring a full bloodied Werewolf attack on unsuspecting and packed Bingo hall.
With your support, we can complete our film with all the grandeur and scale we envisage, and market it so that we can show it to the widest audience possible.
We've used our own money so far, along with support from our friends, without who we would not have got close to this point, but to complete production and to finish post-production, we need your help.
I have dedicated everything to creating fresh, exciting, and, above all else, original horror films, but because of this, i do struggle to get mainstream funding.
