Impurity - Synopsis

Starring “Doctor Who’s” Frazer Hines - Plus James Rothwell, Sonia Browne, Rick Cross.

Shotgun Jimmy is a nasty piece of work. Ripping off drug dealers, killing policemen, he’d decapitate his own grandmother for a sack full of loot. Schizophrenic, psychopathic, his only friend is Mary the Shotgun – his trusty, reliable pump-action. But during a violent road-rage incident, something goes horribly wrong and Jimmy finds himself chained in shackles in a dark, grimy dungeon where he ponders over a deeply buried secret past…

Tomas Sorescu’s been a bad man. He likes his whiskey. And brandy. Vodka, rum or gin? Hell, he’ll drink petrol if it isn’t nailed down. Only now he’s done a rather silly thing. He’s crashed his car – and killed his wife and little girl in the process. Tomas feels pretty bad about the situation. So bad, in fact, he needs another drink. But then it gets worse as a tall, powerful, gas-mask wearing figure pulls Tomas from the wreckage and introduces him to a special place…

Sophie Scott is a successful career journalist in the sleepy village of Ramsbottom. Happy and confident, she now hides a secret… For a few weeks earlier, she killed her husband. Stabbed him in the guts and buried his body in the woods. Now, his restless spirit haunts her, and she hears his mockery at every street corner. Sophie starts to believe she’s going mad. Then, whilst following up a murder story in the woods, she visits an old witch called Alice – and within minutes, meets the gas-masked figure known as Chemical Man. Meets him, and ends up in the boot of his car.

All three characters awake, chained and shackled in a cellar dungeon. At first they squabble like children, but soon realise their abductor is far from sane. However, Chemical Man doesn’t want to kill them. Not yet. First, he wants to purify them. He sees their souls as stained by the impurity of their dark deeds… and this cleansing process promises to be a lot more painful…

IMPURITY is a dark, brooding, powerful feature film in the tradition of SAW, HOSTEL, DEAD MAN’S SHOES and SHALLOW GRAVE, from best-selling novelist and filmmaker ANDY REMIC.

“Has a ruined, brooding darkness… quite the most terrifying thing I’ve seen; I’ll be having nightmares for a month!” – Ian Graham, Author of Monument.

The Mask Within – Synopsis

After a near-death experience, Mary Harrington is recuperating in Venice. Here, she comes to believe that we all wear masks – to hide from our work colleagues, our friends, and ultimately, our families.

Mary returns home to her husband, Jack, and two young boys – and the 250 year old house they recently bought. Everything seems fine; happy, safe and secure. Until subtle changes begin.

Mary’s children behave odd. They dream that a young woman lives under their bed; a woman haunted by a brutal past. Anna stands on a beach, her hair wet, pointing, and eternally crying. Exploring the dilapidated outhouses, Mary discovers an ancient, chained-up chest – and a wall full of Victorian death photos, proud in their sinister horror.

In the midst of these changes, a party is thrown for Jack’s birthday – and during the following hedonism, the masked party-goers begin to twist and deform. The morning after, Jack announces he is leaving his wife and children for another woman. Alone in the house, both boys start to dress in black suits – like those in the Victorian death photos. They refuse to do what they are told… because Anna “needs their help”. And after a family visit, and an act of bloody murder, Mary starts to spiral out of control… she begins to understand the ghostly presence which haunts the grounds… for Mary must uncover the truth about Anna, the reason the girl’s spirit is so wretched, tormented and lost… and she must seek to save not just her estranged husband, Jack, and her little boys – but also the depths of her own ever-darkening soul.

The Mask Within is a disturbing, eerie ghost story/thriller by ANDY REMIC, writer/director of IMPURITY and best-selling author of sixteen internationally published novels.
