The Black Gloves (Feature Film) Gothic Lovecraft Horror

£65,674

Deep in the Scottish highlands, Dr. Finn Galloway suspects a terrifying conspiracy to unleash an unimaginable Horror...

The Black Gloves is a 1940s-set Film Noir that combines spine-tingling horror with intense psychological dread - a supernatural tale where one man must battle against a terrifying stalker as ancient as time itself.

Our film stars Macarena Gomez (Shrew's Nest, Dagon) Jamie Scott- Gordon (The Unkindness of Ravens) and Alexandra Nicole Hulme (Lord of Tears.)

Dr. Finn Galloway is a psychologist obsessed with the mysterious death of his young patient, and her belief in a strange and terrifying entity... 

Determined to find answers, Finn discovers a vital clue when he learns that once-famous ballerina Elisa Grey now lives in crippling fear of a similar entity... the so-called Owlman. In the crumbling Baldurrock Estate, he finds the ballerina hidden away, under the watchful eye of her sinister guardian, Lorena Velasco. 

There, in the bleak isolation of the Scottish Highlands, Finn must battle against a force of unimaginable evil - a nightmare foe like no other. 

The Black Gloves features one of the most terrifying entities of ancient legend, made popular around the world in both film and literature - a figure some call 'The Owlman'.

Inspired by the texts of ancient religion and Celtic/Eastern mythology, the Owlman has become an internet phenomenon. From his first outing in our micro-budget feature Lord of Tears to the many videos which have followed, the Owlman has captured the imagination of audiences around the world.

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

Lawrie Brewster is passionate about making bold, original horror films that are rich with mythology and lore. His previous films 'Lord of Tears' and 'The Unkindness of Ravens' have both received critical acclaim, as well as, most importantly, high praise from horror fans who are hungry for something different.

Sarah Daly is a prolific Irish screenwriter with a love for all things dark and mysterious. Her writing is the cornerstone of Hex Media's focus on original, thrilling stories above all else. The Black Gloves is her fourth feature collaboration with Lawrie Brewster, and the duo's most ambitious yet. 

Our film stars Macarena Gomez, legendary Spanish horror and fantasy actress who stars in the recent Musarañas (Shrew's Nest) as well as the classic Dagon by Stuart Gordon, and Miguel Marti's Sexy Killer.

In The Black Gloves, Macarena Gomez dazzles as the formidable Miss Velasco, in a memorable and powerhouse performance. We are very excited and honoured to have Macarena on board.

Co-Starring is Jamie Scott Gordon, star of our last film The Unkindness of Ravens. As an intense method actor, his performance drew praise from audiences and critics alike  

'Jamie Scott Gordon is stunning because of his emotional depth and because of the range he demonstrates.' Ain't It Cool News  

Nicholas Vince (Hellraiser, Nightbreed) co-stars as the mysterious 'Uncle Edward.' Nicholas is a classic horror actor and a brilliant journalist, specialising in the genre. 

Also starring is Alexandra Nicole Hulme, who starred in our original Owlman feature Lord of Tears. Alexandra brings to life the haunting beauty and terrifying menace of her unpredictable character.

We really need your help to complete our post-production and to market the film so that it can be seen by the widest audience possible.

We've used our own money along with some help from our friends at Dark Dunes Productions to fund the shooting phase of our film. But now, to finish the post-production of our film, we need your help. 

We care passionately about creating fresh, exciting, and, above all else, original horror films, but because of this, we struggle to get mainstream funding. The only way that these unusual, risky films will get made, and get out there, is with the support of fans of the genre. So, we hope you'll come on this crazy, exciting journey with us, and show the world that there is a hunger out there for original, edgy content!

In return for your support, we'll work hard to produce rewards that you'll be proud to own, and films that you'll love to watch. Rest assured, every penny we get we'll match with our own blood, sweat and tears as we work to make The Black Gloves the best film it can possibly be.

Risks and challenges

The film is already in the home stretch. Once we meet our fundraising target, we will get straight to work completing the final draft – there is absolutely no chance that the film won't get finished (barring perhaps a global apocalypse type scenario!). We've put a year of our lives into it already and we'll be doing whatever it takes to get it done as soon as possible, and looking as great as it possibly can!

Then, as soon as the film is finished, we'll get right onto producing all your rewards. We have a detailed plan in place for how we will do this. We can't guarantee that we will make the delivery dates suggested on the rewards – for example, should we manage to snag an amazing distribution deal, we might have to wait a little longer before sending out the movie. But we CAN guarantee that we'll do everything in our power to get them out on time and we will keep you in the loop throughout the process with plenty of updates. You, the funders, are our priority and we want you to have the best experience with us on this film. You can also get in touch any time with questions – we're quite friendly!
