Barnt Green film company Walktall Productions is getting ready to scare audiences with its current project, a Hammer-style horror thriller.

The Legacy of Dark House, shot in and around the village, is written, directed and produced by Sheila Evans, who runs the small independent company with husband Bill.

The film is described as a “short, psychological horror in the style of Hammer House of Horror” and will be shown at the launch of the new Birmingham Festival of Terror at The Custard Factory, Digbeth in October.

It features a cast of professional actors and a top-class director of photography, Gary-Anthony Rogers, who has already received adulation for his work so far on Dark House from well-known Hollywood cinematographer Shane Hurlburt (who has shot episodes of Game of Thrones plus several big Hollywood movies).

Sheila says, “The story revolves around the demise of Fay, a young woman who inherits a remote country house, believing her aunt to be her benefactor… All is not as it seems!”

Walktall Productions, which created 2012’s award-winning Vodka and Chips, plans to produce a British/Bollywood cross-over comedy film once work on Dark House is complete.
