Spanish horror icon Macarena Gomez has spoken about her role in upcoming indie horror film The Black Gloves. The Scottish horror, which has received attention from Guillermo Del Toro continues the ‘Owlman’ folklore’ first unleashed in viral YouTube pranks.
Horror fans will recognise Macarena Gomez from her many iconic performances in the genre, from the mesmerizing sea priestess in Dagon to the deranged shut-in in Shrew’s Nest, and the psychotic murderess in Sexy Killer. She is known for her intense and memorable performances, but her role in The Black Gloves might be her most extreme yet. In this Hitchcock-inspired horror, Macarena plays Lorena Velasco, a formidable ballet mistress obsessed with the recovery of her troubled student.
Macarena chats candidly about working with Director Lawrie Brewster and her fellow actors Jamie Scott-Gordon and Alexandra Nicole Hulme, as well as the challenges of performing in English, and what it’s like to work on an independent production.
The Black Gloves is the latest offering from Director/Writer team Lawrie Brewster and Sarah Daly. It tells the story of a psychologist obsessed with the disappearance of his young patient, and the menacing owl-headed figure that plagued her nightmares. His investigations lead him to a reclusive ballerina who, just like his patient, is convinced that she is about to die at the hands of this disturbing entity.

The filmmakers have launched a Kickstarter campaign to secure finishing funds for the project. With less than a week to go, there’s still time to get involved and help this indie chiller reach its full potential.
