The Viewer is set to be the third film in a trilogy of shorts inspired by Alfred Hitchcock. The trilogy was created by Nine Ladies Film, based in Wirksworth, Derbyshire. They are an award winning Independent film production company who specialise in producing horror, psychological horror and psychological thrillers.
The team have launched a campaign on IndieGoGo to support the final film in the series. It’s scheduled to start shooting in late June and will be released in late October 2016. The film is written by Stuart Wheeldon and Nick John Whittle and Stuart will also take the reins as director.
Here’s the synopsis: “A young woman believing herself to have been impregnated by the devil is intent on committing herself and her unborn child to the grave. In a desperate bid to find her and prevent a tragedy the village priest enlists the help of a well-known psychic unaware of how this decision has sealed his own terrible fate.”
Nine Ladies are setting the film against a rural backdrop in the Derbyshire Dales.
In July 2015, the team embarked on filming the first part of a planned horror trilogy In Limbo. They successfully raised over £500 via crowdfunding to complete the project. The project was completed in a four day shoot and involves many of the cast and crew used on the Telephone – the next in the series.
The film premiered at The Northern Light Cinema, Wirksworth, Derbyshire on October 4th 2015 and played for three nights. So far the film has appeared at over twelve film festivals and won best film and best actor at the 12 Month Film Festival and Audience award for best horror film at the Festigious International Film Festival.
To complete the trilogy, the team are seeking £1000 funding – and have raised almost a quarter so far. Head over to IndieGoGo to find out more and support the campaign.
