Ash Mountain Films launch crowdfunding campaign for second horror feature film NEFARIOUS

Ash Mountain Films & director Richard Rowntree, makers of the folk-horror festival hit “Dogged” have this week launched a crowdfunding campaign for their new feature film “Nefarious” – a home invasion horror/thriller with a twist.

Receiving 15% of their £20,000 goal in the first 72 hours of launch, the project is garnering plenty of support so far, and will run until 18th May.

Following the success of their first feature (which will be released later this year in North America & the UK on DVD & VOD by Left Films), the team have embarked on another ambitious feature film project, and they’re hoping for lots more support from the horror community to get it made.

Taking quite a different turn from the folk-horror sub-genre on this occasion, “Nefarious” centres on a home invasion which goes horrifically wrong and leaves the protagonists fighting for their lives against a predator of monstrous proportions.

The film promises to focus on themes relating to real world current issues including poverty & the class divide, mental health and sexual manipulation, and boasts a cast horror fans will be familiar with in Toby Wynn-Davies (Escape From Cannibal Farm, Dogged) and star of the hit Crypt TV short film “The Birch”, Aaron Thomas Ward.

The team have promised some imaginative & gory practical effects, combined with a very character driven story which should appeal to horror fans everywhere.

INTERVIEW: David Naughton
untitled It’s not every day you get to speak to the lead actor in possibly your favourite horror film of all time. Especially on a Tuesday. Tuesdays are usually rubbish! David Naughton should need no introduction to horror fans. Back in 1981, An American Werewolf In London had unprepared cinema goers laughing heartily one second and jumping out of their seats in terror the next. Its tale of two young American tourists coming face-to-teeth with a legendary lycanthropic beast perfectly married a genuinely funny script with razor sharp editing, groundbreaking special effects and a flawless cast to create a monster movie that is still many people’s benchmark today Read on...
