Cathedrals will fall, the river will run red... and THE BIRD will be SLAUGHTERED!

Burn

Slaughtered Bird Creations and Dragon Egg Media’s debut film collaboration, Burn, has wrapped and entered post-production.

Our very own short psychological horror – directed by Judson Vaughan, creator of Pedro and the multi award-winning Soul Breaker – was filmed during February in Hertfordshire and north London, UK, over three days.

After several local disappearances prompt a nationwide manhunt, Burn focusses on Peter and Louise – two of many gripped by media-induced fear. When their son, Charlie, is born, the pair must find a way of raising him amid continuing public hysteria and incomprehensible personal tragedy.

Starring Max Cavenham and Emma Kelly, the story is the brainchild of ME (Chris Barnes/@TheBlueTook), and – in partnership with Vaughan’s Dragon Egg Media label – will become the first project released under our new production umbrella, Slaughtered Bird Creations.

Incorporating its our love of precise tension-building, Burn’s approach is both patient and unrelenting, stunningly captured by Joaquim Barreto’s cinematography, and brings classic psychological horror to the forefront of independent British cinema once again.

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...
