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

Reyes

A message from Reyes producer René Wiesner:

What do Switzerland, Mexico, Sweden and Germany have in common? Production companies from all of these countries were involved in German mystery horror feature Reyes. International production companies are working on this project together under the leadership of Uprise Pictures [DE]. The poster motif is now online and its first trailer celebrated its premiere at the end of March (included below this article).

Reyes is director Patrick Templin’s feature film debut, and he can already look back on his work history as a producer. It tells the story of author Mick suffering from depression that will be embodied by Danish Actor Kim Sønderholm (The Night Circus). Mick is at the low point of his life and decides to return to his old home in order to get rid of his writing block and get back on his feet.

“As the movie idea came to me, I already envisioned Kim as the main protagonist. Only a very experienced actor would be able to handle the movie”, says director Patrick Templin.

Arriving at his old home he meets his lost love Leya. He discovers soon that she has a secret and is involved in mysterious doings. Her behavior is linked with a secret cult and bloody rituals. Ritual murders whose origin is far away.

“It was especially exciting for me that the story space needed much relocation. To such an extent that we have decided to turn the film into a co-production” said producer Flavio Speglitz.

The team is preparing itself currently for shooting in the 3rd quarter of 2017. Even now, it can already boast an international cast. “Kim from Denmark, Bill Hutchens from Australia, Antonio Monroi from Mexico – and one complete segment will be shot in Mexico. Not usual for a German independent film,” adds producer René Wiesner.

The movie has been self-financed and therefore still hopes for support of sponsors.

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...
