Foresight Features, the studio behind Monster Brawl and Exit Humanity, has teamed up with acclaimed writer Tony Burgess (“Pontypool Changes Everything”) for a 1950′s style throwback entitled Hellmouth.
Directed by John Geddes (Exit Humanity), the film stars Stephen McHattie (Pontypool) as Charlie Baker, a dying grave keeper who’s forced to take one final job. The film also features Siobhan Murphy, Julian Richings, Boyd Banks the star of Exit Humanity, Mark Gibson and some iconic cameo’s including, Bruce McDonald (PontyPool). An ode to classic horror and fantasy, Hellmouth is a VFX spectacle that chronicles Charlie Baker’s dark descent through gothic landscapes, demonic worlds and medieval realms as he journeys to discover the secret behind a mysterious cemetery.
“I wanted to create a story-driven film with fantasy and horror combined. Something that was directly inspired by the era of Hitchcock and even Ed Wood. Working with a writer like Tony Burgess was a pleasure as we both love the simplicity in many of the old classic films of the 50′s and 60′s, and even earlier in films like Nosferatu and Faust. We worked really hard to make Hellmouth something fresh,” says director, John Geddes
