During the news bombardment that is the American Film Market, we told you about a film called The Good People. Don’t remember? We don’t blame you, it may have gotten lost in the shuffle.
The film is a directing vehicle for newcomer Corin Hardy and, when we first reported on the project, we had a small synopsis to share with you.
Today, we have more plot details – you can head inside for the synopsis and stay tuned for more updates on this creature feature.
The Good People is being produced by Occupant Films.
Fraught economic pressures at work force Adam Hitchens, a London based conservationist, to take a job surveying an Irish forest. He hopes the move to a mill house deep in the idyllic countryside will be a breath of fresh air for his postnatally depressed wife Clare, their young baby son Finn and dog Iggy.
Not everyone approves of their arrival however. A farmer with strong beliefs in local tradition and folklore warns of danger if Adam does not stop unsettling the ancient, sacred forests with his tests and assessments.
When someone or something breaks into the house at night, with the apparent intention of harming their child, the worried couple believes the locals are taking it a step further, intent on driving them away.
After the police aren’t able to catch the elusive intruders, events take a turn for the unexplainable and terrifying as the millhouse comes under attack from horrifying vicious beings that lurk in the sacred woods surrounding their smallholding.
Adam and Clare must fight to protect both their child and themselves and survive the invasion of nightmarish creatures known as The Good People.
